  • Younger version of Gollum played by Channing Tatum
  • A well-placed record-scratch sound effect after Gandalf proposes Bilbo as key member of the expedition
  • Bilbo is forced to challenge Gollum to a game of one-on-one basketball

  • Bilbo’s hobbit-hole has wall-to-wall carpeting
  • Casting of actual wizards instead of actors playing wizards
