Hobbit before LOTR [In reply to] Can't Post

As Jackson said in the first production video of The Hobbit, at the very begginning of the process of making films of Tolkien's work, TH was seriously considered as the first contender. However PJ was told that the rights of TH were more complex. LOTR had to be their choices.
Also, it might have weighted in the balance: PJ dreaded at that time making a film with 13 Dwarves as main characters.

@Radagast-Aiwendil That's clear to me, he shouldn't have been in the movie(s) were the Hobbit been done before. He belong to LOTR. I still think it was a mistake not to include him in a short scene with Gandalf in FOTR that could have found a place in the EE to get the sens that there is more than two Wizards (Istari) sent to Middle-Earth. Now it feels as if they've tried to amend for that previous mistake. It might be better than no Radagast at all but now there's Galadriel, Legolas, Frodo ect they've well exceded beyong the book's content in terms of character.
