It is most likely unnecessary to say much about the Twilight-Franchise. Everybody should know it - whether they like it or not. For those who are fans of the story about Edward Cullen and Bella Swan Lionsgate will release the first three movies in one set that includes a new extended version.
Thus, the second part New Moon includes almost 7.5 minutes of additional footage which, however, does not really offer anything new and was already included in the deleted scenes feature of the old DVDs and Blu-rays. Thus, there are a few new plot scenes which are rather something nice to have than mandatory. They make the movie neither better nor worse - just longer. Thus, New Moon stays the weakest movie of the series.
This is a comparison between the Theatrical Version and the Extended Edition, both released by Summit/Lionsgate.
There are 18 differences:
13 additional scenes/shots in the Extended Edition
5 scenes with alternative/alternative footage
The Extended Edition is 439.51 seconds (~ 7:20 minutes) longer than the Theatrical Version.
7:47 minutes / 7:47 minutes
The conversation between Bella and Edward who walk along the school's corridor was extended. The two of them talk about Jacob. Bella explains to her boyfriend that Jacob is just a friend.
