“Hobbit” film names, release dates announced

By Kim Palacios

hollywoodnews.com: Peter Jackson’s adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s “Hobbit” prequels to “The Lord of the Rings” series finally have names. Gossip Cop broke the news, rating the rumor a 10 on the “real vs. rumor” scale (the highest possible score). Reportedly, “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” will open on December 14, 2012 and “The Hobbit: There and Back Again” will open on December 13, 2013.

The plot features young hobbit Bilbo Baggins traveling to Lonely Mountain accompanied by a group of dwarves to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor, which had been taken from them by the dragon, Smaug. Many actors from Jackson’s “Lord of the Rings” movie trilogy will reprise their roles in the “Hobbit” films, including Orlando Bloom (Legolas), Cate Blanchett (Galadriel), Hugo Weaving (Elrond), Ian McKellan (Gandalf) and Elijah Wood (Frodo). The young Bilbo Baggins will be played by Martin Freeman (“The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy”, “Love Actually”).

    This is exactly what I was wondering, Lux. It’s not an incredibly long book. It made sense to break Lord of the Rings up into three films because that ended up being 1 book per film. But the Hobbit’s just a nice, quick read.
