The middle entry in Peter Jackson's 'The Hobbit Trilogy'; 'The Desolation of Smaug' might have already hit Blu-ray back in April, but that hasn't stopped Warner Bros Home Entertainment from announcing an even longer extended cut of the film on 3D and 2D Blu-ray, for release later this year.
Coming to disc on November 12, the film has been extended by a full 25 minutes (for a total run time of 192 minutes) and comes with over nine hours of bonus features, including a Peter Jackson audio commentary, copious behind the scenes documentaries and featurettes, along with a copy of the film in the portable UltraViolet format.
The final entry in the saga, the newly renamed 'The Battle of Five Armies', which just released it's first theatrical teaser trailer, will be released in December 2014.
