Easter egg: When you insert any of the 6 movie DVDs in the Star Wars saga, once the FBI screen pops up (red in Episodes I, II, IV, V, VI; and blue in Episode III), enter a number between 1 and 3 (and press Enter if needed). Once the Star Wars logo and the Episode number disappears, a menu with the planet that you chose (and not what the DVD randomly chooses) will load.
Easter egg: On the Main Menu, when Scooby-Doo is startled by the ghost and he drops the Scooby Snack in his mouth, highlight it and then press Enter. This will access a short featurette on how it rained on set, during filming. Also, on the Special Features' second page, hit left on your remote and the sign with "Zoinks" under it will light up, then hit Enter.
Easter egg: HIDDEN BONUS MATERIAL on the Special Extended DVD Version: There are two secrets on the discs containing the film, one on each disc. Instructions for both: go to the Scene Index on either disc, then scroll down to the LAST scene (either "The Council of Elrond" on Disc 1 or "Official Fan Club Credits" on Disc 2), then scroll down one more time. On the first DVD, a little ring will appear next to the line "new scene." Click Enter. This leads to an introduction by Peter Jackson and the MTV Movie Awards parody on the Council of Elrond (starring Jack Black and Sarah Michelle Gellar), which isn't suitable for children (and does not appear in the UK version because of the BBFC). On the second DVD, scene 48, click on the number 48 - on the right side of the screen - and the silhouettes of Barad Dur and Orthanc appear just underneath, click it. You'll see another introduction by Peter Jackson, and the Two Towers cinematic preview trailer: the one played in theatres after the Fellowship of the Ring, towards the end of its running period.
Easter egg: 2nd disc: Go into the Great Hall and choose "The Quest of Sir Cadogan". During the introduction to the challenge, between the part when you see Sir Cadogan sleeping (maybe) and when he gives flowers to a girl, hit the left arrow on your remote and you'll automatically go to the picture gallery (which you will also get to if you play the challenge and get the highest rank). You'll still have to play the challenge afterwards, though, unless if you hit Menu.
Easter egg: On the film disc (disc 1) of the Theatrical Version, in the language selection menu there is a THX logo somewhere. Highlight it using the arrows on your remote, then enter the number 1138 while you have it highlighted (may vary on different DVD players, on mine I have to push a little 10 button, then 1 1 3 8, which makes 1138). You will then be treated to a sequence of bloopers from the film.
Easter egg: From the main menu of the single disc DVD, highlight 'Play'. Then press right, and the arrow should turn blue. If you hit enter here, the door opens and Santa Claus appears. On disc 2, full screen version, highlight 'Play' in the main menu, then select right. The red arrow next to the chair turns green and Santa shows up when you press Enter/OK.
Easter egg: An easter egg on the Spanish edition of the DVD. Don't know if it exists on other editions. On the menu, select Extra Features, then, scroll down to the Menu Option and press right on your remote. You'll see a new option where you can watch an old music video from Dio.
Easter egg: On Disc 2, in the Main Menu choose the "Moonlight Serenade" Scene Progression. For PC: then click on the front tooth of the skeleton, which turns gold when touched. For TV: scroll down to Main Menu on that screen, then click the down arrow twice and hit enter on the remote. A short interview with Keith Richards will be seen.Super Grover
Easter egg: First, watch the movie or watch a special feature, then go to the main menu. In the main menu, highlight any of the four options, but don't press enter. Press the right button and the "Tribulation Force" part of the title will turn from a yellow color to a red color. Press enter. You will hear a funny story from the Director of Photography.
Easter egg: On standard widescreen DVD, on the main menu. When the rats are scurrying from right to left, a rat will appear next to a pan on the far left. When that happens, you will be able to move to that pan and click on the link that is there (if the rat is not there, you will not be able to go there). There is a short "commercial" for rat poison.GrafSpee
Easter egg: This Easter Egg is on the first page on the Extras DVD. Go between the Setup and More buttons, and a crown pops up. Click on it to bring up the Easter Egg. It's called Toastie (it's about toasted sandwiches).
Easter egg: On the main DVD menu screen, when play is highlighted, press up. You will highlight one of the crystals. Press enter, and it will take you to a screen with a bunch of different character's faces. Press enter on any of them, it will give you a soundbite from that character. Also, you can highlight the two crystals on the bottom of that page that are on either side of the main menu option that will give you two other soundbites. On the main menu screen, you can't seem to highlight the other crystal. I don't know why.
Easter egg: Insert the disk, then when on the main menu, go to "Language select." When on this page, you'll see a picture of Hal and Mauricio. Go up, then hit left, and you'll see a little blue arrow. Hit enter to see a short clip of how the special effects technicians made Maurico's tail work.Hamster
