The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Thirteen Dwarrow!

Which is your favorite dwarf out of the company of Thorin Oakenshield?


The Hobbits: The Battle Of Twe Two Bagginses!

Who's the more interesting character in PJ's 6 films?

 

I would have to say Bilbo without even having anything resembling a second thought. I find Freeman a far more interesting actor then Wood. And his character, even with loadfs of invented subplots has a lot more meat on it's bones.

It's the same way in the books for me, actually.

 

Bilbo for the win!

The official JWFAN.net The Hobbit ending: book versus TBOFA speculation thread thingy (...

This thread is meant for people who have read the book and therefor know something about how the film COULD end. If you have not read the book and wish to remain spoiler free, the CLOSE THIS THREAD NOW. This is your only warning!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So in the book Thorin, Kili and Fili die. But of course it's possible that the film will not stick to that in favor of something original. Perhaps in an effort to "surprise" the fans. (though annoy them would be more likely)

 

It does seem likely that Thorin will die though. It would fit his arc. A essentially noble character driven to greed by his lust for the Arkenstone, only to redeem himself on the field of battle, giving his life. It can be assumed that he will perish after an epic final battle with Azog the Defiler.

 

It's essentially a total redo of Boromir. But done right it can work.

 

as for Kili, i do see the possibility of a diversion from the book there.

My prediction is that he will live. He will lose Tauriel in some way, which will leave him forever saddened. But he will take up his uncle's place and be the ruler of Erebor. Becoming sort of a sadder version of Aragorn. One who's loss has granted him wisdom beyond his young age.

 

Fili might die to reinforce that idea.

 


Middle Earth spin-off movies

26 October 2014 - 07:24 PM

This dawned on me while watching the DoS EE earlier today.

 

Spin-offs of Tolkiens written works already exist when it comes to games, so why should there not be spin-off movies? Set in Tolkien's Middle Earth, but without being actually based on his books.

This is what Disney will be doing with Star Wars, Marvel is essentially doing this with it's movies, so why can't Warner Bros and New Line do this with their Middle Earth franchise?
