    There Will Be A Third HOBBIT Film

    It is only at the end of a shoot that you finally get the chance to sit down and have a look at the film you have made. Recently Fran, Phil and I did just this when we watched for the first time an early cut of the first movie - and a large chunk of the second. We were really pleased with the way the story was coming together, in particular, the strength of the characters and the cast who have brought them to life. All of which gave rise to a simple question: do we take this chance to tell more of the tale? And the answer from our perspective as the filmmakers, and as fans, was an unreserved ‘yes.'

    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. 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."

    Cheers,

    Peter J
    So this opens up a lot of questions. Will the main story of The Hobbit be done by the end of the second film? Will the third film strictly be a bridge film? Will they simply split the second film into two? Are they going to focus more on the rise of Sauron, in order to provide a tighter bridge to the Lord of the Rings? And lastly, will the third film even be called The Hobbit?

    Interesting turn of events. I'm definitely skeptical, at least until we hear more details.

    Sounds extremely unnecessary. I'm sure The Hobbit in its entirety would have made an epic 3 hour movie. Isn't that book even shorter than the LOTR books? Sounds like a stretch and/or moneygrab

    Pretty much this. If they can make it consistent in quality then I don't mind an extension!

    Edit: Lethal, dude, your av and sigs are too sexy...One doesn't simply fap in the work place. Can't you have something less arousing? lol

    Wow. Three movies?

    I mean, I am going to love the films, I just hope that there is a small time in between each one.

    It means we have to pay 3 times and wait 2 years to see one story.

    A couple things to note....

    1) The Hobbit is much faster paced than the LOTR. There are a lot more places visited and events that occur. So two movies makes sense if you want to properly flesh out the story. However...

    2) Peter Jackson & Co. are also using the appendices found in the LOTR books (125 pages of extra history) to tell additional plots that were occurring at the time. The main plot being the rise of Sauron, which The Hobbit didn't contain, yet it was occurring at that time. If you remember, whenever Gandalf left the group, he was actually with The White Council, dealing with Sauron.

    So two films are definitely needed and if Peter Jackson includes a lot of the appendices material, three could work. We'll see...

    I watch all 3 Extended Lord of the Rings movies back to back which is around 12 hours annually so more Middle Earth from Peter Jackson makes me happy.

    Just an FYI, The Hobbit will be releasing in theaters on December 14, 2012.



    The trailer sort of sucks, but I still want to see it.
