I believe that every part of The Hobbit will begin with a prologue narration by old Bilbo. [In reply to] Can't Post

I believe that it is important to integrate the Necromancer in the story of the dwarves properly, in order to avoid a disjointed feel between Gandalf's own adventure and what Bilbo and the Company are doing, there needs to be a sense of connection between the two storylines. Because of this, we need every contact point that Sauron could possibly have with dwarves. With this in mind, I would like to believe that the prologue could be about the Dwarven Rings, how Sauron gave them to the dwarves but failed to control them, and was always at war against them since, trying to get them back, how he sent dragons to conquer their hoards and the Rings were lost until only Thrain's remained, and how he is now lost, as well.

I don't expect to see forging of the Rings, ofcourse, we already got a glimpse of that in the LotR. But Durin III receiving one of them? It's very possible, I think. It's about the only canonical time that Sauron interacted directly with dwarves, besides what happened to Thrain, making it a very important connection between the two sides of the story.

I'm really uncertain of how PJ is going to handle Thrain's storyline in the altered timeline of the films, but I don't think that he'd reduce all of what happened to Thrain to a mere prologue. I think that we need to see Thorin's reactions in person if/when he finds out what happened to his father and in what circumstances Gandalf got the map and the key. It is possible that in this version Gandalf may have resqued Thrain from danger after/during the Battle of Ananulbizar and he gave him those things for safekeeping before heading off and getting eventually captured (by the Nazgűl, Azog, or the Necromancer himself?). But this is all just completely blind speculation.
