Watch: Exclusive unseen clip from The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey


Warner Brothers has released an exclusive unseen clip from The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.

The scene, which was not shown in the original cut, sees elf lord Elrond confront Bilbo Baggins at his Rivendell retreat.

Bilbo, played by Sherlock and The Office star Martin Freeman, is unsure whether to carry on with the quest to recover the dwarves’ gold, and Elrond is not forthcoming in helping him to make up his mind.

The unseen footage has been released as part of a special extended edition DVD of the film, which includes 13 minutes of extra film footage.

The DVD comes with almost nine hours of new special features, with audio commentary from director and screenwriter Peter Jackson, as well as a documentary showing the chronological filming of the first Hobbit film.

The special edition is released in the UK on digital download on 22 October, and on Blu-ray and DVD on 4 November.

The second instalment The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug is out in cinemas on 13 December.
