This story is not about Gandalf. [In reply to] Can't Post

As he said at the beginning of FotR (movie) he "merely gave Bilbo a nudge out the door". Readers of The Hobbit aren't assumed to know any background, and movie viewers need none. IMO the best approach is simply some pans around Hobbiton (as in the "concerning hobbits" section of FotR), maybe some shots of Bilbo leading his uneventful life, and then Gandalf arrives with the dwarves.

If the rumored 'second movie' is intended as more of an LotR prequel, it can deal with the Necromancer and Dol Guldur and the White Council and all that, they don't belong in "The Hobbit".
