The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1Twilight fans rejoice! There’s more of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 to love. Yep, 8 minutes more. Eight whole minutes.

In what appears to be a way of squeezing out more of fans’ money, Summit’s The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 Extended Edition offers eight minutes of footage not previously released before and added back in by director Bill Condon.

Condon also recorded a commentary track for the extended version of the film, delving deeper into the old and new scenes with Bella (Kristen Stewart, Snow White and the Huntsman), Edward (Robert Pattinson, Cosmopolis) and Jacob (Taylor Lautner, Abduction).

The 124-minute extended edition is unrated, but don’t expect anything too shocking. The scenes were created for the original PG-13 movie.

The Blu-ray and DVD also offer a digital copy of the film and instant streaming via UltraViolet.

The original DVD and Blu-ray of Breaking Dawn: Part 1 was released in February 2012.

Check out the trailer for the extended edition:
