Continuation of the scene from 14:47 / 16:26-20:56

During his last reply to Bilbo Gandalf had made a hand movement which is taken as a signal by Bofur: "There it is. Go. Go."
The first dwarves come out much to Beorn's surprise, and introduce themselves: "Dwalin and Balin."
Gandalf: "And I must confess that, uh, several of our group are, in fact, Dwarves."
Beorn: "Do you call two 'several'?"
Gandalf: "Well, uh, now you put it that way... Yes, there could be more than two."
The next dwarves come out and Gandalf goes on, stuttering: "Oh, and here are some more of our, uh, happy troop."
Beorn: "And do you call six a 'troop'? What are you, a traveling circus?"
More dwarves come out at Bofur's sign; "Dori and Ori at your service."
Beorn: "I don't want your service."
Gandalf is comforted: "Absolutely understandable."
More dwarves: "Oh, Fili and Kili. I'd quite forgotten. Yes. Oh, yes, and Nori, Bofur, Bifur and Bombur."
Beorn: "Is that it? Are there any more?"
Thorin shows himself and Beorn seems to recognize him.

Total length 269,9 sec (= 4:30 min)

16:01-16:08 / 22:10

A short bit of Beorn's speech at the table has been removed from the Extended Edition (we hear it during a shot of Gandalf) "There is an alliance between the Orcs of Moria and the Necromancer in Dol Guldur."

+ 6,5 sec

Alternative scene
16:10-16:11 / 22:12-22:13

The sentence following directly after that, "I would not venture there except in great need" appears in both versions However, only the Theatrical Edition cuts back to Beorn at the end. The Extended Edition stays on the dwarves.

No time difference

17:17 / 23:20-25:43

Beorn talks to Gandalf some more in the wood. They speak of the animosity between the orcs and the dwarves, so the removal of a similar comment from an earlier scene makes sense. Here we also see a flashback to the funeral of the Nazgul leader.

Beorn: "You will leave my ponies before you enter the forest."
Gandalf: "Oh, you have my word. We're being watched."
Beorn: "Yes. The Orcs will not give up. They will hunt the Dwarves until they see them destroyed."
Gandalf: "Why now? What has made the Defiler crawl from his hole?"
Beorn: "There is an alliance between the Orcs of Moria and the sorcerer in Dol Guldur."
Gandalf: "Are you sure of this?"
Beorn: "Packs have been seen gathering there. Each day, more and more come."
Gandalf: "What do you know of this sorcerer? The one they call the Necromancer."
Beorn: "I know he is not what he seems. Fell things are drawn to his power. Azog pays homage to him."
Thorin calls from behind: "Gandalf. Time is wasting."
Beorn holds him back: "There is more. Not long past, word spread the dead had been seen walking near the High Fells of Rhudaur."
Gandalf: "The dead?"
Beorn: "Is it true? Are there tombs in those mountains?"

We hear the voice of Galadriel, as Gandalf imagines the funeral of the Witch-King of Angmar; "When Angmar fell, the Men of the North took his body and all that he possessed and sealed it within the High Fells of Rhudaur. Deep within the rock, they buried him. In a tomb so dark it would never come to light."
Gandalf answers to Beorn: "Yes. Yes, there are tombs up there."
Beorn: "I remember a time when a great evil ruled these lands. One powerful enough to raise the dead. If that enemy has returned to Middle-earth I would have you tell me."
Gandalf: "Saruman the White says it's not possible. The enemy was destroyed and will never return."
Beorn: "And what does Gandalf the Grey say?"
Gandalf looks thoughtful.
Beorn: "Go now. While you have the light. Your hunters are not far behind."

The last part (from "Go now" on) has been put over a following shot of Gandalf getting on his horse in the Theatrical Edition.

Gandalf gives more tips to Bilbo: "There is a stream in the woods that carries a dark enchantment. Do not touch the water. Cross only by the stone bridge."

22:19-22:39 / 30:53

A part of the dwarves' journey through the wood has been removed.

Thorin to Nori who has stopped: "Keep moving. Nori, why have we stopped?"
Nori: "The path, it's disappeared."
Dwalin: "What's going on?"
Oin: "We've lost the path!"
Thorin: "Find it. All of you, look. Look for the path!"
A camera reveals an impenetrable forest.

+ 20,5 sec

22:46 / 30:59-36:42

Here is a longer extension: in the Extended Edition the Company finds the bridge mentioned by Gandalf; however, it is impassable. There are some adventurous moments and small gags with the other dwarves. The hallucinogenic air of Mirkwood is getting to the dwarves. After that, Bilbo starts playing with a spider web, sending vibrations through the forest.

Somebody says in a wide shot: "We found the bridge."
Bofur: "We could try and swim it."
Thorin: "Didn't you hear what Gandalf said? A dark magic lies upon this forest. The waters of this stream are enchanted."
Bofur: "Doesn't look very enchanting to me."
Thorin: "We must find another way across."
Bilbo looks hypnotized by the water, and Kili says: "These vines look strong enough."
Thorin: "Kili! We send the lightest first."
Bilbo sees that he is meant and starts climbing: "It's all right. Can't see any problem."
Then he nearly loses his hold and hangs above the water upside down: "There's one. Everything's...fine."
After having made it across, he states: "Something is not right. This is not right at all."
His "Stay where you are!" remains unheard, as the others have already started climbing. Thorin makes it safely across, but Bombur falls asleep.
