In what is said to be the first time a major studio’s film has been released as a multimedia NFT, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, in partnership with content blockchain firm Eluvio have launched The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (Extended Version) Web3 Movie.
The entertainment offering is described as an exciting new way for fans to engage with the film through two dynamic menu experience options –The Mystery Edition and The Epic Edition. Both allow owners to watch the extended version of the film in 4K Ultra HD, access more than 8 hours of special features, view image galleries, discover hidden AR collectibles, and explore themed navigation menus based on iconic locations from the film, as well as own and trade the experience in a community marketplace.

The Mystery Edition includes a surprise interactive location-based navigation menu from one of three film locations (The Shire, Rivendell, Mines of Moria), location-specific key art, the extended edition of the film The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, over 8 hours of special features, image galleries specific to the location assigned, and hidden AR collectibles. The Epic Edition includes all three location-based navigation menus, along with all the features of the Mystery Edition.
