If you’re tempted to purchase The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Extended Edition on DVD/Blu-ray later this year, Amazon’s exclusive set may be the one to buy.

Besides 13 minutes of never-before-seen footage, the Extended Edition includes an audio commentary from director Peter Jackson and new behind-the-scenes looks at the making of the movie. All of the new special features reportedly total nine hours.

“I’m thrilled that the Extended Edition will give fans the opportunity to experience certain key scenes in the film as they were originally shot, as well as an abundance of special features,” said Jackson. “It’s exciting to present this expanded and enriched version of ‘An Unexpected Journey’ to allow fans to fully immerse themselves in the movie, before seeing the second part of the trilogy.”

You can purchase the Amazon set at this link for $69.99, or you can order without the scuplture for $28.99 on Amazon. Both products will be released November 5.

    UK customers of Amazon are still unable to purchase this. Our only option is to import it from Germany at £64 or $100, plus possible postage costs.

    I think the statue should be available in all countries like the lord of the rings’ extended editions were.
