Tol Eressea

Well, when a film has a principal cast of fifteen very busy people, I would imagine that would cause issues with making sure everyone could get together for three hours to watch and talk.

Not only that, but by the time everyone mentions their thoughts on a specific scene, you will already be two scenes ahead!

Honestly, perhaps they didn't include the cast commentary because the principal cast is just too darn big.

Plus, like I mentioned just above, several of the actors are now on other projects, so why would they spend the time and money to fly halfway around the world (for most of them), risk jet lag, and delay their other projects simply to watch a three hour movie and fight the other fourteen (or fifteen, if PJ is also with them) for the chance to speak?

I would imagine it would honestly be like trying to watch a film with fifteen/sixteen inquisitive first graders and having to pause every two seconds so someone can ask their question or say their mind. Not saying the actors are immature or anything, but two sentences from each person would add up to taking the entire scene if not more on many points.

Not only would it likely drive the cast nuts, but as viewers it would likely drive us nuts to because we would miss whatever they were talking about in order to catch both the dialogue in the film and what the actors have to say about it.
