The Hobbit X3

  Praise the powers that be at Warner Bros and to Sir Peter and crew, it has been confirmed that The Hobbit
will indeed be a Trilogy. I for one am excited as a kid on Christmas day getting the toy he asked for. This means that we will not get two but three trips back to Middle Earth over the next 2 and a half years and lets face it these will probably be the last trips there, the Tolkien trust holds the rights to The Silmarillion and lets also face the fact that The Silmarillion doesn't have the large fanbase that LOTr and TH have so what studio would take a hundreds of Millions dollar shot on it, probably none, of course I could be wrong but I doubt it.That being said now we ave to figure out the content of the second movie which is drawn mainly from the appendices at the end of LOTR so I personally its the same story with the characters and their individual histories ( races and individuals )  given a more indepth presentation. I personally am hoping for more on the Necromancer but will take what I can get. I will keep you abrest of whats happening with the new movie as I learn more myself until the may i suggest a visit to The One Ring Nets site as they are really on this story. Later folks and celebrate the good news of the third Hobbit movie.

THE HOBBIT to possibly be a triolgy

 Okay folks here is the latest on these rumors. Sir Peter Jackson says he is in negotiations with Warner Brothers to extend shooting on the upcoming THE HOBBIT movie and take more source material from the appendices from THE RETURN OF THE KING and apply it towards possibly turning the movie from a two parter into a trilogy.Yes thats right Three movie instead of one.Of course there would be major hurdles to overcome such as financing and reassembling the cast and a ton of other details to work out.I am in a definite wait and see attitude on this and of course the obvious questions arise. would a third movie dilute the tale and is this just an obvious cash grab one more chance to feast at the Tolkien banquet? I don't know but I will keep you informed as I find out more. Please view the Jackson interview on this blog to confirm some of what I have just said.
