I'm 100% sure they'll be the same. [In reply to] Can't Post

I didn't see where you noted about the difference in no. of pages in the listings. I don't know why they're listed like that, but I guess it probably does have something to do with going from 2 films to 3.

The Annual (/Almanac/Activity Book) is the only book that appears to have been published before there was chance to chop material out. Paddy Kempshall (who wrote the Annual, The World of Hobbits, and the Storybook) tweeted early this year that he was writing for a super secret exciting project (meaning the Hobbit books, he confirmed later) which was well before the 2 films became 3, so he must've had to chop them down.

The Chronicles book is being published on the same day worldwide; it's being advertised with the same blurb on both the US and UK publishers sites, so that's why I'm 100% positive it's exactly the same content. I'd guess that just over 60 pages have gone that related to material now in DoS, and that the US listing just hasn't been updated since it was first announced (which was pre-3 films).

I'd still recommend buying whichever is cheaper for you depending on what part of the world you're in.

Perfectly Kingly and Dwarven, without making him look ugly.What a shame.Unsure
I love the multiple braids, it looks so B.A.Cool

We are more connected than ever before, more able to spread our ideas and beliefs, our anger and fears. As we exercise the right to advocate our views, and as we animate our supporters, we must all assume responsibility for our words and actions before they enter a vast echo chamber and reach those both serious and delirious, connected and unhinged.
