First of all, I think this idea is delightful– taking all the clips released so far and putting them in chronological order.
Second, I just figured out they’re releasing it in three movies (not two as I first thought), one per Christmas for the next two years then the third for the following summer’s blockbuster season.
Can I just say: This feels disingenuous.
I liked the idea of a two-part movie. I liked that we’re not squishing things too tight to include all the characters and iconic moments (P&P 2005 comes to mind).
But for the stretch to three, I anticipate a swirly of self-gratifying (LotR) backstory that is plain not-necessary for the enjoyment of this story.
Bppblt. But no one asked me.
I really wish they’ll do it well, but I don’t have high hopes.
All that out of the way, here’s the really-cool editing job. (Thanks for the link Kaye!)
