  • Peter Jackson is directing
  • Martin Freeman has been cast as Bilbo
  • Cate Blanchett has signed on as Galandriel
  • Ian McKellen is reprising his role as Gandolf, as far as I know


The Hobbit will follow Peter Jackson's three Lord of the Rings films, acting as a prequel (as the book was). It's going to be split into 2 movies to be released in 2012 and 2013. I think they're in pre-production, I don't know much about it to be honest, except that it was a nightmare to get off the ground (it seems). The movie's been rumored for years and is finally gathering steam.

Peter Jackson has put some great video diaries online. Not really spoilers, but they give you some great looks at the sets and costumes.

Above is the first one, follow the youtube link and you'll be able to find 6 more.

It definitely looks good to me from what I've seen of the promotional stuff. It is the one film this year that I am determined to see no matter what.

Same here, quite excited for it. Lord of the Ring movies were out of this world (as far as I'm concerned; others may disagree). Granted, they're long, but they're very enjoyable. This looks just as well made.

The Hobbit Films to be a Triology

From the BBC http://www.bbc.co.uk/newsbeat/19055342

The essential parts of the story are that the Hobbit is now going to be three movies rather than two. The release date of the first film is December 14th 2012 and the second film is December 13th 2013.

I think you can look at this two ways. You can either think its a stunt to make more money out of the franchise or you can think that the team behind it love the fandom so much they found more things they wanted to add as they explored the additional thins happening in the same time. Either way it makes things difficult for us to work out where the first movies ends and the second picks up and where the third will pick up from the second.

You know what? I'm excited. I think it'll work. Sure they're milking it for all its worth, but the movies are going to be over 2 hours a piece (and who knows if he'll do extended editions!) so it'll be worth it in the end. He'll hit more story points, so it'll appease some fans.

I have no idea how he's planning to split the stories up though. I imagine he'd leave each movie with a minor cliffhanger, but I can't imagine where or how exactly.
