If it were just a case of a small side story showing a few small people staying out of the way and disappearing, that could possibly work. But they aren't hiring SIR Lenny Henry to stay out of the way and disappear.

Maybe a framing story? Somehow?
His philosophy was a mixture of three famous schools -- the Cynics, the Stoics and the Epicureans -- and summed up all three of them in his famous phrase, 'You can't trust any bugger further than you can throw him, and there's nothing you can do about it, so let's have a drink."

Time will tell. But I managed to mostly enjoy the Hobbit films and they certainly took a lot of liberties that I didn't agree with. So I think I can separate out my likes and dislikes better than some. I'm still looking forward to seeing what they do with this material, though since I have discontinued my Amazon Prime membership and have no intention of renewing it, I'm not when I will get a chance to watch any of it. Mostly likely I'll know everything there is to know about it before I ever get to see it for myself!

They wouldn't necessarily have to stay out of the way &/or disappear, it could be a separate but simultaneous story line. Perhaps the way different peoples of earth might have experienced a huge event -a volcanic eruption- in different parts of the globe in the year 3000 BC.

Yes, I'd say the reshaping of the world would certainly qualify to be seen from a variety of perspectives!
The dumbest thing I've ever bought
was a 2020 planner.

"Does anyone ever think about Denethor, the guy driven to madness by staying up late into the night alone in the dark staring at a flickering device he believed revealed unvarnished truth about the outside word, but which in fact showed mostly manipulated media created by a hostile power committed to portraying nothing but bad news framed in the worst possible way in order to sap hope, courage, and the will to go on? Seems like he's someone we should think about." - Dave_LF
