If Lord of the Rings were directed by Disney Can't Post

Given the front page storey, how about a rendition of 'If Lord of the Rings (or the Hobbit) was directed by ...' with Disney being the studio of the moment?

A few ideas:

Arwen sings to her squirrel and bird friends about how much she wants to marry a king.

Bifur Bofur and Bombur replaced with Happy Grumpy and Dopey.

Instead riding Eagles, Frodo and Sam escape Mt Doom by putting on Flubberized shoes and bouncing out of Mordor.

Inferno.

Suggestion inspired by your avatar.... [In reply to] Can't Post

They could replace Legolas by Merida. Would develop all sorts of synergies between Disney properties, and add a strong female character to Rings. Wink

Aragorn... [In reply to] Can't Post

...would have perfect hair.

Bill the Pony would have an expressive personality.

The Watcher in the Woods would be an evil stepmother.

And the Balrog scene would play Night on Bald Mountain.

Eowyn wouldn't be able to tell Aragorn she loves him [In reply to] Can't Post

as she traded her voice for a horse and sword to get out of Meduseld.

Bill the Pony joins the Fellowship after his mother was shot by a hunter.

Gandalf escapes from Orthanc via flying carpet.

Sauron expresses his desire for the One Ring by breaking into song - his Orcs do a nifty dance number behind him.

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauron’s master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

To add onto this... [In reply to] Can't Post

Aragorn and Legolas would be stepsisters (brothers) arguing over who has the better hair. Legolas would be snooty and Aragorn would be whiny.

The Ring is an enchanted object [In reply to] Can't Post

So, naturally, the Ring can sing. So can the talking purse, btw. I can't wait for their duo number!

Asfolath rolls his (her?) eyes at Arwen's jokes.

Tauriel runs away from her father (the King) after an argument and finds herself at a cottage in the woods full of dwarfs.

Saruman poisons one of Pippin's apples.

Speaking of Saruman, since he lives in a tower is he in need of a prince to rescue him?

Perfect! [In reply to] Can't Post

Especially the one about Bill.

I'll add one: Arwen would fall asleep until her true love breaks the spell (oh wait...)

"...not till now have I understood the tale of your people and their fall. As wicked fools I scorned them, but I pity them at last. For if this is indeed, as the Eldar say, the gift of the One to Men, it is bitter to receive." -Arwen

You would be made to think the main character had died but miraculously comes back. Oh wait...
They’ll probably find a magic lamp in Smaug’s gold horde.
