But Harfoots are not the ancestors of hobbits. They are one of the three original groups, none of which, as far as I know, predate any other.

Amazon, Warner Bros in Talks for LOTR Series Adaptation: Variety - Page 13 Unnamed

{{ My crabbit doesnt really know where to start with this! Mad The artificial, terrible lighting and colour grading? The ridiculous costumes made from what looks like straw? The kids at the back like extras in a school nativity play? Lenny Henry as a hobbit with the entirely made up excuse that he is a Harfoot and they were ancestors of hobbits (?) except Harfoots are just one of the three main breeds/tribes of hobbits who all ended up in the Shire- there are Harfoots in Bilbo and Frodo's time, they are in fact the most common type of hobbit in the Shire, Sam's one - so what does this suggest? - that at some point in their history while moving westwards across the mountains and founding the Shire the white Harfoots hobbits or one of the other two tribes purged all the blacks ones? How does this work? They are sort of trying to make it look and feel like PJ's version, but at the same time not? I mean if you are doing a prequel to a story that a lot of your audience only ever know from PJ's films then wouldnt you want to make it fit that version? And if its not anything to do with Pj's why make a prequel? Thats beside all the obvious reasons for why black hobbits in NW ME doesn't fit or make any geographical or cultural sense. }}

The image of the Harfoots reminds me of Elsa Beskow's illustrations.
Not quite what I would have expected from Hobbits tho.

those drawings would never say "hobbit" to me.

Why are they socially distanced in that feast photo?

It is important to impliment modern things, so it might be an important meeting concerning how to protect their people from the... man flu.

Personally they never give orcs fangs, they should have fangs, and drool, and they are never hairy enough, hairy backs, chests and shoulders, short bristly, like the worst shave stubble ever and I'm not a fan of the armour. It looks like bone and lizard skin, or crocodile or something. But one of the things about orcs, one of the commentaries Tolkien makes about 'orc minds' is they work in iron and steel, industry in its worse most functional forms. }}

those hats are stupid.

I've seen cartoon orcs that come closer to what I think Tolkien imagined (though I can'f find any examples that work for me - most that come close ruin it by being too muscled) But I think for budgetary reasons the films didn't go there: too much CGI needed. Prosthetics would not look real.

{{ They are closer to how goblins/orc types are portrayed in D&D and video games- where they were trying to use Tolkiens orcs but without 'officially' using them. Orc-like, but not actually orcs.
For me orcs should be pretty varied in sizes, but the soldiery should generally either be shortish, squat, broad, short and hairy basically, with long ape like arms, with fangs and drool, and alongside them the skinny, wiry, type- like the wee guy everyone underestimates cause hes so thin but it turns out all to be muscle like knotted steel wire.
I imagine orcs like Shagrat, in high up more cushy jobs commanding a defensive border tower he'd be an example of a fatter orc, as he'd get all the best stuff and abuse his position as he's an orc, so of course he would.
And of course there also appear to be some specific breeds bred for particular purposes, like the 'sniffer' orcs for tracking people.
But all orcs are known for being good at industry, its just its the burn all the trees for the fires, choke the place with black smoke belching out chimneys, poison the waters type industry- but their armour should reflect the fact thats what they do, they are good at it, they make very effective tools and weapons, it just the aim of it all is to destroy and kill and maim and harm, and nothing else. They in part represent the dark side of industry and advancement.}}
