I wouldn't hold out much hope on either front...

"I do hope that the return journey is not given short shrift just so we can see more action (although I'm completely expecting that to be the case)."

Well, yes. But then such a choice would be entirely understandable, wouldn't it, considering the general reaction to RotK's "multiple" endings and the fact that, well, movies just aren't structured with such enormous, elongated codas.

"And as I've made known on more than one occasion, I'm concerned that Jackson might overplay the scale of the Battle of Five Armies itself just because it's his last hurrah in Middle-earth. The Battle of Five Armies was not the biggest battle of the Third Age, and it should not be portrayed as such."

What with 3D, 4K, 48fps, IMAX, a decade of accolades and limitless funds behind him, you can bet your bottom dollar that the BoFA is going to blow everything else out of water. Or at least try to...

So, yes, I (and many others, I suspect) share your concerns Unsure

"I have walked there sometimes, beyond the forest and up into the night. I have seen the world fall away and the white light of forever fill the air."
