What will The Hobbit Extended Edition cough up?

No Stereotype Sunday today, I’ve started my post-graduate course and I didn’t have time to fiddle with RA pics.

RAin check?

I’ve mentioned before that I wouldn’t be buying the DVD of The Hobbit until the Extended Edition was out.

 It’s out on Amazon November 11th, conveniently just in time to stick on my B-Day list (and pop it in Magzy’s account basket as a not so subtle hint).

It seems that it will feature an extra 13-minute cut of the film and almost 9 hours of new special features.

Don’t get me wrong, there’s no doubt that when DOS is out on DVD Jackson will add another 13 minutes to AUJ, we’ll just never catch up.

Talking about special features, 9 hours is a heck of a lot of footage, until you start breaking it down.

Two commentaries is almost 6 hours right there.

Then there are those interesting clips that feature everything but the kitchen sink with regards to production CG etc. which you end up watching once, if that.

The big question is, how much more RA, Aidan, and Dean will we get?

I’d like to list what I would like to see:

– Richard Armitage getting into character (as in slipping into the Thorin costume… and out of it, showering etc.)

– Thorin (Richard) braiding Kili’s (Aidan’s) hair

– Dwarf strip poker

– any bathing under a waterfall configuration

– what the dwarves in barrels were up to after hours

What about you, what new footage would you like to see?
