No evidence of the Barrow Wights as such... [In reply to] Can't Post

But we know AUJ is over 160 minutes long-that suggests some padding between the shire and trollhills (even with the eagles and Goblin town it would be a bit action light otherwise), we also know that Sylvester Mcoy (Radagast) shot some sequences with the dwarves and Bilbo (which seems a bit strange if Radagast is tied up soley in the Dol Goldur stroyline...and I do get a definite 'Bombadil' oddness aura off Radgast) and that whole 'Dunedain tomb raiding' sequence is in the film- which smacks of an oppurtunity to sneak the barrow wights in-perhaps the barrowights are the ringwraiths not yet at full power?-aren't their spirits bound to the one ring and suaron's power?- i.e the Barrow Wights could be the Nazgul on 'power saving' mode?. I can't remember who posted it but supposedly there was a list of locations featuring in the Hobbit films, and the weather hills and Barrow Downs were both listed (though that may be my mind playing tricks on me).

I personally don't want to see them in the hobbit (it is irrelevant to the story, I'd much rather see a film closer to the book's tone than that of the LOTR film trilogy, and to me a little insulting to cut and paste Tolkien's work from book to book- I doubt he would have approved) but as this will be PJ's last oppurtunity to do Tolkien (hopefully...I DO NOT want to see the Sillmarillion adapated...but that's another story) and by his own admission he's incapable of making short films...I wouldn't be surprised to see them in it.

So there you have it...no real evidence as of yet...

‘As they came to the gates Cirdan the Shipwright came forth to greet them. Very tall he was, and his beard was long, and we was grey and old, save that his eyes were keen as stars; and he looked at them and bowed, and said ‘All is now ready.’

Perhaps the most fascinating Individual in Middle Earth
