Ideally? Yes, probably. [In reply to] Can't Post

Of course, Peter Jackson did try to make The Hobbit first, but was foiled by a complication in who controlled the film rights at that time. That Hobbit would have been a very different project from the trilogy that starts with An Unexpected Journey. I also imagine that it would have been a single film, condensing and compressing elements from the book, with little or no chance of unexpected cameos from Legolas, a young Aragorn, Arwen or the White Council (not that Arwen or 'Estel' seem to be in the Hobbit films that we are getting). The casating would have to have been a bit different too. Martin Freeman would have been ten years younger. Perhaps Dominic Monaghan, Billy Boyd or Sean Astin would have been cast as Bilbo Baggins. John Rhys-Davies as Thorin? Who knows?
