Book vs, Films

I realize that you might be working more off the Peter Jackson films than on Tolkien's The Lord of the Rins, so I took another look at the end of Jackson's Return of the King.
- The final scenes take place four years after Frodo was wounded on Weathertop, instead of three years after as in the book. But in the legendarium the Ring-bearers left in the year 1421 (Shire Reckoning); in the film it is probably S.R. 1405,

- Elanor (Alexandra Astin) is still Sam and Rosie's oldest but she is older, not an infant. Baby Gamgee (Maisie McLeod-Riera) isn't identified by name, but could be meant to be either young Frodo or young Rose as their second-born (though neither should have been born yet according to the genealogies).

- Celeborn seems to have boarded the ship to Valinor with the Ring-bearers, though since this is said in the film to be the 'Last Ship' it's not that big of a difference.

Rough Timeline of Peter Jackson's War of the Ring:
Year -- Event
3000 -- September 22: Bilbo's farewell party.
3001 -- Frodo and Sam set out for Rivendell in the autumn. October 25: The Council of Elrond.
3002 -- January: Gandalf falls in Moria. February: The Fellowship is broken. March: The Battle of the Hornburg; the Battle of the Pelennor Fields; the Ring is destroyed in Mount Doom. May: The crowning of King Elessar; the wedding of Elessar and Arwen. The Hobbits arrive home in the autumn, a year to the day after setting out.
3003 -- May 1: Samwise Gamgee marries Rose Cotton.
3004 -- March 25: Birth of Elanor the Fair, daughter of Samwise.
3005 -- Birth of Sam's second child. Bilbo and Frodo depart over the Sea with the Three Keepers and Celeborn.
