I don't think it would be because it was too close to JRR Tolkien's vision [In reply to] Can't Post

I think its more the fact that the material contained within UT is off limits and without that Jackson couldn't "EXPAND" the Hobbit into what he is expanding it into. Jackson is adapting the Hobbit not "the Quest for Erobor", Tolkien sold the rights to LOTR and the Hobbit so IMO that's what Jackson should stick to. Nothing more... Not saying I don't want more middle earth, I do, but I want the stories to at least follow the books they have permission to use, as closely as possible with minor tweaking to make them work on film. Not go off on some wild, made up tangent because you think it would look cool, even though it goes against Tolkien's writings. Or just make up things taking the story Tolkien wrote out of context. Tolkien didn't make the ring in the Hobbit into the "one ring" for a reason even after his attempted rewrite. To give the reader something to look forward to in LOTR. The same IMO should be done in the film.

I personally can see the Tolkien estate looking closely at what is shown in these films and honestly if Jackson steps over the line of the material he is allowed to use I hope the Tolkien estate gets what is owed to them. After all if it weren't for JRR Tolkien these stories that Jackson is portraying wouldn't even exist.Wink
