But then people will say...ei, why didnt they just drop them at the mountain? Just a 15 minute flight..
But i disagree with daniel...i still think you might be thinking in terms of book length...
Feel...dont think...use your instincts....let your imagination flow...
The Shire and Rivendell sequences will by far be some of the longest! A lot happens!
Pj needs to introduce the shire to the audience in a different way than he did on lotr...establish Bilbo's character, his role as a respectable hobbit within the hobbiton society, Gandalfs arrival, his attempts to kidnapp bilbo XD, the arrival of the dwarves, comedy, dinner, singing, dark business, flashbacks to dwarven history like erebor or dales fall or how thorin put tpgether this particular group of dwarves...
Contract, conversations, the next morning, his encounter with the dwarves, the journey begins, bilbos first travelling experiences with camp fire, horse riding, getting to know the dwarves, travelling through the shire, outskirts of Bree, the weather hills, establishing the bilbo and thorins initial role within the company and theri relationship, the dwarves telling bilbo tales of old....its a lot of stuff before trollshaws...
And, since pj is not good at making short movies
