More King is a Good Thing
Peter Jackson says that almost an hour’s worth of extra footage will make its way onto the extended DVD version of LORD OF THE RINGS: RETURN OF THE KING. One of the scenes apparently is a drinking competition between Gimli and Legolas. “I really quite liked [it],” Jackson said. “But we felt [it was too comedic] at a point when we wanted to set up the tension of the story. And there’s a sequence of Sam† and Frodo disguised as orcs, where they end up in the orc army for a while.”
