        • I wonder where the first film will end. Mirkwood? Riddles In The Dark? Lake Town?

            • I forgot the second film takes place during that 60 year gap between The Hobbit & Fellowship. I wonder what the hell they have in store for us with that one.

                    Yeah, most definitly. Although I loved Fellowship, I just thought it went downhill from there. Perhaps it was Elijah Wood's casting. Nah, I just didn't dig it is all. One thing the films definitly maintained for me, was sheer beauty. The LOTR films are stunning to look at.

                      Agreed (on both of your statements, BuNgLe).

                      Also: possibilities for what'll be in the sequel: Frodo's birth/introduction, Bilbo's adventures while wandering, problems for the dwarves, Aragorn's wanderings, Gollum's journey from the Misty Mountains to Mordor and back, etc. Anything else come to mind?

                      • This thread went through so many ups & downs. First the announcement, then Jackon's directing it, then he's not, then he is, then the film might not be made at all for legal reasons, then it's being made but Jackson's not directing, then Raimi's directing, then Jackson's directing again, then Raimi, then Del Toro.

                        Thank god it's over

                          Seeing the Mines Of Moria being overtaken and the emergence of the Balrog would be awesome.

                            I was just reading the appendices and that's exactly what I think is going to happen.

                            I think Balin, Gandalf, and possibly Aragorn are going to be the center of the story, not Bilbo. About 7 years after Bilbo returns from his adventure in The Hobbit, Gandalf and Balin come to visit him. This could be the set up where they reminisce about their adventure. Balin could then announce that he is going back to The Lonely Mountain and offer an invitation for Bilbo and Gandalf to join him. Bilbo may or may not decline (though I don't think he'd go the entire way if he did go) but Gandalf would tag along.

                            After arriving at The Lonely Mountain, Gandalf's and Balin's paths could split. Balin would end up staying at TLM (possibly going on a local adventure). Gandalf would leave from there and meet Aragorn, the two becoming friends. There would also be meetings of the White Council and we can see Saruman's fall. Aragorn, meanwhile, will be off doing some other adventures as well as meeting Arwen.

                            In the end, Balin leaves TLM and heads to Moria. The Balrog and numerous orcs attack (the climactic battle) while, at the same time, Gandalf hears rumors of ill-doings under the mountains. He arrives too late; the dwarves are dead, though the orcs and Balrog are no longer around (this would explain his apprehension about going through the Mines in Fellowship).

                            OR

                            He means to go but has more pressing issues (and, after all, he isn't sure anything bad is happening in Moria). Either way, they fill in the gaps and it ends with Gandalf telling Aragorn to be wary after hearing rumors from the Council. We see Saruman plotting with Sauron in the palantir. Bad omens, bad omens, more bad omens. In the end Gandalf returns to Hobbiton to speak with Bilbo (for whatever reason -- maybe to tell Bilbo of Balin's death, maybe not).

                            The movie ends with Bilbo talking, saying, as Frodo walks into the room (the first time we'll have ever seen him or even heard mention of him, chronologically. this would show Gandalf knowing about Frodo and so introducing him to us like he's an old character) "I was just telling Frodo how we need to have a grand party, seeing as we share the same birthday and all. This very month as is..."

                            That way the 2nd movie will lead right up to the beginning of Fellowship and introduce Frodo. They should also do something to make Frodo's appearance a foreshadowing of something good, seeing as the movie would end on a very low not with the destruction of Moria and Saurman/Sauron's plotting.

                            Obviously this is just one possible rough outline and PJ/FW/PB/GDT would have to add their own touches and smooth it out but does anyone think it's doable?

                            • Damn this is some good news. I can't wait for these movies. I love the movies, love the books. I'm actually torn between wanting Del Toro to do the Hobbit movies first and doing At the Mountains of Madness first!! Either way, it's an epic win.

                              I haven't read all of the Silmarillion, but that would make a cool feature in and of itself. Someone on AICN years ago suggested that it would make a good animated feature. I have tried to read it all before but I got h alfway through before I got bogged down. I tried to pick it up again last night, starting where I left off, but it's been a couple years, and I had forgotten everything prety much that I had read. So I will have to start over again one day.
