Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Join Peter Jackson on the Journey to the World’s Greatest Adventure Five-disc Extended Edition includes 13 minutes of revealing never-before-seen film footage and nearly 9 hours of fascinating in-depth looks at the production.

Review

Charming, spectacular, technically audacious… in short, everything you expect from a Peter Jackson movie. A feeling of familiarity does take hold in places, but this is an epically entertaining first course. --Total Film, Matthew Leyland

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey isn't 'unexpected' at all, though between its lighter tone and a decade's worth of improvements in digital film techniques, there should be enough of a novelty factor to delight most fans. --NPR Bob, Mondello

It isn't as delirious a journey as we experienced a decade ago, but it's still filled with wonder, monsters, and thrills. --ReelViews, James Berardinelli

The Journey That Started It All

Lose yourself in the thrilling action adventure of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. The long-awaited prequel to Peter Jackson’s spellbinding Lord of the Rings trilogy, the movie tells the tale of hobbit Bilbo Baggins, who one day gets a surprise visit from the wizard Gandalf and a band of homeless dwarves. Led by their former king Thorin, they are on a dangerous quest to recover the lost kingdom and treasure of Eredor. Persuading Bilbo to join them, they head off through the dangerous lands of Middle-earth where they will fight trolls, orcs and other magical creatures to defeat the terrible dragon, Smaug.

Trivia

Martin Freeman was Peter Jackson’s first choice for the role of Bilbo. In fact, Jackson completely reworked the filming schedule to accommodate Freeman, who was busy with the BBC series Sherlock.

Aidan Turner resigned from a BBC series he was in so that he could accept the role of dwarf Kili in The Hobbit.

Although the characters Frodo, Saruman and Galadriel appear in the movie, none of them are actually in Tolkien’s book, The Hobbit.

Peter Jackson is one of the few directors to have two films that grossed over a billion dollars wordwide.

In the film, Azog is a digital character created using motion-capture technology.

A Mesmerizing Fantasy Tale

  • Based on the classic novel by J.R.R. Tolkien and directed by Peter Jackson
  • Beautifully packaged five-disc DVD set, plus Ultraviolet digital copy
  • Extended edition features 13 minutes of never-before-seen footage
  • Contains nearly nine hours of fascinating bonus material
  • Also available as a three-disc Blu-ray version

Meet the Cast

Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman)

A young hobbit, Bilbo is enlisted by Gandalf as a burglar in the dwarves’ mission. At first reluctant, Bilbo ultimately can’t resist the temptation of adventure.

Gandalf (Ian McKellen)

A wise wizard of Middle-earth, Gandalf has joined the dwarves in their mission to reclaim the lands and treasure lost many years before.

Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage)

A dwarf and exiled king, Thorin is the leader of Bilbo and the band of dwarves on their expedition to the Lonely Mountain to confront Smaug.

Gollum (Andy Serkis)

A tortured and wretched creature, Gollum possesses and in return is possessed by a golden ring with magical powers.

Elrond (Hugo Weaving)

Elrond is the immortal founder and master of the elven kingdom Rivendell. Among the most powerful and wisest of elves, he aids Bilbo and the dwarves in their quest.

Saruman (Christopher Lee)

Also known as Saruman the White, Saruman’s greatest power is his voice, which always sounds like the voice of reason when heard by the weak-minded.

Galadriel (Cate Blanchett)

Tall, beautiful and solemn, Galadriel is one of the most powerful elves in Rivendell. She promises Gandalf that she will help him in his quest.

Azog (Manu Bennett)

A vicious and powerful orc chieftain, Azog seeks revenge against the dwarf Thorin Oakenshield, who severed Azog’s arm in battle many years earlier.

Format: DVD
WHAT WILL WE SEE IN THE EXTENDED EDITION:

1. More of DALE, including the BLACK ARROWS. Director Peter Jackson mentions a previously unseen character: "Girion, who is defending [the city of] Dale using black arrows against Smaug. And the black arrows play a part in an ongoing story, for they are the one thing that can pierce the dragon's hide."

2. More king of the wood elves; THRANDUIL. Peter Jackson: "There are also issues with Thranduil. We get some of the reason why he and the dwarves had a falling out - to do with these white gems..."

3. More of HOBBITON. Producer Phillipa Boyens: "You are going to get more of Hobbiton. We always wanted to wend our way through Hobbiton, but in the end Bilbo has to run out of the door."

4. The OLD TOOK'S PARTY: In which we see a younger Gandalf meet Bilbo Baggins as a young child, convincing the wizard of the young hobbit's bravery and courage. I won't spoil it for you, but it involves a dragon and a bit of magic.

5. Dwarf antics at RIVENDELL. Peter Jackson: "You are going to get some serious Dwarvish disrespect of the elves at Rivendell." Bofur leads the troupe in a rowdy chorus of "The Man in the Moon", a classic Tolkien pub-song.

6. The SONG of the GOBLIN KING. Producer Fran Walsh: "You are going to get more Goblin Town, and the Great Goblin singing his song. It is a great song, but it was just another delay in terms of moving the story along." Peter Jackson: "A number one hit from the Goblin King. Barry Humphries is going to rise up the charts!"

Well, all looking good on these fronts! The roads lead ever on and on...

Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
The packaging is great, the slipcase is thick and sturdy and the back features an embossed acorn emblem of Bilbo's waist coat buttons. The case that the Blu-Ray discs are in is black, just like the Lord Of The Rings Extended Edition Blu-Ray set. Not a blue case like most other Blu-Ray movies which I think makes this version cohesive with the Lord Of The Rings set, which I as a fan appreciate the continuity. The special features are as follows:

-The Filmmakers' Commentary - Director/writer/producer Peter Jackson and writer/co-producer Philippa Boyens provide their perspective and stories on creating the first film.

-New Zealand: Home of Middle-Earth - From Matamata to Queenstown, travel with Peter Jackson and his team across the stunning locations of New Zealand, transformed by the filmmakers into Middle-Earth.

-The Appendices Part 7: A Long-Expected Journey - A 14-part chronological history of the filming of An Unexpected Journey, covering pre-production in the various departments of the film in the months leading up to the start of principal photography, the boot camp training for the main cast, and the work done on set chronologically through the three shooting blocks and in the world of its digital effects.

Almost clicked the order button, but due to my love of the extended versions of the original trilogy, I decided to do a little research before I made that mistake. in doing so, I discovered that the Blue-Ray/DVD set for release on March 19th will contain only the theatrical version of the movie. Warner Bros is including a teaser trailer containing Dragon Smaug with this version in order to entice people to buy it. The extended version of 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey' will be released in time for Christmas 2013. As with the Lord of the Rings Trilogy, Warner Bros. is trying to stick it to the consumer again by hoping people will buy both versions. Sorry, WB... I can wait another nine months. In the meantime, I'll rent a copy to satisfy my urge to see it sooner.

Format: DVD
Man, I love this movie. Unfortunately I haven't seen it in about a year, because I didn't want to purchase the DVD until the extended edition came out. But it was definitely worth the wait!

The extended/new scenes are great bonuses, just as they were in LOTR (I actually hadn't seen the theatrical versions of LOTR until after I had seen the extended editions about a billion times, and I always felt like so much was missing). It's perfectly understandable why these were not included in the theatrical version, but I'm so glad they were put in for the extended editions.

Of course, similar to the movie, if one is expecting the book of The Hobbit exactly, you'll be disappointed. But what I love about Peter Jackson's Hobbit is that he explores many details of Tolkien's world and tries to bridge the gap between The Hobbit and LOTR. Is it necessary? Not at all, or else Tolkien would have done it that way. But I do think it's incredibly fun and interesting to see things fleshed out more. I know the story of the book well, so it's just great to be able to see Jackson's adaptation, including the addition of things created by Tolkien and things Jackson and his team created--again, it is, after all, an adaptation, and in my mind, a great one.

A brief breakdown of the extended scenes:

-More of Erebor. You get to see a little more of Erebor and its wealth, as well as more tension between the Dwarves and the Elves--an offering of gems is made to King Thranduil, but taken away once he tries to take it.

-Slightly more of Smaug. Not much at all, and I didn't even notice this edition until I read it on another site, but you do see an extremely quick flash of his silhouetted body.

Dvd format
and is this really 1.33:1 aspect ratio as the description on Amazon says? I'm referring to the DVD and Ultraviolet set only, not the blu-rays.

How is this different from the 2 disc set?
The two disc version contains only the extended version of the film. The five disc has three appendices or behind the scenes addition content. Hopefully this helps.

Can you play Blu-Ray discs on a regular DVD player
Unfortunately, Blu Ray discs can only be plated on a Blu Ray player or a PlayStation 3. It sucks, since all of the special thing seem to be only with the Blu Ray, but yeah no DVD players. I don't have a Blu Ray player and this set and the upcoming Dark Knight Trilogy collectors set make me... Read More
