Bookish Questions: Book characters left out of adaptations?



My answer for this one is super obvious for fantasy fans, and that’s Tom Bombadil from Tolkien’s first book in the Lord of the Ring series, The Fellowship of the Ring.

I’m not a die-hard LOTR fan, but I did love this character. One of my favorite scenes with Tom was when his wife Goldberry was asked who TomĀ is, and her response was simply, “he is.” This simple statement sums up his character for me and I understand why he was omitted, but I secretly hope that if The Hobbit can become three movies in and of itself, Tom might eventually get his own movie.
