Dwarf merchants deleted scene? Can't Post

I just remembered seeing this from one of the BTS videos. I'm guessing it was part of the prologue - I wonder if it was enough to be put back in on the DVD?

I'm not sure if this is part of a flash back from else where in the story [In reply to] Can't Post

Either way, I hope it is used Smile

But I believe dwarf merchants are mentioned in it, so probably deleted scenes.

There's also the '100 Erebor extras walking down a mountain side' scene that was mentioned in a NZ paper. In the movie we only see Thorin and a few dwarves.

It's probably a deleted scene from teh flashback of the prosperous days [In reply to] Can't Post

A completely wild hope is that it ties into some kind of visit by Balin in the end piece of TABA for Bilbo's birthday or something like that.

Ahh.. This WAS in the theatrical release though. [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm pretty tired, and maybe I didn't read these post FULLY or accurately, but if you're saying that this was missing from the movie, than I respectfully disagree. Tongue

I clearly remember this scene in the prolog along with shots of the dwarf women. Mind you this is a slightly zoomed in version, but I know I saw this. I was sitting pretty close in HFR... Wink

I think that scene was in the movie... [In reply to] Can't Post

... it's about the part where Bilbo says something like "a once mighty people brought low".

While the people from this scene may have been in that one as well, it featured a lot bleaker environment and was shot a lot further away.
