corniness has its limits.. not even pj would go that far !!!
To bring back Frodo, Legolas and Galadhriel seems unnecessary. Legolas I might understand, being portrayed shortly in a fleeting sense as he has no role in The Hobbit - but the rest? Fanboy pleasing.
...or directors framing! with Frodo PJ is doing nearly the same as he did in LOTR with Bilbo. Let someone tell the story from a viewbackperspective. maybe unnecessary but in terms of cinematography acceptable.fanboy pleasing
Legolas is a prince of the Woodland realm and since the Dwarves were dealing with the Elven King and his kingly halls it is only logical that Legolas has a part in it!
And Galadriel is indeed part of the White Council, and if you want the hobbit movies to cover also the White Council-Dol Guldur affair, she needs to be in!!!
To me therefore only Frodo is farfetched, although it might even come out nicely in the movies (I didn't hear anyone complaining about Bilbo writing in his book in the Lord of the Rings). Legolas and Galadriel make sense.
I just hope PJ keeps Aragorn and any other "unlawful" cameo out of this!!!

aragorn did "the hunt for gollum" in the meantime ..when gandalf left the dwarves and bilbo went to find the white council ,but also aragorn..or not ?
Considering that all the Middle-Earthians have pretty neutral American accents throughout the LOTR-trilogy
You might want to travel a bit and update yourself on how the British accent sounds like.

Oh, Frodo is a narrator? Well... sure.
I might be wrong, it was a while since I watched the movies. I only remember Gandalf having a british accent and perhaps Aragorn as well. Come to think of it, I should've read up on everything before writing my post at all.You might want to travel a bit and update yourself on how the British accent sounds like.

Yeah the people in the movies speak mostly british english (even the american ones like Elijah Wood), Tolkien was a brit after all. Oh and the orcs speak the traditional universally accepted orc speech: Cocney.
I just hope they will leave Gimli, Legolas and all the other LOTr characters out.

For Legolas to stay at home when his father march to war? Doesn't seem his kind of gig. *
Tolkien btw loves to let rulers bring their heirs into fights/tight spots, so his participation would be likely from that perspective too
*Edit: That Legolas never mentions that he was at the battle of 5 of course spekas against it. But at any rate he can be placed at Thandruils halls without any fuss, though make him to important for the main plot would be a loss.
To put him in Mirkwood and Battle of 5' would be smart from a movie and audience perspective, the films aint made for lore-fans but for anybody who likes the LotR film triology.

legolas + female elf trainee = love4ever
:/ as stupid as it sounds i'm afraid it's really possible..the hobbit,the bold and the beautiful lol
Frodo will be a pert of the introduction writing or telling the story. I love that. I mean, why not? It makes an awesome bridge between the trilogy and the Hobbit.
Legolas also fits in neatly, and I don't mind the occasional acrobatics either, its what defined the character and made him unique, just like Gimli's humour. The hobbit is all about Dwarves and Elves though, while the original was more about Men. So we'll see others from those races with different personalities and agendas. For example I doubt Thorin or Dain will be very "Funny" or if we will see the Elven king surf on top of eagles while shooting his bow.
frodo would actually fit in just fine..
they could use him really well..
-or as narrator after he got the red book from bilbo
- or just as short cameos in an intro ,before bilbo departured for his quest
-or after bilbo returned (flasbacking) and narrated his adventures to him and the other hobbits (if i'm not mistaken,,they did know what those trolls turned to stone that they encountered in lotr were about..)
No he does not because he is an instantly sympathetic character and that disrupts the narrative flow of the elves being prats at best and serious dicks until they help the lake men refugees.Legolas also fits in neatly

But if the cause be not good, the king himself hath a heavy reckoning to make, when all those legs and arms and heads, chopped off in battle, shall join together at the latter day and cry all 'We died at such a place; some swearing, some crying for surgeon, some upon their wives left poor behind them, some upon the debts they owe, some upon their children rawly left.
He was 23 (60 years after the hobbit he was 83)no, the hunt for gollum was during the Lord of the Rings already. Iirc Aragorn was still an infant at the time of the Hobbit!
IMHO the movie should be treated as if they were made BEFORE the trilogy.
Aragorn was born in TA 2931.
Bilbo Baggins left the Shire in TA 2941 and returned in TA 2942.
