Hobbit: The Trilogy
One of the most magical epic adventures in motion picture history, Peter Jackson adapted the cinematic trilogy from the enduringly beloved novel, The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien. The trilogy tells a continuous story set in Middle-earth 60 years before The Lord of the Rings. Nominated for 7 Academy Awards and winning numerous prominent awards, The Hobbit Trilogy is an epic journey of men, hobbits, dwarves, elves and the rest of Middle-earth’s creatures and cultures.
The Lord of the Rings Extended Edition Trilogy
The Lord of the Rings Trilogy tells the story of Frodo Baggins (Elijah Wood), a hobbit who battles against the Dark Lord Sauron to save his world, Middle-earth, from the grip of evil. In the films, Frodo and his fellowship of friends and allies embark on a desperate journey to rid the earth of the source of Sauron's greatest strength, the One Ring - a ring that has the power to enslave the inhabitants of Middle-earth. The trilogy tells tales of extraordinary adventures across the treacherous landscape of Middle-earth and reveals how the power of friendship, love and courage can hold the forces of darkness at bay.

This set is absolutely fantastic. It's a simple, yet elegant set for fans of the theatrical editions of the films.
For those that may not know, there are two editions of each film: the theatrical edition, and the extended edition. The theatrical edition is what you watched in the theater. The extended edition contains many more scenes that originally didn't make the final cut, but were added in later to expand the storytelling. This set contains the theatrical editions.
The extended editions are great and all, but they run for a very long time (up to 3+ hours). Not all of us have the stamina to watch a movie that goes on for 4 hours. Besides, the theatrical editions are great already.
Additionally, the extended editions are so long that they actually require you to switch discs to continue watching the movie. When I was a kid, I remember my parents having Titanic on VHS. The movie was so long, it had to be put on two VHS tapes, and you had to switch tapes during the middle of the film. That's the same case for the extended editions of Lord of the Rings for both DVD and Blu-ray. Even though Blu-ray discs hold a lot of memory, the extended editions take up so much that they had to place the films on two discs each.
You don't have to worry about that with the theatrical editions. The entire theatrical edition fits on a single disc, so no having to get up and switch discs. In my opinion, this makes for a better viewing experience. As for the packaging, it comes in an elegantly designed cardboard sleeve. The cover art is attractive and features several of the most well-liked characters of the films. The films themselves are placed inside a blu-ray case. The great thing is that they're not stacked on top of each other. Instead, each disc has its own space; they're placed on "plastic pages", so to speak.
However, do know that this set does not contain all the special features that the extended editions do. This set is more "bare-bones", so to speak. You get basic features like subtitles, but nothing like a making-of documentary or behind-the-scenes clips. This is really intended moreso for people who just want the films. If you're fine with that, and you don't need all that extra stuff, this set is perfect.
