The Hobbit DVD release

Due to recent illness ( OK it was the flu, but a REALLY bad flu) I missed the announcement by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment officially announcing that the marvellous The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey DVD release date for March 19th, 2013. As well as the DVD there’ll be a Blu-ray/DVD/UltraViolet and 3D BD/DVD/Ultraviolet Combo Pack. Hurrah!!
Sadly, the releases don’t seem to include any deleted or extended scenes included in the specifications, so as in the LOTR releases is seems that we will have to wait until the extended editions come out later this year

As far as i can see, special feature in the March release are;
  • New Zealand: Home of Middle Earth
  • Video Blogs
  • Start of Production
  • Location Scouting
  • Shooting Block One
  • Filming in 3D
  • Locations Part 1
  • Locations Part 2
  • Stone St. Studios Tour
  • Wrap of Principal Photography
  • Post-production Overview
  • Wellington World Premiere
  • Theatrical Trailers
  • Dwarves
  • Letter Opener
  • Bilbo Contract
  • Gandalf Wagers
  • Gollum Paths
  • Game Trailers
  • The Hobbit: Kingdoms of Middle-Earth
  • Guardians of Middle-Earth
  • Lego The Lord of the Rings
  • Standard DVD copy of An Unexpected Journey (2D)
  • UltraViolet digital copy An Unexpected Journey (2D) (expires 3/19/15)

Having said all that I may wait until the rumoured December release date to coincide with the next theatrical instalment for the extended version. Being the nerd that I am, the extended versions of LOTR are the only ones that I ever watch - so The Hobbit, which I seem to remember ran at over a zillion hours means that it may take the rest of my life to see all the extended material, scenes and deleted scenes. It's a dirty job, but someones got to do it........ Ah, to hell with it. I'll get the ordinary DVD in March and then the extended one too.........
