    SafeUnderHill reacted to Doug Adams in The Music Of The Hobbit Films - Doug Adams' Book confirmed by Howard Shore   
    It's almost as if someone thought that writing about the complete scores would help reinforce their commercial viability, thus paving the road to potential future releases. What madness!

    I'm absolutely certain this isn't Williams, but I'll be sure to edit this post later if I'm wrong.

    Thranduil arrived to the Greenwood the Great in the first millenium of the Second Age (around 750 to be specific) with his father Oropher who was chosen as the king of local silvan elves and founded the Woodland Realm. After Oropher died in the War of the Last Alliance Thranduil took the throne. So the Woodland Realm is quite an old kingdom even by Elven standards. Lothlórien was officially founded around the same time even though Nandor elves had lived in the area of the Anduin vale already in the First Age. So both are old.
     
    Tolkien doesn't state anywhere how old Smaug truly is. He supposedly came to the Lonely Mountain from the Withered Heath north of the Grey Mountains which had been long a domain of the dragons with some of them still living in the area and he was the mightiest of the fire-breathing kind in the Third Age. One might suppose Smaug was immensely old, either a refugee from the War of Wrath in the First Age (like the Balrog of Moria) or perhaps born in the Second Age.

    No:
     
    "And yes, the book follows the complete Extended Scores ... and in the order and structure of the original fully orchestrated compositions (meaning the first fully realized draft before filmmaker conformations)."

    Working on bringing the podcast back ... in a different format. Two in the can now, but I'm waiting for a few more before launching so that there are several ready to go right off the bat.
     
    An no, it's not video. I hate that too.

    With the Music of the Lord of the Rings, I usually like to listen to the CR's in conjunction with Doug's analysis, picking out themes at specific moments - something that it seems will be difficult to do without having to watch the scenes again to follow what he's saying. 
    That being said, the fact that they're producing this book gives me hope that the CR's might not be lost after all.

    That's not the actual cover. I always use temp covers when I write. Not sure why. It helps with mood, I guess.

    Wasn't trying to seem negative!  It's just amusing because, well, we're...weirdos.

    Hasn't Doug tweeted about renewing registration of that site before? Not sure if it indicates any kind of progress as such.
     
    As for CR's, I suppose we should remember that there is probably quite a bit of stuff we haven't heard - more music for the chariot sequence from the BotFA EE for example, which Doug confirmed he was referring to in part when he said there would be lots of good new music in the climactic parts of the BotFA EE (little did he know...). The funeral piece is obviously another one. There's probably some more from AUJ and DoS. I recall Jay and Jim saying something about unheard music for the initial Azanulbizar flashback in the DoS EE, this I really want to hear (however brief). I guess my point is, there's probably a fair few unheard gems we don't realize we need yet, but will be very thankful for if we ever get them.
     
    Like Jay, I too want it all (and now, as Freddie Mercury might have said if he was still alive, liked the Hobbit and was on these forums).

    Anyone notice this in one of Doug's replies?  
     
    A very small teaser but it's better than nothing!  Here's hoping the ball has started rolling again on this project.

    With that legal snarl settled to some extent, I'd hope to see the planned CR rereleases, and Doug's Hobbit book, sometime soon.
