I watched a trailer for The Hobbit when I saw Dredd today and it made me a little sad to realize that this wonderful, rich universe is soon coming to an end. Two more films and then never again will we see a hobbit. Well, why? Why does it have to end here? So I've been thinking. What about continuing the franchise with completely original films set in the LOTR universe? We could have a film that chronicles the adventures of King Aragorn as he seeks to repair a broken and hostile land after the destruction wrought by Sauron or another trilogy following the adventures of Tyrande the elf as she finds herself in the middle of an Elvish civil war. Who the hell is Tyrande? Exactly. I imagine that this won't be a very popular idea, but I think it would be fantastic. We have the books for the original, unaltered storyline whenever we want, so why not let the adaptation, well, adapt it?
