Over the last week or so, I’ve been watching the extended editions of The Hobbit. I think it’s the first time that I’ve made a point of watching them back-to-back (or at least close to it). The extended version of The Battle of the Five Armies adds a lot more battle than any other extended edition. It also adds some much-needed quiet moments.
Here’s a clip of “the return journey” from BOTFA. Nothing new here, but definitely some nice moments as Bilbo leaves one world for another . . . with hints of what’s to come decades later with the Ring.
