Wraith Wins December 2023 FEOTM


The winner for December 2023 FEOTM is Wraith with their edit, The Hobbit Legendary Edit: A Lord of the Rings Prequel.


“Derived from my unrealeased Book Edit, It took nearly 4 years and 1500 changes completed in 2017. This further iteration takes the changes to over 2000 despite being shorter than my two part edits. I have made further refinements to it reducing the run time from 4hrs 10 mins to 3hrs 56 mins. These new refinements include more micro edits, further removal of humor and scoring additions, to name a few. Some major requequening also makes this more consistent with LOTR. This edit differs to most because a lot of micro edits that clean up character and performance have been made. Non book elements were retained provided they appear in the appendices of The Lord of the Rings. None of the retained additions are inconsistent with the books or the wider narratives. There are so many tweaks, new flashbacks, new openings and endings to both films and so much more.”


Congratulations, Wraith!
