The LOTR Movie Site
February 15, 2000Official German LOTR Beta Site
Cirdan at Der Herr der Ringe Film dropped me a line
today to let me know that he had discovered a beta version of the official German LOTR
The beta site can be visited here. It's likely that the site
will be moved once the creators find out that we've located it, though. As a precaution,
I've taken several screen shots of the site so interested parties can get a taste of what
it looks like even after it's been removed from its current location.
After arriving at the home page you
can choose to view an enhanced Shockwave version or a standard HTML version. Both are
beautiful, and bear a strong resemblence to the official English LOTR site.
The company that created the site is called CoCo New Media and appears to be a
German multimedia presentation provider.
When I visited, none of the links
worked and there wasn't any information on the site. My German isn't that good, but I was
able to work out the names on the navigation bar. They are as follows:

A box on the left-hand side of the
page also read:
Special thanks to Cirdan and Herr der Ringe Film for correcting my
translation of the above text, as well as the navigation menu text.
