Brief Synopsis:
This cut removes Azog as the main villain from the story. The side quests are also gone and the main focus remains on Bilbo's adventure. In addition most of the over-the-top action, violence and silly moments are gone, while still providing a functioning narrative.

As the title suggests, this edit removes all the unnecessary bloat that was added to the trilogy. Clocking in at just over five hours, this film aims to be as close as possible to what Jackson would've created in the originally planned two-part saga.

Brief Synopsis:
A new edit of The Hobbit, two years in the making, inspired by the original two-film script. The first film, The Gathering of the Clouds, tells the story of Bilbo, who is whisked away on an adventure to save the homeland of a band of thirteen dwarves by Gandalf the wizard. During his travels Bilbo discovers his own resourcefulness and courage, as a plot unfolds that might affect all the lands of Middle-Earth.

The Second film, There and Back Again, sees Bilbo and his companions tested as their adventure takes an unwelcome turn. Their quest becomes entangled in a battle for the fate of Middle-Earth. And yet, the greatest dangers may lie within. This high quality edit provides a more focused telling of the classic story, with completely restructured and even partially rewritten plot lines. It is heavily inspired by Tolkien lore. Each film has a clear beginning, middle, and end, both in plot lines and character arcs. The tone is more similar to The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, and it's color correction has been completely redone to create a visually consistent, five part saga.

Brief Synopsis:
Based on "The Hobbit: Fire and Water" edit with some alternative cuts, different dynamic between Legolas-Kili-Tauriel and a lot less Laketown. Like "Fire and Water", this edit also aims not to show connection between Sauron and Bilbo's ring. This edit is followed by "The Hobbit: Battle for the Lonely Mountain".

Brief Synopsis:
There and Back again turns the three films into two volumes which focuses on Bilbo's adventure, but in context of Thorin's journey as well. Their stories are intertwined so this edit seeks to strip away as many elements as possible that interfere with their respective stories. This is not a 'book' cut that seeks to conform to the novel, so it maintains many of the added story elements that help it serve as a prequel or bridge to Jackson's Lord of the Rings trilogy, but they are reduced and tightened up so as to not interfere with the primary focus of Bilbo's journey.

Brief Synopsis:
This edit is a little under three hours. The edit is missing all of the superfluous material from the trilogy. The edit also works as a true standalone movie and prequel that does not cash in on any Lord of the Rings references that a first time viewer — given he is watching these movies in chronological order — would not know about.
This means no old Bilbo, no Sauron, no Legolas, a less menacing Ring, and no Frodo.
Needless to say there is also no love triangle.

Brief Synopsis:
I have cut over half of the cumulative running time of the films. What was once a bloated, 542-minute trilogy is now a more digestible 247-minute epic. In general, I’ve tried to keep the spirit of the book intact by removing unnecessary subplots, characters, ridiculous action scenes, and so on.

Brief Synopsis:
The Hobbit Part 2 is the sequel to The Hobbit Part 1, and it is basically part of the Desolation of Smaug and The Battle of the Five Armies, but with some differences and cuts to make a perfect continuity with The Hobbit Part 1, which I recommend you to watch before watching The Hobbit Part 2 (duh).

The main differences with the original movie are: No love triangle, which means Tauriel will not feel anything for Kili and Legolas is just a friend. Tauriel, as in the last fan edit, will be motivated by her duty of doing good and fight evil with Legolas. Tauriel will die, something they had to do since the beginning, and since she does not appear in the later movies of LOTR, this death will not affect the story. Alfrid as the comic relief was almost completely cut. Finally, the fan edit features a new and more complete ending which I created with some shots of the Fellowship of the Ring.

Also, the fan edit includes 2 DELETED SCENES from Battle of the Five Armies, which were not used neither in the Extended Edition or the Theatrical edition, including a deleted speech by Gandalf during Thorin's Funeral. These will add an emotional touch to the tone of the adventure.

Brief Synopsis:
This is a 3 film in 1 edit running at 3 hours 25 minutes. This is not intended as a "book cut" but instead tries to imagine what Peter Jackson and Co. might have made if they had decided to do the story as one film.

My goal is not to make the film more like Lord of the Rings in tone, but in spirit. The gag-filled action scenes that Peter Jackson has become fond of are minimized, except when appropriate. It feels more epic. The pacing is quicker. It feels more in line with those films, while also becoming even more different from them.

Brief Synopsis:
'The Desolation of Smaug' is the second movie in a trilogy that should never have existed. While mildly entertaining, it was overly long, with ridiculous elements not found in the original book. Instead of being created as a prequel it was conceived as a sequel to Lord of the Rings, giving it inherent issues that impeded on the literates' ability to enjoy the film.

Brief Synopsis:
No barrel gymnastics. No molten gold.

The Desolation of Smaug is Peter Jackson's adaptation of the middle third of JRR Tolkien's The Hobbit. Despite some incredible visuals and fine performances, it was too long and encumbered by many scenes that not only slowed the film, but also were completely invented for the film and deviated from the novel significantly. "Fire of the Dragon" is an earlier edit of this film, where I cut out all the extra made-up-for-the movie padding that stretched a perfectly good 2 hour movie into almost three. 'Dragon' was a version that didn't drag and had good pacing, and is what I feel the Theatrical cut should have been--I emphasize that because a lot of the material I liked from the actual movie and I felt made it entertaining (namely, the barrel fight and the dragon showdown in the end) are left intact in Dragon-- I just felt those made the movie more fun and gave it the feel of adventure it needed.

However, I strongly agree with a lot of the criticism of both the original film and my first cut, in that these things (1) were a little over-the-top at times, and (2) still never happened in the book. So I decided to go ahead and make further changes to produce a "purist cut" of the movie. Instead of just being a watered down version of "Dragon", I trimmed more, reordered certain scenes, and made a new opening for it, as well as a new title.

This is as close as Desolation comes to being a 'book' cut of Tolkien's the Hobbit.

Brief Synopsis:
This is the lean version which retains all the greatness of the movie and drops all the fluff, making it a better paced and more entertaining movie overall. Fire of the Dragon dispenses with many superfluous elements of the film like the elf-dwarf love triangle, the dwarves being left behind in Laketown, the orc assault on Laketown, as well as any other deviations from the main narrative.
