So there will be a TABA extended cut! Can't Post

This means a DOS one as well. Forgive me for repeating old news but the previous thread made by boldog I believe isn't getting a lot of attention and is moving off the list... Sometime in the end of 2015 hey? So who's excited for it!

But since AUJ is getting one [In reply to] Can't Post

How could you not think DoS and TABA wouldn't either? It was a given really.

Because of the split into 3 films [In reply to] Can't Post

And some assumed that that meant less footage to be cut and then reinserted into an extended edition since they have more time and films to include all they wish to. But it seems this is not the case (I knew there would be), so this is glorious news. I hope each extended edition gets longer ala LOTR, with FotR being the shortest and RotK being the longest.

um [In reply to] Can't Post

For the majority of people on these forums there was never any doubt that we'd get 3 extended editions. PJ always have too much footage for theatrical editions.

You need to ask if we're excited?? [In reply to] Can't Post

Yes, I'm excited!!! I expected it all along, but that doesn't make the waiting any easier.

I'd love if the EE's were in a book-like case to match my LOTR EE's, but a thread below seems to indicate that they may be in miniature replicas of Bilbo's trunk. A novel idea, I suppose, and it has merit. Still... it'd be kind of nice if they all matched.

If so, what colors should the Hobbit EE's be? Blue, green, and red are taken. What's left that would be appropriate? Brown, gold, black, silver, white? (White would be nice for TABA, especially if we get a BOFA in the snow.)

"I had forgotten that. It is hard to be sure of anything among so many marvels. The world is all grown strange. Elf and Dwarf in company walk in our daily fields; and folk speak with the Lady of the Wood and yet live; and the Sword comes back to war that was broken in the long ages ere the fathers of our fathers rode into the Mark! How shall a man judge what to do in such times?"

"As he ever has judged. Good and ill have not changed since yesteryear; nor are they one thing among Elves and Dwarves and another among Men. It is a man's part to discern them, as much in the Golden Wood as in his own house."

This isn't exactly surprising news... [In reply to] Can't Post

I think most of us expected this, TBH.

Once we knew there'd be an AUJ-EE it was basically confirmed [In reply to] Can't Post

PJ clearly has a lot left that he wants to say about Middle-earth before he's done with the franchise (whether that's a good thing or a bad thing I won't comment at the moment). Plus he knows that fans expect and want EEs given how popular the LOTR ones. I can't imagine any scenario in which PJ wouldn't have gone ahead and released the even greater volume of material he has, and I'm sure Warner Bros. was more than happy to oblige.

There's a feeling I get, when I look to the West...

I think Peter should do real snappy theatrical cuts of both DoS and TABA [In reply to] Can't Post

While I liked just about everything that was included in AUJ, and could easily have sat through a few more minutes, it DID drag in places. For DoS I want everything up to the barrels to be much pacier than AUJ's first hour.
