Welcome, and great question! [In reply to] Can't Post

In a world where LOTR was not yet made, I have to believe that The Hobbit would be a single movie. No White Council, no Necromancer, just the book. After all, it was everything they could do to get even a two-movie treatment of LOTR greenlighted to begin with.

Some might say that's bad, some might say that's good. I for one, would not mind a more canon-like single Hobbit movie. But I reserve final judgement on that until I see the movie(s) we've got coming up. If Jackson nails the White Council/Necromancer/early Dwarf-goblin war threads like he might, then I'm 100% behind the way things happened now. But if he bollixes the whole bit like they did parts of LOTR, then I'll always regret that we didn't get the Hobbit first and a more Tolkien-like LOTR trilogy.

Happiness: money matters, but less than we think and not in the way that we think. Family is important and so are friends, while envy is toxic -- and so is excessive thinking. Beaches are optional. Trust is not. Neither is gratitude. - The Geography of Bliss by Eric Weiner as summarized by Lily Fairbairn. And a bit of the Hobbit reading thrown in never hurts. - NottaSackville
