My hopes for the Extended Edition

My hopes for the Extended Edition Can't Post

So in the Hobbit Chronicles book it's been established that "The Old Took's Party" was filmed and presumably will be included in the AUJ EE. I hope that, so as to be consistent with the LOTR films, that Bilbo's Tookish relatives speak with a Scottish accent (I think it is a Scottish accent, anyway) like Billy Boyd's Pippin did in LOTR.

Perhaps it is me being extremely nit picky, and I suppose a lack of Scottish accents could be explained away logically somehow, but I think it would be neat if the Tooks all spoke with an accent.

That's just me, has anyone else thought of this?

I believe [In reply to] Can't Post

Dan Hennah plays the Old Took. I would love to see this!

Also, I really want to see Thorin and Gandalf meeting at the Green Dragon!!

Great avatar :) [In reply to] Can't Post

It would be good if they kept the theme of speaking with accents going. It can help show how Tooks are a little bit different.

I am looking forward to seeing the party scene and perhaps other scenes in Hobbiton or The Shire in general.

I would like to see them meet at the Green Dragon but i wonder what would be said there? I dont think it can stray too much otherwise it might go into Unfinished Tales territory.

Canonically they met at Prancing Pony... [In reply to] Can't Post

And I doubt that even the EE would involve Bree, any more. Also, it's hard to imagine where that scene would fit.

Sorry to nit pick but I'm pretty sure Gandalf meets Thorin at the Prancing Pony which is in Bree.

I doubt the Old Took will speak [In reply to] Can't Post

It will probably just be his birthday, and very young Bilbo amazed by Gandalf's fireworks.

I can't wait to see this scene though.

The accent geography of Peter Jackson's Middle Earth has been messed up big time by the Hobbit films. [In reply to] Can't Post

Boromir's (Yorkshire) accent is closer to Thorin than his own brother and father, and it's not far away from Merry's (Lancashire) accent.

Gimli and Balin have a Scottish accent, as does Pippin.

Dwalin occasionally slips into Russian.

It's probably less noticeable to someone not from the UK!

I think Peter Jackson values acting ability over accents, which is fair enough really.

Dwalin sounds pretty Glaswegian to me.... [In reply to] Can't Post

The actor is speaking in his native accent surely? Sounds like Glasgow to me.

Most of the time it's Glaswegian but the odd bit sounds Russian. Listen out for it next time. [In reply to] Can't Post

I don't think Ori sounds very posh at all. [In reply to] Can't Post

He sounds normal. And Dwalin definitely isn't Russian. But isn't it funny how we all perceive variations in dialect differently, depending on our own language and location.

The one time Dwalin sounded slightly Russian... [In reply to] Can't Post

Was when he was speaking to Gandalf about Thorin being at a meeting of our kin up north. But apart from that his accent is flawless.

Scottish? What sayest thou? [In reply to] Can't Post

I heard it as Erebor-ish, but tinged with Blue Mountain-ish because they'd lived there a long while...:)

"May the Looord of Black Larnd come Fort'" [In reply to] Can't Post

Still cracks me up every time.

Ori isn't really posh, just well-spoken and definitely Southern, whereas Dori sounds like Wallace from Wallace and Gromit.

I'm also hoping for Swedish Beorn.

I love Dwalin by the way, the Russian thing doesn't bother me at all, he's the coolest dwarf. I bought the Bag End Hobbit set essentially just to have a 2cm Balin lego man!

Bifur [In reply to] Can't Post

I would like to see how Bifur got that axe in the head. More Bifur in general.

It sounds like they will put a Bilbo and Elrond scene in the EE which would be cool. Felt like we lost track of him in Rivendell.

There was a rumour at one point that ... [In reply to] Can't Post

We would get to see (or hear) Thorin round up the Company to go on the Quest. If this was ever filmed, I doubt we'll ever get to see it. Just because the start of AUJ is so long already. I'd love to have some more backstory to all the Dwarves though. Bilbo finding out about Bifur's axe would've made a wonderful 3 minute scene somewhere.
