Using Mana Island as a background
Michael Martinez over at Xenite’s Tolkien forum wrote us his thoughts about why the film might want to use Island as a backdrop, if indeed that’s what was happening at Titahi Bay last week.
“Going by the literary story I would say there are only three possibilities:
1) Tol Brandir. I consider this unlikely.
2) Tolfalas. Possible, but nothing in the literary story occurs there.
3) Tol Eressea. Frodo sees it at the end, and in a dream in Bombadil’s house.
My guess is they are using it for Tol Eressea, probably for the end of the third film.”Posted in Old Main News on September 27, 2000 by Tehanu
