How I want the beginning of The Hobbit to unravel... Can't Post

Well, for the past months I was brainstorming on how I personally want the beginning of The Hobbit to play out...

What if, we are presented with the world of creationism (the first part from The Silmarillion, Ainulindalė and Valaquenta) Just like in The Lord of the Rings, we would have sequences of short intercepting narratives of how Middle-Earth was created; and the races subsequently... specifically concentrating on the hobbits (having in mind that the trilogy is called The Hobbit) We would have glimpses of the Holy Ones, the first elves, the dwarves etc.

This would be maybe the initial set up for a possible future Silmarillion adaptation. This sort of pre-prologue would be narrated by Bilbo Baggins (because he is a hobbit and once again, the movie is called The Hobbit) disclosing Frodo of this myth of creation. He then goes on telling Frodo of the adventure at hand as the movie opens up completely.

Mind, this is not how I THINK the movie will begin, but how I would like for it to begin. Maybe it is too far fetched for Peter having in mind that he is not keen on seeing magic in its full form (thus there might be a challenge to present the creationism as real as it can be)

How do you want the beginning to (prologue) to play out? Should there be a link to The Silmarillion in some way?

Pippin: I didn't think it would end this way.
Gandalf: End? No, the journey doesn't end here. Death is just another path... One that we all must take. The grey rain-curtain of this world rolls back, and all turns to silver glass... And then you see it.
Pippin: What? Gandalf?... See what?
Gandalf: White shores... and beyond, a far green country under a swift sunrise.
Pippin: [smiling] Well, that isn't so bad.
Gandalf: [softly] No... No it isn't.
