Two weeks ago I reported on the Narnia News Blog and in The Hobbit Whole News that there is a new documentary coming out on DVD about the history of the sword. Reclaiming the Blade will definitely be of interest to fans of The Lord of the Rings and The Chronicles of Narnia. Tolkien fans will be delighted that the bonus features will include an interview with Viggo Mortensen (Aragorn), who talked at length about Eärendil and The Flame of the West—Narsil, the sword that was re-forged.
Reclaiming the Blade is available for pre-order on ReclaimingTheBlade.com, to be shipped March 30. It can also be downloaded from iTunes (movie only, without bonus features) beginning March 30. The DVDs will be in stores and on the usual Internet sites May 5.
UPDATE 24 March, 2009. Here is a direct link to order the DVD with the bonus features: GalatiaFilms.com I am told that the bonus features will not be available before the DVD is released, so I will not be able to review the Special Two DVD set until
the first week of April.
UPDATE 29 April 2009. My review of the DVD Set with the special features will not be published until 7 July, 2009, which is the “street date” for retail sales of the DVD’s.
