The Hobbit: Unexpected Journey (part I)

(1/8) > >>


The trailer gave me some chills seeing it in the theater.

My brother-in-law told me the other day that "The Hobbit" will be told in 3 movies now instead of 2.  That should be better for generating interest in Renfaires through 2015.  Huzzah!

I've been further told (by the Mrs.) that the Hobbit movies are going to include more background stories that tie into the Lord of the Rings.  Making prequels is all the rage now.

I wonder if its background from the LOTR or background from the Silmarillion.

I will admit I will go and see it, all three parts, in the theatre. But I wonder why they go through the work of adding to a single book to the point where it takes 3 films, after taking so much out of the LotR books to do those movies. I'm reading The Hobbit to the kids right now, and it is such a complete, yet simple story.
