I understand that. And I love the appendices. [In reply to] Can't Post

But I don't think that everything in them is needed to tell this story. And I don't think that they couldn't have given us two beautiful films using some of the material.

Right now, I'm just nervous about how this will turn out. I'm sure I'll love the films, but what's the point of speculation if you can't freak out a little? Wink
