If you’re a Twilight fan, you might want to circle March 2nd on your calendars.  That’s because Summit is releasing an extended cut of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 on home video that weekend which includes eight minutes of new and extended scenes added back in by director Bill Condon.   He said in the press release:

“As Twilight series devotees know, there was a lot of ground to cover in adapting Breaking Dawn to the screen.  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.”

Hit the jump for the cover art, full press release, and a trailer for the extended edition.
