The “Will you follow me one last time?” line at the end of The Battle of the Five Armies Teaser Trailer feels like it’s Peter Jackson talking to the audience.
I’m not crying, I have an Arkenstone in my eye.
dear peter jackson; you’ve changed enough from the source material in the films that i request you to consider one more change in the final hobbit movie. an alternate ending. consider this:
smaug is dead and the battle over. everything is smoldering and the remaining dwarves gaze at the destruction with agony in their eyes. suddenly, fili and kili burst to their feet, pointing at the company. “haha, got you suckers!” they scream and high five each other loudly. thorin stands up. “good one bros” he cheers and they high five too and do a complicated handshake. everyone laughs fondly and pats their backs. the scene cuts out to a beautiful spring day. the eagles are all wearing flower crowns. dis is having a picnic with her sons. gandalf is cheerfully blowing things up. bilbo and thorin are off in a corner getting married. for some reason there are dogs. pugs. all the laketown pugs. the pugs are ringbearers. the pugs are bridesmaids and best men. the company gathers around and sings “we are the champions” as the sun sets. fade to black. TITLE SCREEN “THE HOBBIT: BATTLE OF THE FIVE ARMIES. FIN.” the end
thank you for your acceptance of my much better ending peter jackson ill be expecting a request for services as director by tomorrow morning. youre welcome
