That's what the Disney cartoon did. I'd prefer they not go back down that road again.
Aye, I acknowledge the idea lift in the thread. I don't wholly approve of the Disney movie's plot by any means, but, barring not-quite-feature length TV movie adaptations of each book, I think combining those first two stories is the best way to sell a film series.

Re: Original Lord of the Rings films?

Surprised it hasn't been mentioned yet, but Christopher Tolkien has no interest in any further LOTR movies and would shut down the existing ones if he could. When JRR sold the rights years ago, it was only to The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. If it wasn't in there (including the appendices, which is where Jackson is getting the extra Hobbit info), it cannot be used to make a movie.

Never heard of the Perumov sequel, I'll have to read up on that.

I have heard of this one and read part of it. It takes the POV that Saruman was the good guy, trying to bring progress to Middle Earth. I need to finish it sometime.

It is available for free on the internet, per the author's wishes.
