It has to be the trolls, chronologically speaking.
Yeah and it fits with the stone cauldron and the dwarves being tied up. I just don't like the appearance of them but the lighting is pretty poor to properly judge.
I love how this thing is basically a summary of the first movie. I found a link (via TheOneRing.net) to a much larger version. Check it out. It's almost 9000 pixels wide.
They look a lot less human than expected. I only noticed the closer one, and I though it was some kind of cat or something. I didn't even think of the Trolls.
And now there's talk of a possible trilogy, I don't know if I like that idea or not.
^The more Peter Jackson-Middle Earth films, the better if you ask me.
How can they do a trilogy? Hasn't this already been written and/or filmed? Or are we talking another Middle Earth trilogy?
Interesting. They should just film it and call it "Appendix." A whole new movie of random Middle Earth adventures!
Sounds something like the Silmarillion kinda.
Well, they can film that, too!
No, they can't film The Silmarillion; the Tolkien Estate hasn't sold the film rights to it and, so long as CJRT is alive, isn't likely to.
So maybe then this extra "Hobbit" movie can be a Hobbit movie in name only?
A back door way of filming some of that material? Or we don't want itchy lawyers dancing on the doorstep?
Plus there's an awful lot of stuff from LoTR that they could easily re-write to not use characters from that story if they couldn't, or didn't want to, use those actors.
Would a trilogy of largely unrelated movies work commercially, though? Or would Tolkien geekdom be big enough to make them a success?
"The Hobbit and Beyond"
RE: Silmarillion and other non-filmed LOTR material
I'm thinking most likely not. However if budgets could be reduced while maintaining quality it stands a better chance imo.
I still want to see them do a movie about Aragorn in his younger days. Base it around his time in Gondor as Thorongil, his rivalry with Denethor, and his assault on the Corsairs of Umbar. That could be a fun movie.
Where does this information come from? I don't recall it in the books.
It's from the Appendices.
