Yep, most of them as far as I can tell.

Yeah, those are from the cover story in the latest print edition [In reply to] Can't Post

The Hobbit: DOS is the cover story and mostly focuses on the changes being made to the story compared to the book. And TORn gets a mention regarding fan debate over AUJ. The full story isn't available online (yet), but they've posted these pictures, and a couple of interviews with Orlando Bloom and Evangeline Lilly.

My favorite part is a quote from a 1951 JRRT letter regarding "an openness to the idea of other artists furthering his vision of Middle-earth: 'The cycles should be linked to a majestic whole, and yet leave scope for other minds and hands, wielding paint and music and drama.' "

Second favorite part: Richard Armitage's nephew named his new hamster Tauriel, so she's already popular in their family. Smile

Actually, it's not the full version, it's the iPad version [In reply to] Can't Post

I was going to post that link, but when I compared it to my magazine, it didn't have everything, so I was waiting to see if EW would post it. Unfortunately, since the iPad version is interactive, the sections that you have to roll over to expand aren't viewable in the screen shots. But I guess it's a good alternative for now. Thanks!

The only rollover not included [In reply to] Can't Post

 is the "Meet the New Players". Otherwise it's the same article & pics. :)

Oh, OK, thanks for clarifying [In reply to] Can't Post

The content seemed shorter when I was scanning it for the quotes I included above, but I didn't compare it line by line, and just noticed the meet the new players section was different. Looks like the layout of content and photos is in a different order, but it's all included. Smile

Except for the fact that [In reply to] Can't Post

"linked to a majestic whole" indicates continuity: something not achieved by changes such as the resurrection of Azog.

Of the Horns of Ylmir calling - and shall hear them till my death.

I'm not sure that's what the quote means [In reply to] Can't Post

By that logic, no one should change ANYTHING in an adaptation, which is certainly not what the author means. "A majestic whole" to me speaks of a singular spirit or heart of Tolkien's world.

I don't have a problem with changes in adaptations [In reply to] Can't Post

I just have a problem with that quote being used to somehow legitimize Jackson's adaptation as canon or on a level that Tolkien would approve of.

'Twas in the Land of Willows that I heard th'unfathomed breath
Of the Horns of Ylmir calling - and shall hear them till my death.

WoW!!! [In reply to] Can't Post

The first pic of Bilbo, looks like he's in a scene from Harry Potter in Bellatrix Lestrange's volt at Gringotts bank, along with that Gemini spell of multiplying gobblets.

Thanks for sharing Smile
