The Battle of Five Armies Can't Post

I was thinking about the the big 'end' battle. How can it be special? Without getting bigger and undoing the Battle of The Pelennor Fields? They can't use big siege weapons etc..

I read several interviews that it would have some aerial fighting - some dogfights. And PJ loves them so they will be there..

But still.,. It wasn't special to me - just a rehash of the battles of LotR: with the fell beasts, picking up people.

But yesterday I received the Hobbit Chronicles I - Art book. And in the forword by Dan Hennah he talks about how Bilbo (and the viewer) makes a journey from the sunny Shire to Dale, midwinter!

I didn't think of this, but a snowy battle is great. Just try to imagine: Wind, snow, frozen beards of the dwarves. The orcs coming down the mountainside. The boars of the cavalry storming through snow... Great imagery...

What do you think?

            I didn't say they had been confirmed DanielLB Send a private message to DanielLB Mar 5 2013, 11:38am
                You did pretty much say they were confirmed. You categorically said 'We've' got...trolls emre43 Send a private message to emre43 Mar 5 2013, 11:47am
                    Sorry for the misleading comment. :-) / DanielLB Send a private message to DanielLB Mar 5 2013, 11:51am

                I think that Trolls are more likely at Dol Guldur Otaku-sempai Send a private message to Otaku-sempai Mar 5 2013, 10:16pm
        problem there is that they'll have to be careful with animals/monsters (as there are a LOT of them) and I don't want it to turn into a Narnia film battle .. // Xanaseb Send a private message to Xanaseb Mar 6 2013, 2:23am
