I don't know where it came from.

I'm sorry if this was posted before.

What are they doing? Trollshaw?

It's from the storybook, and yup, it's at the trollshaw... [In reply to] Can't Post

Though not sure why it appears to be day...the book mentions that Fili and Kili are guarding the ponies and notice that a few have gone missing, leading to the discovery of the stone trolls. You'd think stone trolls would be pretty unmissable by themselves, however. ;)

My Top 5 Wish List for "The Hobbit"
5. Legolas will surf down Smaug's neck
4. Bilbo will be revealed to a Robot
3. Naked PJ cameo as Ghan-Buri-Ghan
2. Use of not only 3D, but smell-o-vision, plus the inclusion of axes coming out of the seats and poking the audience when appropriate
1. Not only keep the claim that Thorin & Co. ran amok in Mirkwood "molesting people", but depict said incident in vivid detail!!!!!

Is that out today? [In reply to] Can't Post

Any other spoilers?

It does seem odd. Surely the Dwarves would hear the Trolls, and the Trolls would look for the owners of the ponies?

Really just about early entrance [In reply to] Can't Post

for the Orcs (tracking the Company from the Trollshaw onward), and Riddles in the Dark being concurrent with the Goblin King sequence.

But a bit more about the troll sequence: the book claims Bilbo sneaks into the Trolls' camp to untie the ponies, then decides to steal a knife from one of the Troll's belts. No mention of the purse(!!!!), but fear not, a lot is left out of the book we know will be in the film (such as the Raddy spider attack, the Morgul blade, and so on).

And agreed, I'm not sure this makes a lot of sense regarding the ponies...seems they've transposed the scene where they're stolen by the Goblins to the Trollshaw for some reason (perhaps because the Goblins have a more action-oriented into)?

And oh yes, supposedly Gandy remains behind in Rivendell [In reply to] Can't Post

for the meeting of the White Council, while the others press on to the Misty Mountains (he catches up with them in time to slay the Goblin King). But haven't we seen evidence to the contrary - that Gandy is present with the Company before they're captured by Goblins?

Maybe it's a talking knife? [In reply to] Can't Post

Take heart, it's not late for a petition! ;)

And BTW, another little tidbit: just saw in the visual dictionary that Celebrian is mentioned as being "married to Elrond" - present tense. Could we indeed see Celebrian in TH (as was speculated a while back)? If so, I wonder who's playing her (probably not a major role, but intriguing nonetheless).

More like a strongly worded letter! [In reply to] Can't Post

They'll put loads of ridiculous Dwarf jokes in, but not a talking purse! It doesn't have to even talk! Just squeak! Or just be shown!

Works for me... [In reply to] Can't Post

It fits in the Celebrian's fate from Tolkien's writings, and would help explain why Elrond is so grouchy by the time of TH (though he doesn't sound much more affable while speaking with Thorin, anyway). ;)

But IMO, it would be a tad underwhelming for Celebrian and Arwen not to share any screentime as a family unit (which PJ remedied for Denethor/Bomomir/Faramir in the TT:EE). Hopefully if she's in it, they'll bring Liv back for this Summer's shooting, even if it's for just a cameo.

Argh! [In reply to] Can't Post

It's getting more convoluted the more I hear!

It seems like the snowball effect...one little change leads to another and then that forces another! They don't want to include the purse so have to come up with a replacement way for the Trolls to catch Bilbo so they hit on the idea of them stealing the ponies so that Bilbo has to rescue them - but needs a knife...and we know from Sibley's book the Dwarves are actually put on spits to roast, not just left in the sacks...

Then we have a made-up Warg attack - or at least, chase - inserted after this?

And the WC plot now means Gandalf missing the beginning of Over Hill and Under Hill ?

Oh boy...Unsure

In the book, he is with them even as they are being captured [In reply to] Can't Post

but he disappears in a flash of light leaving some goblins dead and doesn't reappear until his light show in the Goblin King's cavern

I like the change with Bilbo sneaking up on the trolls [In reply to] Can't Post

By removing the talking purse (which is a change we all saw coming for obvious reasons) I don't know how they could have done it. Bilbo trying to steal the knife for no reason? At least with the ponies it makes sense.

unlike danielLB I don't mind the change of the talking purse [In reply to] Can't Post

its the whole thing again about needlessly changing the reason Bilbo goes in the first place. The dwarves were wet cold tired and hungry. Seen a fire in the distance and thought the burgler could go see what its about.... I don't see any problem with the original reason to be honest The purse doesn't bother me one bit being changed. Its just more needless changes that didn't need to be made is all Crazy

Nice to see Fili and Kili [In reply to] Can't Post

Utilising their scouting skills as they did in the book as well.Fili looks superb as a young Dwarf and Kili in this picture doesn't look too bad either.Wink
I don't mind the change either the purse would have been borferline ridiculous.
