A whole year. Gotta wait a whole frakking year…
Oh wait, right.
It’ll be interesting to see what else they’ve added to the story. The stuff in the preview with Galadriel was a bit of a surprise.
Looks at least as good visually as the LOTR trilogy (which it should). What I think is interesting is that the movies are in the reverse order of the books, so to most non-Tolkien followers this will basically be a prequel.
That’s kinda how it was written, really.
