image for Peter Jackson Discovered Visual Inconsistencies in ‘Lord of the Rings’ Trilogy That Needed Fixing

Jackson remastered all six Middle Earth movies in 4K so they would look "like they were shot at the same time.".

Peter Jackson directed three “Lord of the Rings” films and three “Hobbit” films over the course of nearly 15 years, and now he’s back at it again this month with the 4K remasters of all six Middle Earth-set films.

The Oscar-winning filmmaker made remastering his epic franchise a priority after a re-watch of the original “Lord of the Rings” trilogy proved a bit irksome due to visual inconsistencies among the three installments: “The Fellowship of the Ring,” “The Two Towers,” and “The Return of the King.”.

These filmmaking decisions gave “The Hobbit” a look and feel separate from “The Lord of the Rings” movies.

By remastering all six films in 4K, Jackson hopes to finally bring a visual continuity to his Middle Earth franchise.

“It’s always a meddle to make something feel consistent that was shot over a long period of time,” Jackson says.

The Middle Earth series is now available on 4K Ultra HD on Blu-Ray and Digital via Warner Bros. Home Entertainment. »
