Visions Of Scenes In "The Hobbit" ? Can't Post

I was wondering how many of you had thoughts about "The Hobbit" and what scenes you feel "need" to be in the film, at least in the way you imagine it.

I can't get the thought out of my head of how nicely "The Hobbit" can tie into "Lord Of The Rings" using Bilbo singing "The Road Goes Ever On And On". To me, I just start to sink into "Fellowship" when you hear Gandalf starting to hum, then sing that song. Great warm moment that sucks you into the movie.

So when I think of "The Hobbit" I"m hoping they maybe dub the song (with Bilbo's voice) as he and Gandalf head back to Hobbiton at the end with the song ending right when Bilbo arrives back at the Shire. Then everytime you pop in "Fellowship" and hear the song, you'd think back to "The Hobbit" and just instantly brings your mentally back to Middle Earth. Plus those that never read the books would then understand where the song came from as they hear Gandalf beginning the tune.

Also hoping the "backstories" will get fleshed out more - such as why Gandalf kept leaving the party to attend to other matters (driving Sauron/Necromancer out of Dol Guldor), telling why Sauron was there in the first place (rumors of the lost ring somewhere near the southern Mirkwood area?), more background on the Wizards Council (maybe introduce Radagast?), the Rangers who have been protecting the area for years, etc.. And if Peter Jackson gets to make this movie, then I'm certain all this will be addressed - and appropriately.

Let's also hope the recent comments and "quiet" end up being a positive thing regarding Jackson's chances of making "The Hobbit".

Anybody else with ideas they just "gotta see"?

    I think the approach should be very Hobbit-oriented - and perhaps Tolkien-oriented (like Princess Bride) squire Send a private message to squire Aug 5 2007, 4:25am
