Incredible work again by James The Tolkienist. A huge amount of work went into this post, and it is worth reading. Warning: Sheer Geekicity here.
Perhaps one of the most striking “differences” people noticed when seeing An Unexpected Journey for the first time, was the overall “brightness” and “colour” compared to that of The Lord of the Rings.
By colour palette I mean the overall scheme of colours in the film – the dominating tones in every scene.
There are two things I see behind such a stark contrast:
1) This is a younger, less evil Middle-earth.
2) The story of The Hobbit is not the same as The Lord of the Rings.
