Well, here it is [In reply to] Can't Post

I think cameos for Legolas are to be expected. He is centuries old and would certainly have been in his Father's court. Gimli could be present at the battle, but not needed.

Definitely: Mckellan and Hugo Weaving, as well as Serkis. (But this time Ian has to put vanity aside and let them do the beard, at least down to his navel. Gandalf's description in The Hobbit is clarion).

Christopher Lee and Kate Blanchett MUST return for council scenes. Also Glorfindel Must be added, if only to make up for how badly they disrespected him in LOTR, allowing Arwen to take EVERYTHING from him. He was a much more pivotal character to me than Haldir, yet Haldir pops up in two of the films and Glorfindel has to be sought out in a procession (actually, unitl they put out a card for who played him in that non-speaking cameo, I decided for myself that he was the longer haired elf at the council in LOTR lol).

Lee and Howe should return, but I would also like to see Ted Nasmith, and especially MICHAEL HAGUE! I like Howe's and Nasmith's elves much better than Hague's, but Hague's illustrated Hobbit was definitive for years, and his depections of the shire, and certain scenes with Gandalf and the Dwarves were magnificent.

As Peter has had no problem expanding and contracting roles before, and as Balin's reord mentions the "Shadow" moving in the dark, I would love, in film two, to see The Balrog employ his sorcery against Balin's colony, and command the orcs against them. The Balrogs were to Melkor what the Nazgul were to Sauron, his chief servants and the high-captains of his legions. The witchcraft of the one in Moria is spelled out by Gandalf concerning the door of Marzabul chamber, so Id love to see him shown as more than a beastly brute.

And finally. . . lets see Gandalf's magic AS THE BOOK DESCRIBES IT. Yes, he can fight, but he is a WIZARD, Peter, not a ninja, and he has a paramount aptitude for fire magic. At the end of the Hobbit films, I should not have to say that Rankin/Bass did a better job of displaying Gandalf's power in their Hobbit cartoon film.

"Hear me, hounds of Sauron, Gandalf is here! Fly if you value your foul skins, I will shrivel you from tail to snout if you step within this circle!"

"Do not be to eager to deal out death in judgement. Even the very wise cannot see all ends."
