Capricorn One [In reply to] Can't Post


In Reply To
...I think in the movie verse his death would be acceptable because he was never even mentioned in the LOTR movies and therefore needs to be written out in a definitive way by the end of The Hobbit trilogy.


So Radagast should retroactively die because Jackson & Co. failed to foresee a need for him in The Lord of the Rings? This is ridiculously akin to the situation in the movie, Capricorn One, where NASA fakes a mission to Mars with three astronauts when they discover just before launch that it won't work. The real unmanned capsule burns up during reentry due to a faulty heat shield. So the government decides to kill the astronauts who are still hidden away on Earth to save face.

Killing off Radagast because of a writers' omission is the same reprehensible situation.

But like I said, killing him off to cure his poo problem is entirely justifiable. Maybe in the fan edit. Wink
