The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Blu-Ray and DVD Release Date
revealed the covers and release date of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey on Blu-ray and DVD as March 19th with Digital Download available on March 12th. The extended edition is expected to be released in time for Christmas. The movie will come as 3-disc Blu-Ray Combo Pack (BR, DVD, Ultraviolet download), 5-disc Blu-ray 3D Combo Pack (BR 3D, BR, DVD, Ultraviolet) and 2-disc DVD Special Edition. As a bonus, people with the Ultraviolet code will be able to view a live event on March 24th at 3:00PM hosted by Peter Jackson who give a first look at The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug trailer. No details on what the delay will be before its released to general public online. All sets will have the production videos but no additional information on what the other special features might be. Just in case wondering this will be the 24FPS version of the movie simply because 48FPS playback tech for home entertainment is not (yet) available.
