The Desolation of Smaug

1. Plotting of the Orcs/Goblins, Thorin & Co. head for Beorn's house.
2. Beorn!
3. Farewell to Beorn - edge of Mirkwood
4.
Gandalf's investigations of the Necromancer with Raddy, Beorn, Leggy/Tauriel (including a meeting of the FULL White Council)?
5. Thorin & Co. stalked through film by Fimbul the Hunter and Azog's forces
6. The whole Mirkwood passage, the river drama, the starvation, etc.
7. The Spiders, Dwarves captured, introduction of wood-elves culture, and Legolas, Thranduil and Tauriel.
8. Barrels out of Bond.
9. Arrival to Laketown
10. Introduction of Laketown culture and the Master, Bard and Alfrid.
11. Farewell to Laketown, into the "desolation"
12. The Battle of Dol Guldur, possibly final confrontation between Thorin & Co. and Fimbul's Orcs?

There and Back Again

1. Scouting the Lonely Mountain, eventually finding the secret entrance.
2. Bilbo seeing Smaug for the first time, stealing a cup/Smaug's wrath
3. Aftermath of Dol Guldur battle
4. Bilbo's second meeting in which he is spotted and has a long conversation with Smaug.
5. Smaug leaving the Mountain.
6. Bilbo & dwarves start going through all the treasure and exploring the mountain.
7. Smaug attacking Laketown, Smaug dies
8. Laketown refugees
9. The gathering storm, mobilizing Lakemen/Wood Elves/Orcs
10. Siege of the Mountain, a thief in the night
11. Battle of Five Armies
12. Aftermath of Battle, Thorin's Funeral, Refounding of Dale, Balin departs for Moria, hint of Sauron returning to/heading for Mordor
13. Other bridge elements concerning LotR (a touch the Hunt for Gollum, some Rangers guarding the Shire ETC?)
14. Bilbo's Back Again, auction outside Bagend, possible adoption of young Frodo/epilogue

IMO, Film 1 revolves primarily around setting out and surviving the Misty Mountains; it seems Film 2 around Mirkwood, Laketown and the Necromancer; and Film 3 around Smaug and the Battle of Five Armies. Of course, we don't know for sure what will land where until at least Late Summer/Early Fall of next year. Wink

My guess: Desolation of Smaug "where the action is" macfalk Send a private message to macfalk Oct 5 2012, 4:34pm
    And no so much action afterwards ! Ffnir Send a private message to Ffnir Oct 5 2012, 5:00pm
        The *spoilers* Kangi Ska Send a private message to Kangi Ska Oct 5 2012, 5:08pm
            Yeah it's a big probability Ffnir Send a private message to Ffnir Oct 5 2012, 5:23pm
            I don't think so There&ThereAgain Send a private message to There&ThereAgain Oct 5 2012, 5:50pm

        Not so much action? ryanw8 Send a private message to ryanw8 Oct 5 2012, 5:11pm
            Smaug must be in film 2, his name is in the title Ffnir Send a private message to Ffnir Oct 5 2012, 5:15pm
    Agreed DoS will have much more going on than AUJ...however, based on what we know, I'd see something more akin to this unfolding: Captain Salt Send a private message to Captain Salt Oct 5 2012, 5:07pm
        I really think you are loading a bit too much on "There and Back Again". Kangi Ska Send a private message to Kangi Ska Oct 5 2012, 5:16pm
            I thought so as well until recently... Captain Salt Send a private message to Captain Salt Oct 5 2012, 5:26pm
            Not necessarily Shelob'sAppetite Send a private message to Shelob'sAppetite Oct 5 2012, 10:57pm
                You know that LotR was structured on climaxes. I don't expect these to be different GoodGuyA Send a private message to GoodGuyA Oct 6 2012, 4:15am
                I agree redgiraffe Send a private message to redgiraffe Oct 8 2012, 10:52am
        No Smaug in Desolation of Smaug ? Ffnir Send a private message to Ffnir Oct 5 2012, 5:27pm
            Yes, it is a conundrum... Captain Salt Send a private message to Captain Salt Oct 5 2012, 5:33pm
                I like your plot development redgiraffe Send a private message to redgiraffe Oct 8 2012, 10:18am
        This looks pretty good to me! Buchanicus Send a private message to Buchanicus Oct 5 2012, 10:17pm
    It all comes down to the Dol Guldur subplot DanielLB Send a private message to DanielLB Oct 5 2012, 5:33pm
        Agreed Barrels out of Bond would have been/could be a great climatic sequence. // Captain Salt Send a private message to Captain Salt Oct 5 2012, 5:42pm
            personally it seemed a little lame There&ThereAgain Send a private message to There&ThereAgain Oct 5 2012, 6:06pm
                Agreed Eye's on Guard Send a private message to Eye's on Guard Oct 5 2012, 9:48pm

            The only problem with the climax of DOS being the barrel escape is ... DanielLB Send a private message to DanielLB Oct 5 2012, 6:12pm
                Correct, I don't expect it to be the end of Film 2... Captain Salt Send a private message to Captain Salt Oct 5 2012, 6:18pm
                    Wait ! Ffnir Send a private message to Ffnir Oct 5 2012, 6:21pm
                        As said above, I don't think anyone's suggesting an entire movie set in Mirkwood. // Captain Salt Send a private message to Captain Salt Oct 5 2012, 7:08pm
                            Oh right, I hadn't read the title of your post. Sorry ! // Ffnir Send a private message to Ffnir Oct 5 2012, 7:30pm

            I think that people will expect it burgahobbit Send a private message to burgahobbit Oct 8 2012, 7:02pm
    My bet : we meet Smaug in TDOS and he dies in film 3. Lacrimae Rerum Send a private message to Lacrimae Rerum Oct 5 2012, 7:01pm
        This is what I think as well. Carne Send a private message to Carne Oct 5 2012, 10:41pm

        I agree. Fardragon Send a private message to Fardragon Oct 6 2012, 8:10am
            It works both ways though DanielLB Send a private message to DanielLB Oct 6 2012, 8:17am
                There is lots to fit into DoS though Fardragon Send a private message to Fardragon Oct 6 2012, 8:33am
                    Oh, I agree about that DanielLB Send a private message to DanielLB Oct 6 2012, 8:40am
                        It's certainly problamatic Fardragon Send a private message to Fardragon Oct 6 2012, 8:44am
                            I could probably accept that DanielLB Send a private message to DanielLB Oct 6 2012, 8:47am

                                    I'm sure is was a worry for PJ, yes. Fardragon Send a private message to Fardragon Oct 6 2012, 9:15am

                                                        I don't agree redgiraffe Send a private message to redgiraffe Oct 8 2012, 11:19am

    I agree, but I think they will leave Smaugs death for film 3 elostirion74 Send a private message to elostirion74 Oct 5 2012, 7:28pm
    Of course, it is possible even Jackson don't when DOS will end. // Ffnir Send a private message to Ffnir Oct 5 2012, 10:58pm
