"Almost guaranteed" [In reply to] Can't Post

I am absolutely fascinated to see how they construct these three movies out of the source material so I love these types of questions and you did say "almost"

The Book

Chapters 7 through 12

The developed material

Gandalf/Radagast visit to the tombs in the high fells. The company haven't had a progress meeting since Rivendell and to ask Gandalf for an up date on where he has been seems logical or simply prologue it. One other potential prologue is the story of Thrain giving the key and map to Gandalf for safe keeping and then leaving to return for Erebor during which he is waylaid and captured by young Bolg.

Gandalf in the book leaves the company at the end of chapter 7 so I expect the sub plot to move all the way through its story arc in Part 11. In LOTR terms a kind of Helms Deep finish. So we will see Gandalf's visit to Dol Gulder where I now expect Thrain still to be alive and Gandalf is made aware that his ring has been taken by the necromencer. Bolg will obviously feature and Gandalf may barely escape and bring in the cavalry.

This part could be the most satisfying as the sub plot is revealed and we get great work on Beorn/Spiders/Elves/Laketown/Erebor and Dale post holocaust. I expect much greater depth of characterisation for both the Elven and Laketown segments than the book.

But as Manuel says "I know nothing"

I tried to save the shire , and it has been but not for me.

        I think the Dol Guldur business might play out thus, leaving out some of my musings. . . AinurOlorin Send a private message to AinurOlorin Jan 4 2013, 7:08pm
