Only technically he doesnt have that right. The goal of these movies was to be as perfect to the literature as could possibly be. Which is what was produced for the theater and ee versions completed in 02 or 03 as it were. He was not the director of this project to inject his own interpretations and revise the literature. He was used to direct because of his ultimate knowlede and love for the written word of Tolkien.
