Each and every one of these production videos has me even more encouraged - even psyched - for the upcoming film(s)!

I liked how Ian McKellen could name all the Dwarves!

Still don't understand why it's two movies. Okay I know it's to make more money but artistically it's not a good idea. After all the time wasted in the LoTR trilogy with lingering close-ups and soaring music, I have a bad feeling about this.

Lingering close-ups and soaring music? I surely hope so!

Re: THE HOBBIT (2012/2013): News, Rumors, Pics Till Release

They are adding scenes that were left implied (or invented post hoc to explain why Gandalf disappeared). Plus, there were more action scenes in the Hobbit and less description. If the movies are a touch shorter than Return of the King, it might make sense as two movies. If all this info could have been fit into a RotK length movie, maybe one would have been appropriate.

I'm willing to wait and see. The titles alone give me hope that they know what they're doing.

I'm going to guess that neither movie will be three hours long like the theatrical editions of LOTR were (except for ROTK, which was even longer). I also think that An Unexpected Journey will end sometime shortly after the Company escapes from Goblin-town and Bilbo steals the Ring from Gollum, and then There and Back Again will cover the Company's adventures in Mirkwood, Lake-town, and the Lonely Mountain. Again, though, that's just a guess on my part.

Re: THE HOBBIT (2012/2013): News, Rumors, Pics Till Release

I'd put the split just as the Company gets its first view of the Lonely Mountain. That'd come right after the Barrels Out of Bond sequence (which I hear is being reworked to be more like an action-packed prison break). Also coinciding with that sequence is the confrontation between the White Council and the Necromancer. Both sequences (the prison break and the confrontation) would make for a natural climax to An Unexpected Journey.

Question... how will they handle the Saruman/White Council stuff if Christopher Lee is doing minimal, off-location filming? If Chris Lee couldn't get to New Zealand, wouldn't they have been better off getting a new actor? the part of Saruman seems too big in the extended Hobbit to just let Lee do minimal work. or are they gonna go nuts with the green screen and insert senor Lee where needed?

For all we know, the necessary cast is flying to to England to film with Lee. They already spent the money to build copies of the sets there, so why not?

That gave me a big smile in the third production diary.
