The second film covers the period between the Hobbit proper and the beginning of LOTR. Frodo gradually emerges in that period.

Thanks for the information. So the movie company will be inventing new scenes to make that transition. I suppose it's the movie-way to dealing with other people's art.

‘The second film covers the period between the Hobbit proper and the beginning of LOTR. Frodo gradually emerges in that period.’

The Second film does not cover ‘the period between the Hobbit proper and the beginning of LOTR’. That idea was discarded. The second film will cover the second half of the Hobbit book, and both films will include material from the appendices of LOTR regarding ‘The White Council’ and the defeat of the Witch King, and some other matters. Frodo will not be in the story.

There will be a short ‘framing story’ regarding the creation of ‘The Red Book of Westmarch’. Frodo will be in that, and maybe old Bilbo too.
