Ralph Bakshi's Animated Lord of the Rings comes to Blu-ray

Ralph Bakshi's Animated Lord of the Rings comes to Blu-ray

Oh boy. I remember this animated version of Lord of the Rings quite fondly from my youth! This is some amazing, groundbreaking Ralph Bakshi animation. And while the rotoscoping technique isn’t favored by everybody (actors in costume were traced to create the animation) the result has now become a timeless classic. But I didn’t imagine we’d be seeing Lord of the Rings on Blu-ray this soon in the formats life cycle. It’s clearly being released as a compliment to the live-action Peter Jackson films, which hit the shops on the same day, April 6th. Can’t wait to see it again!
