Ahhh.. I see [In reply to] Can't Post

Where is the material in the bit between the Hobbit and the LOTR? In which book? (Or, knowing Tolkien, books)

things like [In reply to] Can't Post

There's a bit in the appendices or it's been speculated that it would focus on a few characters or one or so and what happened to them in between such as Gandalf

The only books they can use are... [In reply to] Can't Post

They would only have the rights to anything in The Hobbit and LotR. Most likely, they will be mining the appendices for the second film and extrapolating a great deal of their own story from there.

there seems to be a lot of these discussions in these topics here [In reply to] Can't Post

honestly i just don't see them covering 80 years and so many different little by-stories of the characters very well in a movie

well [In reply to] Can't Post

as far as I've heard...PJ is doing the movies. There are some articles on the main page here that say that.

And I agree...he looks a bit haggard there
