Frodo IS coming back to Middle-earth and we know HOW

Frodo is coming back

Elijah Wood had better start letting the fur on the tops of his feet grow again. it has been confirmed by EW that the 29-year-old actor will reprise his role as Frodo Baggins in director Peter Jackson’s long-awaited adaptation of The Hobbit. Though Frodo is a central character in J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings books and Jackson’s film adaptations, he doesn’t actually appear in Tolkien’s original Hobbit book, which takes place a good many years before the events of the Rings trilogy. But according to the official fan site TheOneRing.Net, plans are for Frodo (who is the nephew of Hobbit hero Bilbo Baggins) to appear at the beginning of each of the two installments of The Hobbit as a sort of framing device for the narrative. As we’ve already seen from the return of Cate Blanchett as Galadriel — who also doesn’t appear in Tolkien’s original Hobbit tale – Jackson clearly seems comfortable taking a few liberties with his adaptation, like he did with The Lord of the Rings.
