Bilbo BagginsWhen watching The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, I’m sure everyone’s first thought was: it’s not long enough. Right? No, of course not, but in case you did feel cheated out of a six hour movie, then we have some great news for you. The extended edition of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey will be available for download on October 22 of this year, followed by its release on DVD and Blu-ray November 4.

Okay, so it won’t actually be a six hour movie. The special features include only an additional 13 minutes of the film shockingly enough, but there will also be almost nine hours of bonus material, including commentaries and making-of documentaries. Watch it and get caught up for when Desolation of Smaug hits theaters on December 13.

Looking forward to the extended edition? Hoping for more singing? Let us know in the comments below!
