Wow! Is it free-beer night at Barli? Or just Bilbo opening the door to a tumble of dwarves?

I leave for a few hours and come back to a HIVE! So now we can move on with TH3 and stop fretting about the DOS EE's length. And let's not forget: thanks to the Grey Pilgrim for breaking this, even before it got on the TORn homepage. Great work!

'And so: "The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies" it is.'
The "the" in the new title implies there are only 5 armies, doesn't it? To avoid confusion around these parts, BotFA=TH3: The movie coming out this December, BoFA=teh event?

The movie is pretty much made at the this point. In fact it was probably decided with the pickups last year. So I agree with those who believe the title is marketing-directed, not story or story alteration.

'As Professor Tolkien intended, “There and Back Again” encompasses Bilbo’s entire adventure, so don’t be surprised if you see it used on a future box-set of all three movies.'
Can't wait. The logic for the title change makes sense. But by box-set, what does it mean? Director's cut of the trilogy? More extras? Alternate retelling/editiion/plots?

'And there’s also The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Extended Cut, which we’re in the process of finishing, with over 25 mins of new scenes, all scored with original music composed by Howard Shore.'
I'm holding PJ to that "over 25mins", especially the "over" bit please.

Still, after the meagre 13 we got for AUJ I am cautiously optimistic about getting the good stuff. Except for the truly obvious bits in that EE, I could barely discern where the extensions were, unlike the LotR EEs. Mad And my sis kept asking me if we're sure we got the right one.

I want the character stuff, and please no extensions for that she-elf or that 3-sided relationship thingy unless it's necessary!

'It’ll be a fun year!'
So much to look forward to!

Better get your last word in before the mods lock this Precious, folks!Tongue

Fan of both books and movies. Oh, and it seems I have severely misnamed myself... for the moment.
