Twilight Saga Breaking Dawn Extended Cut

Summit Entertainment announced yesterday that a new Blu-ray Disc of Twilight Saga Breaking Dawn will be released in March that will include 8 minutes of completely new footage. If you recall, there were a lot of parts of the book that were edited out of the movie for the sake of time. Some of those will be extended in the new version. Here are more details from the official press release:

Santa Monica, CA (January 7, 2013) – Here is the chance to discover even more of the blockbuster film when The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 Extended Edition, featuring eight minutes of never-before-seen footage, debuts only on Blu-ray Disc (plus Digital Copy and UV), DVD (plus Digital Copy and UV) and Digital Download on Saturday March 2nd from Summit Entertainment, a LIONSGATE company. Now with eight minutes of new and extended scenes added back into the film by Director Bill Condon, along with his optional audio commentary, fans can delve deeper into the epic series they adore. Experience the timeless romance and drama in a whole new way when The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 Extended Edition, featuring the original theatrical version and the all-new extended edition with optional audio commentary from the director, arrives on Blu-ray Disc and DVD for the suggested retail price of $29.99 and $22.98, respectively.

“As Twilight series devotees know, there was a lot of ground to cover in adapting Breaking Dawn to the screen,” said Condon. “Between the wedding, the honeymoon, the birth, and everything in between, naturally there were things that didn’t make it into our final cut. But I wanted to make sure that for all the Twihards out there, there was a chance to see some of these cut scenes – several of which are fan favorites from the book.”

The Twilight Saga Breaking Dawn Part 1 Extended Edition goes on sale March 2, 2013.

Breaking Dawn 2 Teaser Trailer

By now most of you have probably seen the Twilight Breaking Dawn Part 2 teaser trailer that started airing at the Hunger Games release. The reaction in the crowd when I saw it was interesting. Everyone seemed to have been holding their breath through the entire 49 seconds and then freaked out when it was over. Overwhelmingly the result was “it was too short!!”

We’ve included the teaser trailer below. What do you think? Is it enough to get you excited about the final Twilight movie in November? Should they have showed more characters? Or was it just right considering we still have over half a year for the movie to be built up?

Twilight Breaking Dawn party supplies are now available from Celebrate Express! The Deluxe Party pack for 8 includes invitations, dinner plates, take home cups, forks, spoons, napkins, tablecover, centerpiece, foil balloon, regular balloons, curling ribbon, crepe paper rolls, and cake candles.

If that is too much for you, you can also buy the pieces individually. The invitations, dinner plates, cups, napkins, tablecover, and centerpiece are all officially licensed Twilight products with the images of Edward, Jacob, and Bella on them. You can also get lenticular cups specific to Jacob or Edward (those are the cups that kind of shine as you turn them to the side). The best deal, however, is to buy the whole package together.

Order Breaking Dawn Shirts

With excitement building about the release of Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, we are seeing a lot of new Breaking Dawn shirts being created on CafePress. What I love about CafePress for Twilight shirts in particular is that you can make them say just about anything and in almost any size and color. These aren’t the typical “fan” shirts with pictures of the movie characters on front of them. Instead, they are tailored more to your personality.

If you have read the book (and you know you have at least once!), you know what kind of things would make perfect Breaking Dawn shirts. For example, references to being “Imprinted” and “Isle Esme.” Now is also a good time to get shirts with the date 11-18-11 on them (the opening of the movie in the United States).

Below are a few of our favorites:

(“Why Am I Covered In Feathers” Love it!!)

(A Twilight maternity shirt!)

Twilight Books for Less Than a Dollar

As I’m sure you have noticed, the Twilight Saga books are not cheap. However, if you are an avid reader you can get them for less than a dollar each if you join the Doubleday Book Club.

What’s really awesome is that they not only have Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn but they also have the Twilight: Complete Illustrated Movie Companion and New Moon: Complete Illustrated Movie Companion. So you could get either of those for less than a dollar as well. They also have the unofficial Twilight Companion.

Right now they are running a special where you can get 4 books for 99 cents plus a free book. You just have to sign up to buy 4 more books at their prices (which are not bad). They have related books like Harry Potter, The Host, and the Sookie Stackhouse novels. Click here to check out the special deal and see how you can get a Twilight book free!

Twilight Books and Music Cheap at Half.com

Some of you have posted in the comments that you would love to get your hands on the Twilight books and music but cannot afford to pay full price. Getting on the lists at libraries doesn’t help because the lists are so long. I’ve been getting the Harry Potter books at my local Half Price Bookstore, but the Twilight books are always sold out. So I found a good alternative–Half.com! It’s an ebay-owned company, so it is totally legitimate.

Twilight the book sells starting at $3.70 used. For that price, you could get the entire Twilight Saga for about $15! They also carry the Twilight audiobooks as well as the Twilight movie soundtrack. You can even get Twilight: The Complete Illustrated Movie Companion for a bargain.

So if you are looking for any of the Twilight books, audiobooks, or movies cheap and don’t mind getting them used, click here to see the selection at Half.com.
