Gandalf : the path from mirkwood to the High Fells [In reply to] Can't Post

Look ! There several paths in the north of the Misty mountains chain that leads without difficulty from Mirkwood to the Moutains of Angmar where lies the high fells, explaining how Gandalf will travel from one another in Desolation of Smaug ! I believe it's pure Movieverse exclusivity, they adapted the landscape to the scenario. I personally don't bother.

By the way, Mount Gundabad isn't shown on the map, I don't think we will se anything shot there, at least in DoS, and probably neither in TaBA...

I doubt the design of this map... [In reply to] Can't Post

... does this closely relate to the story in the movies.

There are locations in there that we already saw in AUJ and which are not mentioned on the map.

But then why depart from the original map ? [In reply to] Can't Post

Look, in the original map : http://i.imgur.com/Qfwtx.jpg?1 there is absolutely no way to make the journey that Gandalf will do in DoS in less than... I don't know, but weeks. And in this conveniently modified map, the travel is nearly a straight line going between the mountains. I can't see a coincidence, especially considering that this map has been made for the sole purpose of promoting the movie, and only names the major places of the hobbit films. I could be wrong of course, but this detail deserved at least a bit of speculation ! ^^

You could be right of course. [In reply to] Can't Post

But I see several little changes on that map, and I am pretty sure they are design, not movie-related.
