They did [In reply to] Can't Post

They did shoot Gandalf walking up to it, recognizing what is it, and touching it to get the vision of Smaug leading Sauron's armies. What they did not do was the visual effects sequence of the actual vision. If they were to show a full deleted scene, they would probably show the vision through the concept art.

It doesn't matter I guess... [In reply to] Can't Post

I wish they had at least shown the filmed part of the scene (Gandalf walking to it, touching it) Frown.
DOS Extended Edition is already my favorite Middle-earth movie; but I can't imagine how better it would have been if the palantir scene was in it Unsure.

Yes, that's what I am talking about. Half of sequence isn't shooted at all. In comparison with acorn sequence for instance.

Well [In reply to] Can't Post

They could have shown the part of the scene that was shot, but they only showed some quick shots of it Unsure.
It would have been great if it was in DOS Extended Edition, they shouldn't have decided not to finish the scene Unsure.

Something I missed - the return of Billy Jackson! [In reply to] Can't Post

I guess staying up all night to watch appendices means I was bound to miss a few things, but, here was one that particularly excited me when I was watching them again with my wife today. In chapter 7 of part 11, we see Billy Jackson, PJ and PB's son, make his return to Middle-earth as an extra in Dale, fighting orcs.

I was happy to see this because we've seen absolutely nothing from him since the production of the Hobbit films began, and unlike PJ's daughter Katie, I just assumed he wanted to stay away from all of the limelight, like his mother. I also wondered if, maybe, he didn't support these films due to their major tonal departure from the novel.

Apparently not so. That made me happy.

"It's like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger, they were. And sometimes you didn't want to know the end. Because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it's only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer." - Samwise
