  1. Oh Angie, I was so excited when I saw this info earlier. I’ve seen comments on The One Ring complaining how little extra footage there’ll be in the extended edition, but I think that’s because the LOTR trilogy had quite a lot added in. I’m just thrilled at the listing of all the behind the scenes extras- it’s going to be every bit as good as we got 10 years ago on LOTR EE’s and I can’t wait! Have you seen this complete listing of all the extras?

  2. Of course that is what I zeroed in as well…. Really good picture and I can’t wait to get and watch the extended edition. 13 min extra is not as much as the additional footage in the Lord of the Rings, but it is still a lot. Hopefully it is a lot more of Thorin – and not the Goblin King or some such….

    • One part is a scene with Elrond and Bilbo. Since there are still two more movies to go rather than the two originally planned for TH, I suspect that did away with a lot of what would have otherwise been extra footage. Sounds as if there will be a lot of interesting extras, however.
