If I recall correctly, [In reply to] Can't Post

Saruman starts shouting about 'Radagast the Fool! Radagast the Simple! Radagast Bird-tamer!' when Gandalf mentions Radagast to Saruman during their conversation in Orthanc in FotR (book). So there is some strange sort of correlation there.

I hope not. [In reply to] Can't Post

Why taint the films with a permanent reminder of something that ought never have happened? Fortunately, I don't think that sort of petty revenge is PJ's style.

"Of all faces those of our familiares are the ones both most difficult to play fantastic tricks with, and most difficult really to see with fresh attention. They have become like the things which once attracted us by their glitter, or their colour, or their shape, and we laid hands on them, and then locked them in our hoard, acquired them, and acquiring ceased to look at them.
Creative fantasy, because it is mainly trying to do something else [make something new], may open your hoard and let all the locked things fly away like cage-birds. The gems all turn into flowers or flames, and you will be warned that all you had (or knew) was dangerous and potent, not really effectively chained, free and wild; no more yours than they were you."

Lost Radagast [In reply to] Can't Post

If the Istari Radagast is introduced to the story in these two films, I have a strong suspicion he will not make it out alive. In other words, I think it will be a tidier story if he dies rather than wanders off and goes native never to be mentioned in PJ:LOTR. A likely victim in service to foreshadow of Saruman's LOTR betrayal.

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

...they could show Radagast with lots of moths flying around him and nestling in his hands and such. Then in the scene where the eagles rescue the travellers from the wargs, a moth could appear heralding the arrival of the eagles, the implication being that the eagles were sent by Radagast. Hopefully this would add new meaning to the scene where Gandalf is rescued from Orthanc in FotR, implying that Radagast is still around and helping from behind the scenes.

I'd completely forgotten about that, considering how it was only a brief cameo appearance. It would be nice if PJ could get the two actors back for supporting roles in the White Council scenes.

Me, too! [In reply to] Can't Post

There's a reason for my nick, after all Wink
Only this week found out that Elladan and Elrohir were in the first draft for LotR, but sadly were written out when it got revised Frown
While they weren't really in Imladris during the Council, I was quite disappointed that they never went to Rohan with the Rangers and instead the Elven army turned up. Oh well, on second thought - better they killed Haldir than my two favourite Peredhil! But I hope they will make up for the omission in LotR and include them somehow in TH. It doesn't need to be a huge part, but I want to see them!



I do not suffer from LotR obsession - I enjoy every minute of it.

Killing Radagast is a real possibility, [In reply to] Can't Post

though I hope they don't go with it. Saruman may have had something to do with the Blue Wizards' disappearance... and if his treachery is brewing even at this early stage, he might just bump off Radagast too. Or he could die facing the Necromancer. And Jackson has already killed off Haldir for dramatic reasons, so it wouldn't be too surprising for him to kill more characters for the same purpose.
