I think it ended completely due to copyright issues. However they were bored senseless hanging around all the time during Help! and they had done the film scene.

I really tried to read TLOTR series but after 100 pages of endless description with little happening, they were in the forest still, i gave up. Tried the movies and was even more bored. Interest dead.

One thing that always interests me is that if the Beatles had done a 3rd film in 1966 i dont think we would have got Revolver.  Instead of spending those months filming, time that Brian scheduled for, the Beatles got a very long break from recording, touring and doing the beatle thing and were able to take in what was happening, experiment at home, and have a long rest. According to Mark Lewisohn between 13th December and the beginning of the Revolver sessions on 6th April they had only 2 engagements; overdubbing the Shea Stadium soundtrack and recording an interview for the new half owned Epstein publication Disc and Music Echo.

 

Getting back on topic according to Peter Jackson it was Tolkien who killed the idea. And found this website which discusses rejected projects for the Beatles 3rd film. (You should read the comment credited to John regarding the Jungle Book project.)

(Its pouring down outside with thunder and lightning so i have free time to spend.)

This week's Beatles Rarity focused on this would-be project. The thought boggles my mind if only for the fact Paul is one of the worst actors ever.

As I was describing this to a friend and going through the proposed casting, she said, "And what would George have been? A tree?" Now I can't get the voice of George as an Ent out of my head. :-P

Check out my fan video for Paul's song "Appreciate" at Vimeo or YouTube.
