As long as it's decent 'fan-fiction' - [In reply to] Can't Post

Someone mentioned fan-fiction above: that's all they would be.

- I'll be OK with it.

I see the movies as parallel universe versions of the books. My mental vision of the places and events of LOTR was quite a bit grander than what appeared on the cinema screens, but I'm long past the point where I expect the books and the films to be the same.

I still believe a completely accurate version of Tolkien's Middle-Earth tales is unfilmable, but I definitely appreciate PJ and Co's efforts.

more importantly (b) PJ fans want them.

I'll admit that I want to see the War in the North on the cinema screens. I was a fan of the Hobbit first, and while I also came to be a fan of the Lord of the Rings later, I had been expecting more of the characters from the earlier book to be involved.

(I had expected Orcrist to play a part in the sequel too. It's fate at the end of the Hobbit seemed to hint at further adventures for the Dwarves of Erebor).

A 'War in the North' movie series is almost certainly not something for the purists, but those who appreciate some of the 'expanded material' in the Middle-Earth films might find it of interest.

Ultimately, I think we'll see how the 'extra' Thranduil/Bard/Tauriel/Beorn/Dol Guldur/Legolas (and so on) material plays out before deciding if an almost completely original movie is viable.

If that does turn out to be the case, the War in the North is best suited as a follow-up to the 'Hobbit' and 'Lord of the Rings' movies. If Warner and and New Line don't want to lose the rights to the very lucrative Middle-Earth franchise, it would be the direction to go.


From the makers of 'The Lord of the Rings' comes the sequel to Peter Jackson's Hobbit Trilogy -
'The War in the North, Part I : The Sword in the Tomb'.
