Would the depth of this tale tell a great story in movie form (provided Peter Jackson has nothing to do with it). Just a thought.

I love it! You'd have to begin with some of the backstory - The childhoods of each one, the odd fact that Aragorn knew nothing of Arwen's existence until he was grown - LOTS of interesting relational twists and turns. [] Let me know when you have your first draft ready. []

The Tale of Aragorn and Arwen has always been my favorite part of the appendices. [] Of course, we’d have to go off-Tolkien quite a bit to make a full-length film. But nonetheless we could stay true to the intent of his work. We could follow a young Estel as he traveled with Elladan and Elrohir. Or Thorondil’s exploits as he served King Thengel and Steward Ecthelion II. (Here no doubt, the director, whoever he/she may be would of necessity insert some heroic battles. [] ) His meeting with Gandalf could be interesting – maybe some small talk over a flagon , turning into a life-long friendship.

As for Arwen, we would, of course, have the love story. (Keep it fairly short! Today’s audiences want action. [] ) But now some great directorial/script writer imagination is needed. What might be the daily activities to the ‘immortal’ Half-elven be where twenty years is as twenty hours. After all “Tra-la-la-lally” can only go so far… []
