Dale. I doubt it would last much longer than the grim scenes shown in Galadriel's mirror, or the flash of the free lands falling under Sauron before the Alliance Battle. IF it were to happen, probably little more than Thranduil talking, mentioning events, and a fleeting glimpse of the beings involved with an incredible but not long featured backdrop.

It seems to me it would make very little sense to flesh out the backstory of Smaug, then have him killed in the next scene. After all, a backstory is only useful when somehow relevant for the character in the main story, which it isn't in the third film, simply because all he does is wreck a city and die. If they do show Gondolin and connect it to Smaug somehow, which I doubt, it would fit better as the prologue of the second film, leaving them room to connect the flashback to the present in the scenes where smaug actually talks.

And having a huge scene like the fall of gondolin right in front of the destruction of laketown, would make laketown much less grand in comparison. PJ wouldn't diminish such a crucial scene in favour of a mostly irrelevant flashback.

It would make much more sense to have a sauron flashback, since he's the main villain of the third movie, it seems.


"Hear me, hounds of Sauron, Gandalf is here! Fly if you value your foul skins, I will shrivel you from tail to snout if you step within this circle!"

"Do not be to eager to deal out death in judgement. Even the very wise cannot see all ends."

        Not entirely true. He has rights to use the name Gondolin, and to depict that it AinurOlorin Send a private message to AinurOlorin Jul 18 2013, 5:35am
