Salvo probabili interventi esterni, il film unico di circa quattro ore è scaricabile da questo link. Lo spirito che ha animato questo lavoro, che probabilmente molti fan avrebbero auspicato nella versione de Lo Hobbit firmata Peter Jackson, è descritta dallo stesso autore: «My main goals in undertaking this edit were to re-centre the story on Bilbo, and to have the narrative move at a much brisker pace (though not so fast that the audience lost grasp of what was going on). Creating smooth transitions between scenes was of particular importance in this regard. I even reordered a few moments in the film to make it flow better. The toughest parts to edit were the barrel-ride and the fight on Ravenhill (since Legolas and Tauriel kept bursting in with their gymnastics routine). If you have any further questions over what was taken out and what was left in, please post them in the comment’s section».
