The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Extended Edition is out now to download in HD ahead of its DVD and Blu-ray release next week.
To celebrate, we’ve got a glimpse at the oodles of special features available as both iTunes Extras and as bonus content on the discs. This Into the Dragon’s Lair – Push the Performance featurette gives you a closer look at Benedict Cumberbatch practising his best dragon face, complete with trying out different emotional expressions with dots stuck all over his face.
The Extended Edition of the second in Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit trilogy features an extra 25 minutes and more than nine hours of new special features, including an audio commentary with Jackson and Philippa Boyens, co-producer/screenwriter, as well as The Appendices, a multi-part documentary focusing on various aspects of the film and the trilogy.
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Extended Edition will be released on Monday 3rd November as a 5-disc Blu-ray 3D set featuring the Blu-ray 3D and Blu-ray versions of the Extended Edition and a 5 disc DVD. The Blu-ray 3D will also include a 2D digital version of the movie with UltraViolet.
If you can’t wait until then, though, you can download it now from iTunes and blinkbox – with the special features available through iTunes.
