Radagast scenes should've been combined

Radagast scenes should've been combined Can't Post

While it was essential to show how Radagast came to discover the Necromancer, it was excessive to show him trying to revive his hedgehog while hiding from the spiders.

Also, we get this moment of intrigue and seriousness that is broken by the unceremonious reveal that he has freaking rabbits pulling his sleigh. The quirky element of the rabbits clashes with the importance of the situation.

These two points could've been eliminated by merging the Dol Goldur scene with his introduction

Here:
Radagast arrives upon the Company as in the film. Gandalf says "this is Radagast" etc, etc. Radagast narrates as we see him finding the dead animals and spiders and following the bird to their source. Cue Dol Goldur sequence.

This would've taken the baggage off the absurdity of the Bunny Sleigh, as we would have been introduced to it before he told his story. Thus, when it shows him jump over the hill in it, we're focusing not on the fact that there are rabbits pulling a sleigh, but that he's on a mission.
