"The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring" (2001) - Deleted opening scene

You know that the first film of "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy starts with prologue, where the story of the rings is told, and then we see Gandalf the Grey, who arrives in The Shire, meets Frodo and visits Bilbo.

This deleted scene shows that "The Fellowship of the Ring" might have started with Bilbo Baggins' short story about the Hobbits, their lifestyle and habits. I find this opening very interesting and amusing, because there wasn't much time for those great ancient race to be on the screen. And Hobbiton is a very beautiful place indeed.

I can only imagine how hard it was for Peter Jackson to choose between those two great opening scenes.
