The LOTR script [In reply to] Can't Post

had to make substantive changes once New Line committed to three films. The script was originally intended for two films and quickly had to be re-written for three. Changes were also made once the cast was in place - the "hero" role sounds like the situation with Arwen. She was originally written to be at Helm's Deep, but once Liv Tyler was cast, the Arwen-as-hero didn't fit with her character. I think the scenes she filmed at Helm's Deep were edited to remove her, but she can be seen in one or two scenes.

The process for the Hobbit is more disciplined. Peter wrote a script for LOTR, then tried to get the studios to commit to making the movie. Hence all the changes - he was adapting the script to attract the fnancing. Peter doesn't have a commitment for The Hobbit, but he does have a studio that is very interested and has already agreed with his outline for two movies. There's very little chance that the overall structure for The Hobbit movies will be changed at this point in the process.

I understand your concerns, but I don't think they are likely to be realized.

Each cloak was fastened about the neck with a brooch like a green leaf veined with silver.

`Are these magic cloaks? ' asked Pippin, looking at them with wonder.

`I do not know what you mean by that,' answered the leader of the Elves.
