Page   1   2   THE NOVEL


Radagast: The Greenwood is sick, Gandalf. A darkness has fallen over it, nothing grows anymore. At least nothing good. The air is foul decay, but worse are the webs.
Gandalf: Webs? What do you mean?
Radagast: Spiders, Gandalf. Giant ones. Some kind of spawn of Ungoliant, or I’m not a wizard. I followed their trail. They came from Dol Guldur.
Gandalf: Dol Guldur? But the old fortress is abandoned.
Radagast: No, Gandalf. It is not.
[we see flashback of Radagast being led to an abandoned fortress of Dol Guldur]
Radagast: [voice over] A dark power dwells in there, such as I have never felt before. It is the shadow of an ancient horror. One that can summon the spirits of the dead.
[we see Radagast fight off a ghost as it attacks him]
Radagast: [voice over] I saw him, Gandalf. From out of the darkness, the Necromancer has come!
[as he sees the Necromancer, Radagast makes a run for it and gets on sled]


[after telling his story about the Necromancer, Radagast looks shaken]
Radagast: Sorry.
Gandalf: Try a little old Toby. It’ll help setting your nerves.
[he places his pipe in Radagast’s mouth who inhales from the pipe]
Gandalf: And out.
[Radagast lets out the smoke through his nose and looks more visibly relaxed]
Gandalf: Now, the Necromancer. Are you sure?
[Radagast takes the sword that the ghost wielded and gives it to Gandalf]
Radagast: That is not from the world of the living.
[suddenly they hear a howling noise]hobbit-8
Bilbo: Was that a wolf? Are there…are there wolves out there?
Bofur: Wolves? No, that is not a wolf.
[suddenly something growls from behind them and they all turns to see a warg scouts and they start attacking them, Kili and Thorin manage to kill two of them]
Thorin: Warg scouts! Which means an orc pack is not far behind!
Bilbo: Orc pack?
Gandalf: Who did you tell about your quest, beyond your kin?
Thorin: No one.
Gandalf: Who did you tell?!
Thorin: No one, I swear! What in Durin’s name is going on?
Gandalf: You are being hunted.
Dwalin: We have to get out of here.
Ori: We can’t! We have no ponies. They bolted.
Radagast: I’ll draw them off.
Gandalf: These are Gundabad wargs. They will outrun you!
Radagast: These are Rhosgobel rabbits. I’d like to see them try.


[we see Radagast racing on his rabbit sled across the open plain being pursued by the wargs and orcs]
Radagast: Come and get me!
[Radagast laughs, then Gandalf comes out from behind a large rock and looks at Radagast drawing the orcs off their trail]
Gandalf: Come on!
[Gandalf and the dwarves hurry off in a different direction from the orcs, then they comes across the orcs again]
Gandalf: Stay together.
Thorin: Move!
[they hurry along trying hide and keep away from the orcs, when they suddenly come across them again]
Thorin: Ori, no! Come back.
Gandalf: All of you, come on, come on! Quick!
Thorin: Where are you leading us?
[Gandalf looks at Thorin with no reply and moves on ahead, but one of the orcs chasing after Radagast feels something is amiss so he comes over to investigate where the dwarves are hiding under a cliff, as he gets close Thorin indicates to Kili who uses his bow to take the orc and his warg down after which the dwarves kill him uses their swords]


[the other orcs chasing after Radagast hear the squealing of the orc the dwarves have just killed]
Hunter Orc: [subtitled] The Dwarf-scum are over there! After them!
[Gandalf and the dwarves hear the wargs howling and see the orcs racing towards them]
Gandalf: Move! Run!
[the dwarves make a run for it]
Gloin: There they are!
Gandalf: This way! Quickly!
Kili: There’s more coming!
Thorin: Kíli! Shoot them!
[Gandalf notices a large rock and runs towards it]
Fili: We’re surrounded!
[Kili shoots one of the orcs with his bow]
Fili: Where’s Gandalf?
Dwalin: He’s abandoned us!
[as the orcs get nearer]
Thorin: Hold your ground!
[as the orcs get closer suddenly Gandalf appears from behind the large rock he’d noticed earlier]
Gandalf: This way, you fools!
Thorin: Come on, move! Quickly! All of you!
[they follow Gandalf and find that beneath the rock is an underground tunnel]
Thorin: Go, go, go!
[the dwarves all start jumping inside the underground tunnel and Gandalf counts the dwarves]
Gandalf: …nine, ten…
[Thorin shouts to Kili as he kills another orc with his bow]
Thorin: Kíli! Run!
[Kili turns and makes a run for it as the orcs get closer]


[inside the underground tunnel the dwarves hear a hunting horn and the noise of arrows being shot, we see the elves have arrived and as the elves start killing the orcs, one of them topples down into the underground tunnel, Thorin removes the bow from the orc]
Thorin: Elves.
Dwalin: I cannot see where the pathway leads. Do we follow it or not?
Bofur: We follow it, of course!
Gandalf: I think that would be wise.
[they follow the path inside the tunnel and find that it has led them to Rivendell]
Gandalf: The Valley of Imladris. In the common tongue, it’s known by another name.
Bilbo: Rivendell.
Gandalf: Here lies the last homely house, east of the sea.
Thorin: This was your plan all along, to seek refuge with our enemy.
Gandalf: You have no enemies here, Thorin Oakenshield. The only ill-will to be found in this valley is that which you bring yourself.
Thorin: You think the Elves will give our quest their blessing? They will try to stop us.
Gandalf: Of course, they will. But we have questions that need to be answered. If we are to be successful this will need to be handled with tact, and respect, and no small degree of charm, which is why you will leave the talking to me.
[they start making their way towards Rivendell]


[as they enter Rivendell they are met by some elves]
Lindir: Mithrandir.
Gandalf: Ah, Lindir.
[Thorin whispers to Dwalin]
Thorin: Stay sharp.
[Lindir starts speaking in Elvish to Gandalf]
Lindir: [subtitled] We heard you had crossed into the Valley.
Gandalf: I must speak with Lord Elrond.
Lindir: My Lord Elrond is not here.
Gandalf: Not here? Where is he?
[they hear the hunting horn and turn to see the returning elf war party]
Thorin: Close ranks!
[the elf war party surround the dwarves, we see Elrond is with the war party]
Elrond: Gandalf!
Gandalf: Lord Elrond.
[Gandalf greets Elrond in Elvish]
Gandalf: [subtitled] My friend! Where have you been?
Elrond: [subtitled] We’ve been hunting a pack of Orcs that came up from the South. We slew a number near the Hidden Pass.
[Elrond gets off his horse and embraces Gandalf]
Elrond: Strange for orcs to come so close to our borders. Something or someone has drawn them near.
Gandalf: Ah, that may have been us.


[Elrond notices Thorin coming towards him]
Elrond: Welcome Thorin, son of Thrain.
Thorin: I do not believe we have met.
Elrond: You have your Grandfather’s bearing. I knew Thror when he ruled under the mountain.
Thorin: Indeed? He made no mention of you.
[Elrond says something to Thorin in Elvish]
Gloin: What is he saying? Does he offer us insult?
Gandalf: No, Master Gloin, he’s offering you food.
[the dwarves turn and discuss amongst themselves then turn back to Gandalf]
Gloin: Ah, Well. In that case, lead on.


[as they dwarves sit around the elves dining table, Ori picks up a lettuce leaf]
Dori: Try it. Just a mouthful.
Ori: I don’t like green food.
[the dwarves find that the elves’ supper consists of fruits and vegetables]
Dwalin: Where’s the meat?
Ori: Have they got any chips?
[as they walk towards the dinner table]
Gandalf: Kind of you to invite us. I’m not really dressed for dinner.
Elrond: Well, you never are.
[they take their seats, joining the dwarves]


[at the dining table, Elrond examines one of the swords that Gandalf and Thorin had taken from the trolls’ cave]
Elrond: This is Orcrist, the Goblin-cleaver. A famous blade, forged by the High Elves of the West. My kin.
[he gives the sword back to Thorin]
Elrond: May it serve you well.
[he takes Gandalf’s sword]
Elrond: And this is Glamdring. The Foe-hammer, sword of the King of Gondolin. These swords were made for the Goblin wars of the First…
[as Elrond is explaining how the swords were made, Bilbo takes out the dagger that Gandalf had given him earlier and looks at it curiously]
Balin: I wouldn’t bother, laddie. Swords are named for their great deeds they do in war.
Bilbo: What are you saying, my sword hasn’t seen battles?
Balin: I’m not actually sure it is a sword. More of a letter opener, really.
[referring to the swords]
Elrond: How did you come by these?
Gandalf: We found them in a troll hoard on the Great East road, shortly before we were ambushed by orcs.
Elrond: And what were you doing on the Great East road?


[later that night Gandalf, Bilbo, Thorin and Balin meet privately with Elrond]
Thorin: Our business is no concern of Elves.
Gandalf: For goodness sake. Thorin, show him the map!
Thorin: It is the legacy of my people. It’s mine to protect! As are its secrets.
Gandalf: Save me from the stubbornness of dwarves. Your pride will be your downfall. You stand here in the presence of one of the few in Middle-earth who can read that map. Show it to Lord Elrond!
[Thorin takes out the map]
Balin: Thorin, no!
[Thorin gives the map to Elrond, he opens it and takes a look]
Elrond: Erebor. What is your interest in this map?hobbit-10
Gandalf: It’s mainly academic. As you know, this sort of artifacts sometimes contains hidden text.
[Thorin looks at Gandalf gratefully for not giving their quest away]
Gandalf: You still read ancient dwarvish, do you not?
[Elrond reads from the map]
Elrond: ‘Cirth ithil’.
Gandalf: Moon runes. Of course. An easy thing to miss.
Elrond: Well in this case, that is true. Moon runes can only be read by the light of the moon of the same shape and season as the day on which they were written.
Thorin: Can you read them?


[referring to the map]
Elrond: These runes were written on a mid-summer’s eve by the light of a crescent moon nearly two hundred years ago. It would seem you were meant to come to Rivendell. Fate is with you, Thorin Oakenshield. The same moon shines upon us tonight.
[he places the map on a stone slab right under the moon, and as the moon’s light shines on the map, it reveals the runes and Elrond translates]
Elrond: ‘Stand by the grey stone when the thrush knocks, and the setting sun with the last light of Durin’s Day will shine upon the keyhole.’
Bilbo: Durin’s Day?
Gandalf: It is the start of the dwarves new year, when the last moon of Autumn and the first sun of Winter appear in the sky together.
Thorin: This is ill news. Summer is passing, Durin’s Day will soon be upon us.
Balin: We still have time.
Bilbo: Time, for what?
Balin: To find the entrance. We have to be standing at exactly the right spot, at exactly the right time. Then, and only then, can the door be opened.
Elrond: So this is your purpose, to enter the mountain.
Thorin: What of it?
Elrond: There are some who would not deem it wise.
[Elrond gives the map back to Thorin]
Gandalf: Who do you mean?
Elrond: You are not the only guardian to stand watch over Middle-earth.
[Elrond turns and leaves]


[the surviving orc scouts returns to their master, Azog, whose missing arm has been replaced with a spike]
Hunter Orc: [subtitled] The Dwarves, Master…we lost them. Ambushed by Elvish filth, we were…
Azog: [subtitled] I don’t want excuses. I want the head of the Dwarf King!
Hunter Orc: [subtitled] We were outnumbered, there was nothing we could do. I barely escaped with my life.
Azog: [subtitled] Far better you had paid with it.
[furious, Azog picks up the scout and throws him to wargs who attack and kill him]
Azog: [subtitled] The Dwarf-scum will show themselves soon enough.
[turning to the orc scouts]
Azog: [subtitled] Send out word, there is a price on their heads!
[the orcs set out again on their wargs]


[as the dwarves settle in for the night, they cook their own food that they brought, Bofur is cooking a sausage when he hears the table Bombur is sat on is creaking, he throws his sausage at Bombur]
Bofur: Bombur!
[as Bombur catches the sausage the table underneath Bombur breaks and crashes, making all the dwarves laugh]


[later on that evening Gandalf meets with Elrond]
Gandalf: With or without our help, these dwarves will march on the mountain. They’re determined to reclaim their homeland. I do not believe Thorin Oakenshield feels that he’s answerable to anyone. Nor for that matter am I.
Elrond: But it’s not me you must answer to.
[at that moment Gandalf notices Galadriel turning to face them]
Gandalf: Lady Galadriel.
Galadriel: Mithrandir.
[she starts speaking in Elvish]
Gandalf: [subtitled] It has been a long time.
Galadriel: [subtitled] Age may have changed me, but not so the lady of Lorien.
[Galadriel smiles]
Galadriel: I had no idea Lord Elrond had sent for you.
[Gandalf hears the Saruman’s voice from behind him]
Saruman: He didn’t. I did.
[Gandalf turns and sees Saruman]
Galadriel: Saruman.
Saruman: You’ve been busy of late, my friend.


Saruman: Tell me, Gandalf, did you think these plans and schemes of yours would go unnoticed?
Gandalf: Unnoticed? No, I…I’m simply doing what I feel to be right.
Galadriel: The dragon has long been on your mind.
Gandalf: It is true, my Lady. Smaug owes allegiance to no one. But if he should side with the enemy, the dragon could be used to terrible effect.
Saruman: What enemy? Gandalf, the enemy is defeated. Sauron is vanquished. He can never regain his full strength.
Elrond: Gandalf, for four hundred years we have lived in peace. A hard won watchful peace.
Gandalf: Are we? Are we at peace? Trolls have come down from the mountains, they are raiding villages, destroying farms. Orcs have attacked us on the road.
Elrond: Hardly a prelude to war.
Saruman: Always you must meddle. Looking for trouble where none exists!
Galadriel: Let him speak.
Gandalf: There is something at work beyond the evil of Smaug, something far more powerful. We can remain blind to it, but it will not be ignoring us, that I can promise you. A sickness hides over the Greenwood. The woodsmen who live there now call it Mirkwook, and…uh, they s…they say…
Saruman: Well, don’t stop now, tell us what the woodsmen say?
Gandalf: They speak of a Necromancer, living in Dol Guldur, a sorcerer who can summon the dead.
Saruman: That’s absurd. No such power exists in this world. This Necromancer is nothing more than a mortal man. A conjurer dabbling in black magic.
Gandalf: And so I though too. But Radagast has seen…
Saruman: Radagast? Do not speak to me of Radagast the Brown. He’s a foolish fellow.
Gandalf: Well, he’s odd, I grant you. He lives a solitary life.
Saruman: It’s not that. It’s his excessive consumption of mushrooms. They’ve addled his brain, and yellowed his teeth. I warned him. It is unbefitting one of the Istari wandering the wood…


[as Saruman is talking away to Gandalf, Galadriel starts talking to Gandalf through his mind]
Galadriel: [voice over] You carry something. It came to you from Radagast, he found it in Dol Guldur.
Gandalf: [voice over] Yes.
Galadriel: [voice over] Show me.
[Gandalf brings out the sword Radagast gave him wrapped in cloth]
Elrond: What is that?
Galadriel: A relic of Mordor.
[Elrond unveils the sword]
Elrond: A Morgul blade.
Galadriel: Made for the witch-king of Angmar, and buried with him. When Angmar fell, the men of the North took his body, and all that he possessed and sealed it within the high fells of Rhudaur. Deep within the rock they buried him, in a tomb so dark it would never come to light.
Elrond: This is not possible. A powerful spell lies upon those tombs, they cannot be opened.
Saruman: What proof do we have this weapon came from Angmar’s grave?
Gandalf: I have none.
Saruman: Because there is none. Let us examine what we know. A single orc pack has dared to cross the Bruinen. A dagger from a by-gone age has been found. And a human sorcerer who calls himself the Necromancer, has taken up residence in a ruined fortress. It’s not so very much, after all. The question of this dwarvish company however, troubles me deeply. I’m not convinced, Gandalf. I do not feel I can condone such a quest. If they’d come to me, I might have spare them this disappointment. I will not pretend to understand your reasons for raising their hopes…
[as Saruman continues to talk, Galadriel speaks to Gandalf again through his mind]
Galadriel: [voice over] They are leaving.
Gandalf: [voice over] Yes.
Galadriel: You knew.
[Gandalf gives her a knowing look]
Saruman: …I’m afraid there’s nothing else for it.
[just then Lindir interrupts their meeting]
Lindir: My Lord Elrond. The dwarves, they’ve gone.


[we see the dwarves leaving Rivendell and continuing on their journey]
Thorin: Be on your guard, we’re about to step over the Edge of the Wild. Balin, you know these paths, lead on.
Balin: Aye.
[as the dwarves continue on, Bilbo stops and looks back at Rivendell]
Thorin: Master Baggins, I suggest you keep up.
[Bilbo turns and joins the dwarves as they head off]


[back in Rivendell, Gandalf meets with Galadriel privately]
Galadriel: You will follow them.
Gandalf: Yes.
Galadriel: You are right to help Thorin Oakenshield. But I fear this quest has set in motion forces we do not yet understand. The riddle of the Morgul blade must be answered. Something moves in the shadows, unseen, hidden from our side, it will not show itself…not yet. But every day it grows in strength. You must be careful.
Gandalf: Yes.
[Gandalf turns and starts walking off]
Galadriel: Mithrandir.
[Gandalf turns to look at Galadriel]hobbit-11
Galadriel: Why the Halfling?
Gandalf: I do not know. Saruman believes that it is only a great power that can hold evil in check, but that is not what I have found. I’ve found it is the small things, everyday deeds of ordinary folk, that keep the darkness at bay. Simple acts of kindness and love. Why Bilbo Baggins? Perhaps it is because I’m afraid and he gives me courage.
[Galadriel takes hold of Gandalf’s hands]
Galadriel: Do not be afraid, Mithrandir. You are not alone.
[she speaks in Elvish]
Galadriel: [subtitled] If you should ever need my help, I will come.
[Gandalf looks down and sees Galadriel gently taking her hands away, when he looks up he sees that Galadriel is gone and he is alone]


[as the dwarves continue on their journey along a mountain pass a violent thunderstorm begins]
Thorin: Alright, hold on!
[Bilbo slips and the dwarves next to him stop him from falling off the edge]
Thorin: We must find shelter!
Dwalin: Look out!
[they all look up to see a giant rock flying towards them, it hits the edge of the mountain, shattering around them]
Bifur: Hold on!
Balin: This is no thunderstorms! It’s a thunder-battle! Look!
[they see a stone giant breaking another stone giant]
Bofur: Well bless me. The legends are true! Giants! Stone giants!
[the stone giants throw giant rocks at each other]
Thorin: Take cover, you fool!
Nori: Hold on!
[as the stone giants fight each other the mountain breaks around them]
Fili: Ki­li, grab my hand!
[suddenly the mountain they’re on comes to life and starts fighting with the other stone giant, the dwarves find themselves separated and trying to reunite as the stone giants fight, break each other, and fight some more]


[after the stone giants stop fighting the dwarves manage to get back together]
Balin: We’re alright! We’re alive!
Bofur: Where’s Bilbo? Where’s the hobbit?
[they see Bilbo has fallen off the edge of the mountain, holding on with his hands]
Thorin: Get him!
Bofur: Grab my hand! Bilbo! Come on and take it!
[the dwarves try to help him up and Thorin jumps down the side of the cliff and helps him up]
Dwalin: I thought we’d lost our burglar.
Thorin: He’s been lost ever since he left home. He should never have come. He has no place amongst us.
[Bilbo looks visibly hurt by this comment]
Thorin: Dwalin!
[Thorin makes his way inside a cave]


[checking the cave inside the mountain]
Dwalin: It looks safe enough.
Thorin: Search to the back, caves in the mountains are seldom unoccupied.
[after checking further into the cave]
Dwalin: There’s nothing here.
[the other dwarves enter the cave]
Gloin: Right then, let’s get a fire started.
Thorin: No. No fires. Not in this place. Get some sleep, we start at first light.
Balin: We were to wait in the mountains until Gandalf joined us. That was the plan.
Thorin: Plans change. Bofur, take the first watch.


[Azog and his orcs hunt for the dwarves on their wargs]
Azog: [subtitled] The scent is fresh! They have taken the mountain pass.
[they continue on their wargs]


[back in the cave, as all the dwarves sleep Bilbo starts packing and as he’s about to sneak off Bofur catches him]
Bofur: Where do you think you’re going?
Bilbo: Back to Rivendell.
Bofur: No. No. No. You can’t turn back, now. You’re part of the company. You’re one of us.
Bilbo: I’m not though, am I? Thorin said I should never have come, and he was right.
I’m not a Took, I’m a Baggins, I don’t know what I was thinking. I should’ve never run out the door.
Bofur: You’re homesick, I understand.
Bilbo: No, you don’t! You don’t understand, none of you do, you’re dwarves! You’re used to…to this life, to living on the road, never settling in one place, not belonging anywhere!
[realizing what he’s just said]
Bilbo: I’m sorry. I didn’t…
Bofur: No, you’re right. We don’t belong anywhere.
[nearby Thorin overhears all this as he lies in his sleeping place]
Bofur: I wish you all the luck in the world. I really do.
[he pats Bilbo on the shoulder and as Bilbo turns to leave, Bofur notices Bilbo’s sword glowing]
Bofur: What’s that?
[Bilbo takes his sword out and sees that it’s glowing blue, which means orcs are near, at the same time Thorin sees the floor of the cave begin to crack]
Thorin: Wake up. Wake up!
[suddenly the ground cracks, tips and slides everyone off into a cavern, where they are set upon by goblins and taken prisoner, as the dwarves are being hauled away, the goblins pass by Bilbo, not noticing him, he hides and watches the dwarves being taken away and then he follows them quietly with his sword drawn, suddenly a rogue goblin attacks him and as they fight they fall off the bridge and down into the deep cavern]
