Looking forward to this fanedit. It's the first and most ambitious fanedit of the hobbit trilogy I have heard of. I haven't even seen part 3 yet. I decided I'd rather just watch a fanedit than see the strung out version. So your version will be the first time I've seen part 3 of the hobbit!

You have no idea how excited I am for your final edit. I'm a huge Tolkien fan, and while Peter Jackson's LOTR trilogy wasn't perfect, it was still pretty great. But that Hobbit Trilogy would make Tolkien sick to his stomach. I'm so glad you're doing what you're dong and I'm psyched to watch your final cut!

Have you considered to give the option to watch the movie with subtitles?

Hi Gerardo, thanks for your comments! I would definitely like to add subtitles to this fanedit. Some posters here have generously offered to help translate to a couple different languages including Spanish, so hopefully we can work something out once the BOFA EE is released!

Dustin, are your fan edits of the three Hobbit movies based on the Extended Cuts?

Your work is huge! I actually couldn't help but laughing while reading what you cut out, because I must have felt the exact same way as you when I watched PJ's shame.

Which credits did you use?
6/13/2017 12:03:33 pm
The credits are from BOFA!

Thanks for all your work!

Did you make the final edit with BOFA extended editions? There's still some extended scenes that are from the book.

Great work, though I wish you could have edited the slaying of Smaug to eliminate that ridiculous improvised ballista crap (I really can't express just how much I DESPISE that scene). Maybe cut from Bard firing his last arrow, to the shot of the Black Arrow striking home (from what I saw it would actually have fit very seamlessly; the Black Arrow looks close enough to Bard's regular arrows, and the shot is so quick, that most viewers probably wouldn't have noticed).

I agree that the improved ballista thing is super ridiculous, but I bet editing that out would have been either too difficult or else would have made for some jarring jump-cuts.

Okay, so I'm a few years late, but just wanted to say this. Is. Amazing. After watching all the films of The Hobbit trilogy as they was released (and still buying them for some reason) I told myself I would never watch them again. I just had no desire to sit through all the bullcrap that padded the runtime. Now I can add this to my LOTR yearly viewings, so thank you very much, sir.

I've tried to burn these ISO's on a Verbatim DL blu ray disc and the burn keeps failing; Anyone know what the problem could be? Thanks!

What program are you using? IMGBurn definitely works for me.
12/18/2018 08:42:58 am
I used IMGBurn and MediaSuite both had a failed burn. I don't know if it is the discs or my burner; I have a external Blu Ray burner.

"I have reintroduced the Misty Mountains theme from An Unexpected Journey into the scene where Thorin and company rally the dwarves."

I watched this version of The Hobbit with my family, and more than any issues I've stated previously one stood out to a member of my family, Thorin's sword appearing out of nowhere actively took him out of the film. But otherwise we adored it, particularly I and my aforementioned Brother. I can't overstate the improvement it makes to the experience of viewing this adaptation, so for that I thank you above all else. As a fan of J.R.R Tolkien and Christopher Tolkien's Legendarium, but first and foremost as a film viewer. I hope Peter Jackson sees your version someday, and creates something official and similar, but alas. The road goes ever on and on.

Thanks for this! I had only seen the 3 parts once and I decided to watch yours with fresh eyes and very little memory of the originals, other than they were far too long, goofy, and disappointing. Your version was so much more enjoyable, and absolutely works as a decent prequel to LOTR, which I adore.
