Return of the King Extended Edition tidbits; DGA award

by on Feb.09, 2004, under General News

Peter Jackson gave a few hints as to what may appear in the Extended Edition of The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, although not everything filmed will make it in. I’m a bit confused as to whether these will or won’t be included, but I hope they are, even if they aren’t “true to the book”: a drinking contest between Gimli and Legolas, and a scene with Frodo and Sam pretending to be orcs. And Peter Jackson won the Director’s Guild of America award for RotK, which bodes well for is Oscar chances.

    Frodo & Sam

    Well, Frodo and Sam did pretend to be orcs in the book, and they were forced to march along with an orc column for a while while in disguise, pretty much as the article describes.
