They can't invent everyting out of thin air, a lot of these toys will be in the movies. Some not but most probably will. I always wondered how they'd deal with Beorn and his shapeshifting abilities....

I think the staffs were given to the istari as a way for them to channel some of their inner power. Remember they weren't allowed to use their full power output against Sauron. The staffs were...

I have always found the rings to be quite dull and uninteresting in the Tolkien mythology. However I do wonder if invisibility was given to every race that wore Sauron's ring. Gollum, Bilbo and Frodo...

If I'd be Gandalf I would take the form of a young woman. Like after having spent some thousand years as an old man it would be nice to try something different. :D

Nature/Industry - Tolkien

It's quite obvious reading the lord of the rings and other Tolkien books that he had great admiration for trees and nature and considered "the machine" a sort of anti nature thing. One of the reasons...

I think if he had to include any of that it would be interesting to maybe see Gollum captured in Mirkwood together with the dwarves. Gollum contrasted with elves would be interesting to see, his...

I don't think a goat would be too far fetched, but a pig? Maybe boars but there is really no way they'd be able to tame boars. Joke it must be.

Yeah so one can imagine what a big honour it was for Bilbo, Frodo and Gimli to go there. As far as I know the only non elves who has been there.

Well thing is, there is no argument. People who still believe that any of their holy books are true, are by definition ignorant. This debate on wether or not god exists was settled a long time ago....
