Eight more minutes of emo vampires and musclebound werewolves are coming to Blu-ray in March.

In an early announcement to retailers, Lionsgate has revealed 'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1: Extended Edition' will be coming to Blu-ray on March 2.

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.

“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.”

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.99.
