Why is there no link to the trailer? I do hope everyone have seen it.. if not here goes:





Ive just started reading The Hobbit again, for the 4th time.. and im getting pumped, this movie will blow my mind away if its more true to the original story than LOTR is.

Im hoping it will be more true to the novel than LOTR was, artistic freedom is nice, but elves in helm's deep, arwen as a key figure etc.. nah it was all wrong and leaving out Tom Bombadil.. im thinking The Hobbit will be more true to the novel all in all.. but who knows, Peter Jackson called in Cate Blanchet (Galadriel) and Orlando Bloom for some scenes as well apparently, neither of which appears in the book.

Except the mention of the White Council perhaps, but I belive thats in the Silmaril and Legolas has nothing to do in this tale, even if he is Thranduil's son.

We can but hope it's more true to the books, but I think artistic licence will always be somewhere in a film of this nature...

Peter Jackson Confirms 'The Hobbit' Will Be A Trilogy
Previously slated to be two films, Peter Jackson’s Hobbit has grown into a trilogy.

News that Peter Jackson’s adaptation of The Hobbit will now be three movies instead of two has many people scratching their heads. Or so I would imagine. Jackson spent three films adapting The Lord of the Rings - a trilogy written by J.R.R. Tolkien in which each book is longer than Tolkien’s earlier Hobbit.

Here are the word counts to give you a sense of what I’m talking about:

The Hobbit: 95,022
Fellowship of the Ring: 177,227
Two Towers: 143,436
Return of the King: 134,462

So, in spite of the fact that are over 450,000 words in the Lord of the Rings trilogy – over four times the number in The Hobbit - Jackson is nevertheless stretching this one book out over three movies.

Then again, Jackson does say material is being pulled from appendices to flesh out the story, and with three full films they’ll be able to include everything from the book.

“We know how much of the story of Bilbo Baggins, the Wizard Gandalf, the Dwarves of Erebor, the rise of the Necromancer, and the Battle of Dol Guldur will remain untold if we do not take this chance,” Jackson wrote on the film’s Facebook page. “The richness of the story of The Hobbit, as well as some of the related material in the appendices of The Lord of the Rings, allows us to tell the full story of the adventures of Bilbo Baggins and the part he played in the sometimes dangerous, but at all times exciting, history of Middle-earth.

“So, without further ado and on behalf of New Line Cinema, Warner Bros. Pictures, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, Wingnut Films, and the entire cast and crew of “The Hobbit” films, I’d like to announce that two films will become three.

“It has been an unexpected journey indeed, and in the words of Professor Tolkien himself, “a tale that grew in the telling.”"

This looks like a great movie. Movies based on books always convince me to read the book or read the book again (if I read the book once, already).
