As expected really. We'll probably get the previews at SDCC in July.

I think I'm actually going to pass on this one [In reply to] Can't Post

I'll be in the air force by the time it's released anyways, and I'm a big fan of bonus material, which this release lacks. Will wait for the EE.

Comic-Con [In reply to] Can't Post

Was hoping we might get a preview of the EE. I do think we'll see that and of course something dealing with DoS at Comic-Con in July. So I plan to camp out the night before the big panel again.

I'm not sure which version I'll go with. I like that Gandalf cover and usually the 3D ones come with the 2D version. If thats the only way to get the digitial version I'll do that. I'm surprised they're not doing multiple covers to be honest.

Air force, eh? [In reply to] Can't Post

Thank you for serving! Smile

I'm going to skip this one, too. Unless there's additional bonus features not being disclosed, it's not worth the price, IMO. All the vlogs are available online (unless they're planning to take them down?). Hopefully the EE has the same amount of behind-the-scenes material as the LOTR ones. I'll happily wait for that.

DVD covers [In reply to] Can't Post

Odd choice of covers.

I'd have preferred that Bilbo leaving Bag End teaser as the main cover.

Very odd that Beorn is on a cover as he wasn't in the film.

Bizarre.

The Beorn one was just a temp cover... [In reply to] Can't Post

...from months back (it even says "Artwork TBA"). It will not be used on any of the Blu-ray/DVD releases. Blu-ray.com just hasn't received the final art for the 1-disc version yet.

The new ones in the press release are... [In reply to] Can't Post

The new ones - the 2D cover with Bilbo, Thorin, Gandalf, and a few of the dwarves and the 3D cover with Gandalf are final covers.

But the Beorn cover for the single disc release is months old and not a final design.

...for people that haven't seen them yet or for the collectors that want to own every media neatly packaged. As far as myself goes, they were awesome pre-release hype builders and i loved watching them but that's the past, i dunno if i'll ever watch them again. We'll get much more in-depth featurettes on the SEE that cover much of the same ground and more (at least i hope).

Promo material [In reply to] Can't Post

One of the reasons I wasn't wanting them to be on the blu-ray. They were shot and edited to build up to the film, not to look behind the scenes afterward. I mean, lots of stuff was blurred out because we weren't meant to have seen it at the time. I still think they're great and look forward to the ones for DoS and TABA, but I also want some real documentaries in the same vein as the LOTR ones.

Yeah, but it's not like the Lord of the Rings dvds were any different... [In reply to] Can't Post

The theatrical editions for those films were the same - promotional material, trailers, etc. It wasn't until the extended cuts that we got more in-depth material.

Watching documentaries with things er dont really see after we have all seen the film is weird.

I expect great documentaries on the EE [In reply to] Can't Post

Specifically ones that talk about the finished film rather than just about the filming and whatnot. Commentaries are generally good for this type of thing. Hopefully we have such great commentaries again!

It can also be nice [In reply to] Can't Post

For people like me that while still having them on computer would love to have super nice hd ones built for tv. I don't know if ill watch the, a ton but I will watch them again. Probably when I get the BR to be honest and especially the comic-con one since I was there for that. I expect the EE to have even more but I'm glad to get these with the TE.

I go back and watch some of the lotr stuff and especially the docs on the EE once in a while just to go back for the sole reason I love the material. I expect I'll do that with The Hobbit.

Besides being able to watch AUJ multiple times (which unlike FOTR I was only able to see once in the theater), I found that the theatrical edition cases made excellent travel cases for the much larger EE releases.

I am hoping the EE will change the flow of the film adding in more character moments which they felt had to be cut for the super important action scenes like the stone giants , lol.

Not to mention all the extra stuff the EE has that this wont.

However, the average is 120 days so its not terribly early as far as that goes. Plus you have a EE version later in the year so you've got to have space between all three.
