Word has reached us that Warner Bros. has confirmed an extended edition of Peter Jackson‘s (The Lord of the Rings and King Kong) ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’ to be released on home video sometime during the fourth quarter of 2013. The idea of an extended edition is interesting but not surprising with what did did with ‘The Lord of the Rings’ trilogy. The timing is also of no real surprise with the second movie ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug’ to arrive in theaters next Decemeber. Warner Bros. actually has quite a line up prepared for this year with ‘The Dark Knight Trilogy Ultimate Collector’s Edition’ coming up and a 3D conversion of ‘The Wizard of Oz’ to be released on Blu-ray later next year. Check out the release calender below.
