Bilbo meets Elrond in new deleted scene from The Hobbit: watch now

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey has released a brand new deleted scene, as well as announcing a few new details about the forthcoming release of the extended DVD and Blu-ray.

The new cut of the film will be 13 minutes longer, with the package also containing nearly nine hours of extra features.

Meanwhile, the new clip features Bilbo meeting Elrond at Rivendell, a scene soon to be restored to the longer edition of the film.

Take a look at the new scene, below…

Just a taster of what we can expect from the Blu-ray, then. And if the extras are half as involving as those included with the extended Lord Of The Rings films, we should be in for a treat.

Directed by Peter Jackson and co-starring Martin Freeman, Ian McKellen and Richard Armitage, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Extended Edition will be available to buy in the UK on 4 November 2013.
