Not yet, but I keep reading that primary editing is almost finished - a big thing in this movie.

The release date is after September because every film before that is given on the 'Dark Horizons' website.

It has a URL at the 'movie database', the sequel does too, and is scheduled for a 2003 release date.

Release Date

I saw a movie this weekend and there was a Lord Of The Rings preview. The clip said that all 3 movies will be released during x-mas. As in 2001, 2002, and 2003. Have to say, what little they showed was great. I can't wait to it.
