And there’s also The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Extended Cut, which we’re in the process of finishing, with over 25 mins of new scenes, all scored with original music composed by Howard Shore.

As of right now, there's no release date for the Extended Cut but it seems likely that it will be out just in time for Christmas and the theatrical start of the third and final Hobbit film (which has also been retitled to The Battle of the Five Armies.
