A point about the White Council attacking Dol Guldur Can't Post

I've seen some people suggest this event may take place in the 3rd film, or be placed after Smaug's attack on Laketown.

In the timeline, the White Council attacks Dol Guldur within the same month that Bilbo finds the one ring. It is a few months later when Smaug attacks Laketown and is killed.

Now obviously Peter Jackson could change things around. No one really knows what he is going to do until we see the film. But I strongly suspect we will see the White Council attack Dol Guldur in the 2nd film, and that it will happen before Smaug is killed off.

    Knowing PJ, I imagine the timing of the assualt on Dol Guldur will not at all be influenced by the book's timeline. Kassandros Send a private message to Kassandros Jan 25 2013, 8:06pm

                                                                        Basically, you are giving the exact reasons why I find the Smaug-prologue a terrible idea. Lightice Send a private message to Lightice Jan 27 2013, 12:21pm
