haha. Maybe those people were talking about 'The Hobbit'. I'd like to see a three-hour version of it with Ian McKellan, Andy Serkis and possibly Holm. We could even see a very young child Aragorn in Rivendell, who Elrond is looking after, when Bilbo passes through there.

Wouldn't Aragorn be 30 in the Hobbit? Or would that be 15? Hmmm the movie and book timelines have confused me.

Bilbo is 51 in the Hobbit. He's obviously 111 in the beginning of the Fellowship movie, but the rest of the quest (starting when Gandalf returns to the Shire after reading Isildor's scroll) is supposed to take place 17 years later. So if Aragorn is 87 during that time, that would make him 10 during the time of The Hobbit.

Bilbo, Gandalf, Gollum, and Elrond all appear in the Hobbit book so those same actors could resume their rolls. Characters like Arwen and Saruman were around during the time of the Hobbit so if the screenwriters wanted to write scenes for them they could.

I keep reading rumors of a hobbit movie, it would be great but IMO it wouldn't have the same "magic" if it didn't have the same actors. They'd have to do it soon though before the old ones get too old

I read the book like 10 years ago and stopped half way through cuz I got bored with it and it seemed to "kiddy" Was Aragorn even in it? And what about Gimli?

The Hobbit was a children's book (as if the beginning of LOTR up to the point where they get to Bree, where it changes to be much more serious and less about childish scheming and diversions. I still think Peter Jackson could turn it into a great movie. I don't recall there being much character overlap aside from Gandalf and Bilbo, but I think Gimli's father Gloin is in it, as is Balin (whose grave they find in Moria in FOTR).

The only characters that overlap are Bilbo, Gandalf, Elrond, Gollum and the Eagles.

The Hobbit takes place in Third Age 2941, Bilbo's 111th birthday/Frodo's 33rd (the start of LOTR) takes place in T.A. 3001. Frodo's departure from the Shire takes place in T.A. 3018, so a younger Bilbo would be appropriate. (Although PJ did not indicate the 17 year lapse between party and Frodo fleeing the Shire...)

re Hobbit:

I'd admit it would be interesting seeing Arwen (Liv Tyler) still looking exactly the same, shooing around a 10 year old Aragorn.

That would raise some eyebrows.

But, in the beginning of FotR, they show Bilbo finding the ring.. it'd be great if they could use Ian Holm as bilbo, give him a little makeup to give him a slightly younger look, and maybe even for the scene where he picks up the ring they could use the same exact footage, make it all match and stuff

Ian Holm is a really good actor, a little old in the tooth for Bilbo at 51, but I'd expect he'd still do a good job.

The real problem is that "Bilbo at 51" is like Frodo or Aragorn...


Frodo is 50 during the Lord of the Rings journey (33 at the very beginning); Aragorn is 87.

People were shocked at Aragorn's age - imagine if Frodo had said "I'm 50 years old" sometime during the ring movies.

Lets not forget the chance of Legolas making a cameo at The Battle of Five Armies. He is an elf from mirkwood anyway. So, it would make sense.

Actually, Bilbo should look a bit more middle-aged than Frodo does. The ring stops aging more or less (for a while, at least) and Bilbo got it in his 50s, while Frodo receives it at 33. Keep in mind that Bilbo wasn't supposed to reach 100, most likely, if he lived a normal Baggins lifespan.

If they were to do this movie soon, he could easily play Bilbo. Frankly, Frodo and hobbit friends are pictured as too young in the movies.
