I want to see Thrain in there and he's been confirmed by Philippa to be in the extended cut.


Where does Philippa confirm that?

So I have to ask: Why we didn't see Thráin, Thorin Oakenshield's father, give Gandalf the map and key?


Ah, yes. That's going to be in the extended cut of the second film. In the end, it became about length and time and pace, and yeah, it's a very important part of the storytelling, but really, that's part of the brutality of filmmaking. As much as it informs Thorin's story, you're bringing in yet another character that you have to explain. We did actually shoot it. But Peter made the decision that this stuff is going to work best in the extended cut.

Other stuff about extended edition:


What were the hardest calls to make about what to add and what to cut?


It is like killing your babies, yeah. It's hard when there's stuff that's in the book that you always imagined you're going to do, and you actually find, "Ah, no. We can't." Like Bombur falling in the river. That will probably be another extra. The elves feasting was an easy one to cut. I think if we'd made The Hobbit first, we probably would have had elves feasting. But to me, it was too A Midsummer Night's Dream. It would have felt fairy.

Concerning a scene Peter released several months... [In reply to] Can't Post

There was a scene Peter released several months ago where Gandalf has a run in with Radagast (this is not a friendly place to be) in the high fells, where they discover the tombs of the nine broken from the inside. Is this scene still in DOS or has it been cut?

Thank you for that – most interesting [In reply to] Can't Post

I only skimmed through it because I'm not seeing it until Friday (UK).

From the sound of it there may not be enough for my liking about Beorn and Thranduil, both iconic and interesting characters for me…

So... [In reply to] Can't Post

if you don't mind my asking... how much Radagast do we get this time round? I hear he doesn't have a huge part to play, but any approximations would be appreciated. And are there any silly moments with him like the stick insect gag in AUJ?

It is somewhat shorter [In reply to] Can't Post

with like 10 seconds, and it made more sense (to me) that Radagast was summoned there by Gandalf and that is why Radagast asks "Why am I here?"
He didn't mean to say how he had appeared there, but more like why Gandalf had summoned him there!

That part was confusing to me when the scene was shown earlier this year, but when watching the movie it made sense immediately!

He's in the movie for, I'd say, 3 minutes, tops, just Dol Guldur stuff, so no, no silly gags, or anything.

No silly Radagast gags - that's a big relief! :)
