Isn't Kili & Fili's relationship to Thorin mentioned late in the book, too? [In reply to] Can't Post


In Reply To
Fili and Kili's relationship to Thorin wasn't mentioned in AUJ. It's pretty important, but for some reason PJ left it out. At this point, no matter where he introduces the fact in DoS it's going to leave some moviegoers saying "Huh? Wait, they're related? Why wasn't this mentioned before?" It's an odd thing to leave out of the early part of the story.



If I remember right, Tolkien also took his time establishing the relationship between Thorin and his nephews.

    I think the Thorin, Fil and Kili connection will be established early in DoS sycorax82 Send a private message to sycorax82 Nov 17 2013, 1:18am
