Movie Series - Hobbit, The

The Hobbit is an upcoming three-part epic fantasy-adventure film series directed and produced by Peter Jackson and based on J. R. R. Tolkien's fantasy novel of the same name. The films will act as a prequel to Jackson's The Lord of the Rings film trilogy and will star Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins,[3] Richard Armitage as Thorin Oakenshield, and Benedict Cumberbatch as Smaug,[4] as well as several actors who will reprise their roles from The Lord of the Rings, including Ian McKellen, Andy Serkis, Hugo Weaving, Cate Blanchett, Christopher Lee, Ian Holm, Elijah Wood, and Orlando Bloom. Also returning for the production are a significant part of the production crew: among others, writers Fran Walsh and Philippa Boyens, illustrators John Howe and Alan Lee, art director Dan Hennah, and cinematographer Andrew Lesnie. As with the original trilogy, props will generally be crafted by Weta Workshop and visual effects managed by Weta Digital. Additionally, composer Howard Shore, who wrote the score for The Lord of the Rings, has confirmed his involvement in the first two parts of the film project.[5] Although originally made as a two part film, Jackson and MGM have confirmed plans for a third film as well.

1 Well, Peter Jackson has pulled a "George Lucas" with his new Tolkein trilogy. The Hobbit joins the lengthening list of way too long CGI crapfests. -- Submitted By: (John63btf) on January 27, 2014, 3:52 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Robert, The Hobbit was first published in 1937 and was 317 long. Not a short story, never was, never will be, Jackson does go long on running times but the NOVEL was extremely complicated. The Rankin-Bass version was a dumbed down kid's story and never meant to be a definitive adaptation. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on November 14, 2013, 7:31 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Jmac9909: I was referring to The Hobbit...NOT the Lord of the Rings sequels. Rankin-Bass managed to successfully make ONE movie out of the Hobbit story. Peter Jackson's movie was over 2 1/2 hours long, and Bilbo didn't even met Smaug yet. I've actually seen the book: "The Hobbit: There and back again" is a short novel, of only 310 pages. I always "crack a book" or "at least Google" before I criticize anything. -- Submitted By: () on November 9, 2013, 9:07 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 I can't really judge the series properly until the trilogy is completed, but it seems excessive and I can't help be cynical about the motives. (Three movies instead of just one = more $$$$$$$) An even longer cut of the first one comes out this month. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on November 7, 2013, 1:56 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
5 Robert, the films are based on 4 novels, each well over 300 pages long, some are closer to 400: The Hobbit, and The Lord of the Rings Trilogy (Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, and The Return of the King). Collectively they represent almost 1,500 pages. That's some short story! Crack a book before you criticize, or at least Google. Calling The Hobbit and its sequels a short story is like calling the Encyclopedia Britanica a pamphlet. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on November 7, 2013, 7:10 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 How else do you turn a short story into THREE movies, each over 2 hours long? -- Submitted By: (Robert) on November 4, 2013, 1:27 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
7 The Hobbit is now 3 movies instead of 2. Wonder where they will break those storylines up? -- Submitted By: (Hikariu) on July 31, 2012, 9:37 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
