  •  I would have liked to have seen (13+ / 0-)

    Bilbo telling the tale in his own words (the child-like way he wrote it (and the opening chapters of Lord of the Rings) in the Red Book of Westmarch), and seeing an initial depiction of Bilbo's "The Hobbit" and then to see it morph into the 'real' events.

    (In my mind, "There and Back Again: A Hobbit's Tale", "The Lord of the Rings and the Return of the King" were written by Bilbo, Frodo (with the change in tone of TLotR around the time that Aragorn and the hobbits meet up with the Nazgul at Weathertop), and Samwise (the tone changes again on Frodo and Bilbo's last journey to the Havens).)  

    At least one appendix was written by Merry ("Concerning Pipeweed").
