    If, someday, you had a chance to make THE HOBBIT, what things would you include into the plot, design, etc?

    I would make a part for Radagast :faceit: to play. and I would make the Great Goblin completely different than anything seen in LOTR. Sort of a orcish buddah physically maybe, or like a hoary old warrior king. :balrog:

    It would be hard to make the HOBBIT like lotr yet completely different. It would need a different approach to make it more fairy-tale-ish and less war-movie-ish. your thoughts?

    I'd try to use everything in the book, and do it as a TV miniseries (maybe on HBO, none of the free networks could afford it), later released on DVD of course. I think the Hobbit is very episodic and so it'd fit a series better than a movie.

    i have just started to read the hobbit for about the tenth time, and I don't know why, but it is probably my favorite tolkien book...i don't know what i would put in the movie/miniseries though.

    Yeah they were kind of catchy Bard, but in the movie it would be gay.

    i love those catchy "gay" songs, but it would be nice as a mini series if i had a FREE channel that would make it, or a nice 4-8 hour long movie..

    I'd go for the movie . . . I don't like the idea of the Hobbit as a TV series, too much of the story would have to be changed. )Hey they might take out the gay songs then j/k(
