Agreed. [In reply to] Can't Post

Doing a double climax with DG AND Smaug's attack would maybe work if that was the finale of the whole trilogy. But since the story continues, I think they will have to do a cliffhanger ending with Smaug.

It is a hard thing to pull off, having Laketown and SMaug's death during the first hour of TABA - but it is also a chance to show it as the cataclysmic event, setting almost a war between the Free Peoples in motion. PB has told about this unusual structure of the book before, so I would be surprised if they hadn't realized the potential of this structure for the last movie.



“A dragon is no idle fancy. Whatever may be his origins, in fact or invention, the dragon in legend is a potent creation of men’s imagination, richer in significance than his barrow is in gold.” J.R.R. Tolkien

Words of wisdom that should be remembered - both by critics, purists and anyone in between.
