Tom Bombadil is a polarizing figure in Middle-earth. Some hate him, some love him. Peter Jackson decided to completely avoid that discussion and simply excise him from the film.

What’s really interesting is that his comments about Bombadil really mirror JRR Tolkien’s own points made in a letter in 1954.
