Jackson is allowed to show Gandalf meeting with Thorin in Bree... [In reply to] Can't Post

This meeting is mentioned in "Durin's Folk" in the LotR appendices, so there's no reason for Jackson to have to dance around that. There's even a small exchange of dialogue between Gandalf and Thorin that Jackson could use.

I'm perplexed as to how they are going to handle Thrain here. Firstly, Balin seemed to state that Thrain went missing directly after the Battle of Azanulbizar, so I see it as unlikely that Gandalf will meet Thrain in Bree. Second, Gandalf seemingly has not yet explored Dol Guldur. It's possible he did, and found it abandoned, but then where did he get the map and key from Thrain? Did Gandalf meet Thrain BEFORE the Battle of Azanulbizar, or did he find Thrain in Moria, and not mention it to Thorin? Very very confusing stuff, I hope Jackson has thought this out properly.
