Are they going to show Radagast's escape from the Wargs?

Are they going to show Radagast's escape from the Wargs? Can't Post

If they do, will it be in AUJ EE or in the next film? Maybe as a flashback at the beginning of the film, a bit like the opening of TTT where we see Gandalf on the bridge again? Or will it be later in the film?

We know from spoiler footage PJ gave us that Radagast turns up at the tomb in the High Fells, so obviously the two Istari had arranged to meet there, and Raddy says as much in that sneak peek. Because Radagast wasn't there when Galadriel spoke of the Tomb, he would have had to have been informed by Gandalf of the whole thing first, so we surely must see the two of them arranging the meeting on screen (or at least it must be mentioned in order to avoid confusing people).

Now, as soon as we see Radagast we are going to want to know where he has been to, how he got to where he is at that point and how he escaped the Wargs who were hot on his heels when last we saw him. So surely they will have to show something of his escape? Maybe a narration? Or will Radagast just briefly explain how he got away? What do you think?

Radagast will [In reply to] Can't Post

lead the warg scouts in circles across ME, until they reach
Isengard, where they stop and Radagast sends his birds to deliver a "welcome home present" for Saruman, in his chambers...

Time to turn left and press your foot hard, Rrrrrrrabits!

Vous commencez m'ennuyer avec le port!!!

Hate that scene [In reply to] Can't Post

That scene was beyond moronic. Why did the warg riders chase Radagast bunny ride at all? I thought they were looking for the dwarves, not an old geezer with bird poo in his face.

Rhudaur [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm not sure they'll show the escape, but I imagine when he and Gandalf are talking there'll be tacit acknowledgment that a few days ago at the Trollshaws he fled north up into Rhudaur to the Ettenmoors, where Gandalf joined him later.

I would've preferred to see Gandalf delving into danger alone, but I understand the filmmaker desire to give him someone to talk to that simultaneously fleshes out a key part of Middle-earth ... and gives us a fun, different, earthy wizard, too.

But it occurs to me that this explains how Gandalf had time to jet up to the Ettenmoors and then back down-range a bit to rescue The Company from the goblins; the very same high-pass Radagast needs to cross back into Wilderland by.

By the logic of the film's addition of this sequence, Gandalf can hitch a ride, get dropped off, rescue the dwarves, take them to Beorn's, leave them at Mirkwood and once again rejoin Radagast in Rhosgobel. Gandalf is utilizing Radagast heavily.

As far as I know [In reply to] Can't Post

there isn't much of a chase because the elves intercept the wargs rather quickly
