There is plenty of time. [In reply to] Can't Post

I think PJ said that there would an opportunity to realize Gandalf's story as he disappears
from Bilbo and the Dwarves around the time that DoS starts, I think. That means there is plenty of
time for him to cross over the mountains and investigate the high fells. I don't think it will
show him recrossing the mountains, as that's not the point, but i think it was the original intent
for bilbo and thorin to cross over the mountains, but in taking refuge in the cave, they got ambushed
and taken inside the mountain to the Goblin King. So it is possible that Gandalf could go back and forth
easily enough, over the mountains.

I don't think the high fells necessarily has to be a flashback or occur between WC and Goblintown, although it makes
sense that gandalf would aid the party across the moutains and then take leave for the assault on Dol Goldur which is also
on the same side of the mountains. But it's been shown in the past that Gandalf can get around. For instance, in fotr, Gandalf
rides to Minas Tirith to scour the archives for his suspicions. In the book, this may have occurred over many years but the
film has no need to emphasize timing or logistics per se. years could have easily haved passed in the film as well, but the point
is well taken that Gandalf travels and reaches the destination he needs to be to conduct his research. I see the High Fells in a
similar light. Gandalf didn't teleport himself to these areas, the story merely presumes that the journey to the place had to have taken
time and energy, it just doesn't show it. Thus, I think it is a possibility that Gandalf leaves the party and goes to the fells in present time.
what you think?
