The appendices stuff probably comes in the next two films [In reply to] Can't Post

That's my guess. To be fair, I don't believe it's ever been said that all the changes are based on the appendices. And I wonder if Peter is misusing the word "appendices" and intends instead to refer to the broader scope of Tolkien's other works, such as THE HISTORY OF THE HOBBIT, which certainly contains more information about the Hobbit than the LOTR appendices.

Really? [In reply to] Can't Post

There will almost certainly be some dwarf history in the first film, particularly that related to Azog/Bolg. That comes from the Appendices.

It worries me more than it encourages me, primarily because Peter has a [In reply to] Can't Post

tendency, when given leeway, to fill in undefined and ambiguous spaces with material that contradicts information that is already provided. I am not bothered by Peter's version of events having scenes which did not occur in the actual story, but I have an ENORMOUS problem with the notion of Peter incorporating scenes which either directly contradict the events that did unfold in the actual tale, or which would not have happened based on the information that is known from the histories.

That is a damned big difference, [In reply to] Can't Post

And one which Tolkien very deliberately does not allow, as the implications are massive. The Witch-King has to be perceived as a credible threat, even in the face of Gandalf's power, but the book avoided the contradiction of having Gandalf driven back by a creature whom earlier passages in The Two Towers have already declared him to be superior to, and in the wake of him having defeated the more ancient and potent evil of The Balrog.

In Reply To
The Witchking confronts Gandalf, says pretty much the same thing as in the film, his sword catches fire(again, just like in the film) and Rohan's arrival interrupts him. The only difference is Gandalf's staff breaking.
