Lord of the Rings: A Hobbit's Tale [The Hobbit Remade] (Released)
Time

RELEASED. V2.

This superior edit of my edit flows better, and has fixed numerous but important transitions, flow, narrative and runtime.

Noteable changes:

  • Riddles In the Dark has been shortened by 1 minute and 40 seconds. This is simply to improve thep pacing of the film. It drags on a tad too long.
  • The Tree Battle has been removed. The film flows way better with it removed and with my narrative changes.
  • The first introduction to Gandalv has been a little bit shortened. I find the conversation too become a little bit too hard on the nose where comedy goes. I think leaving out some comedy helps sell the introduction of this creepy ass wizard showing up out of nowhere a little better. Being insulted like six times in three minutes feels too much.
  • Improved video quality massively.
  • Fixed one harsh audio transition.

… lots more.

This edit will receive an updated version, but both will be available.

  • This new version will cut the small prolonged pause between Bilbo and the farmer in the Shire, that made some people expect more dialogue to come.

  • The second edit will cut the entirety of Azog, The Eagles and the “Tree Root Battle”.

  • The video material is slightly cropped to enhance the feeling of old footage - in other words the feeling of the films being filmed ON FILM, more in the style of LOTR.

This updated version is simply due to the abrupt action peace the Azog scene is and its feel of finality.

Anjohan, thank you for your thoughts. Interesting to hear from someone for whom Ascendant was their first viewing of the film. I tend to agree with your overall assessment, that the movie is really an unfortunate conclusion to the saga and doesn’t leave fan editors much of the usual gifts. It’s a frustrating movie that we’ve been able to improve to a satisfying degree, though it remains a mess.
I’d be interested to hear your thoughts if you skim through the cut list, if you haven’t already.

Uhm, I could perhaps do so after work. Sorry for late response. I actually dont like Star Wars anymore. I know it sounds silly, but its true. Im always lurking on the Fanedits of other projects thread and completely forget about SW edits. Also;

Also, I’m genuinely interested in your first impression of the added dialogue when the huge fleet arrives, since that was totally absent in the theatrical. Did it feel like an edit or addition by us?

Definitely did not feel like an edit. Good work.

These movies are the magnum-opus of TV-To-Movie fanedits, and quite possibly the greatest way of watching Game of Thrones to be honest, faithful to the original feel of the show in an amazingly edited feature lengths, i watched all 8 seasons on HBO Max, and then watched the first 4 movies and can’t wait to see what Anjohan does with the finale.

Moreover, I’m longing to burning the edits into DVDs and put them right with my Lord of the Rings trilogy.

If want to be reaaally nit-picky in a other wise perfect series of edits, I think the titles should perhaps follow more closely the book titles (even if the series adapted only up to the 5th book).

I cant recommend these edits enough, if i would present GoT to my friends, this would definitely be a nice introduction to the show 😃

You flatter me beyond belief, friend, and definitely this is up there with one of those comments that make all the work feel worth it and motivate me to keep going for more, quality edits.

Thank you!

Oh boy, you’re golden and a blessing 😃 Now i’ll wait for the 4k master, i can wait that long.

Haha! 😄

Goblet of Fire Revisited will be released first, and then DH Revisited. I would recommend you to watch the 1080p 15 gig first, as the quality should be quite satisfactory. But of course, if you want to wait many more months - you are very so welcome!
