BREAKING: Peter Jackson On The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’s Extended Edition


Pick up a new issue of Empire magazine this Thursday, June 27 for the latest scoop on The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. While you struggle to wait for it, we’ve got you covered with some very exciting news! An Extended edition of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is planned to arrive just a month before fans don their hairy feet for the theatrical release of The Desolation of Smaug. Thus, the road that goes ever on and takes you further over the hills was planned very carefully, to patch the gap between films as best possible.

“You are going to get some serious Dwarvish disrespect of the elves at Rivendell,” says Peter Jackson. So get ready to embrace the delightfulness of the dwarves on a full scale, because apparently the dining with an “enemy” scene featured a lot more than just an augmented dislike for green food. We are also promised a closer look at Hobbiton and Goblin Town, as well as the explanation of what was the essence of Thranduil’s problem with the Dwarves.

We also got you a little preview of the interview with Peter Jackson regarding the extended edition.

We are always excited for your feedback, so let us know if you’re also grabbing some popcorn to heat your cold days with this edition, because we are definitely on board!

  1. Yes, well, in the Hobbit, the Elves of Rivendell certainly were not pompous: “tra-la-la-lilly” etc.

  2. No, how could they be, they were upstaged by some very delightful rabbits, and downstaged by birdshit all over Radagasts face… yuk. I must say that the scene where Radagast is trying to heal the mole/the bevisiting spiders was an extremely out-of-it experience… PURE Peter Jackson. Even my friend whom works in top films as a set dresser was entirely blown away by that scene. Radagast doesn’t not help with the weirdness either. Again when he was visiting Dol Guldur, we felt another of these very out-of-it moments starting to manifest in the film. Totally unexpected and thoroughly welcome.
