As expected, the Extended Edition DVD and blu-ray of Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey will feature a longer cut of the first part of his adaptation of J. R. R. Tolkien’s classic fantasy novel. Approximately thirteen minutes worth of new footage. And here is just one minute of that new material, a scene between Martin Freeman’s Bilbo Baggins and Hugo Weaving’s Elrond in which Bilbo pleasantly discovers that the elvish king might not be quite what he expected.
In addition to the extra footage, the Extended Edition will include nearly nine hours of new bonus features including a commentary track from Jackson, Fran Walsh and Philippa Boyens and a number of featurettes. The download will be available from October 22nd and the disc from November 5th.
