The Hobbit Is Coming Too

This has nothing to do with my own work (well, aside from kindling my love of fantasy in the first place), but as a huge Tolkien fanboy, I can't help but sharing this for the six or seven of you who may not have stumbled on it yet.

Bilbo! Gandalf! Dwarfs! (No dragons till next picture, though).

Hot damn! Can't wait!

The Lord of the Rings taught us the fantasy literature, A Song of Ice and Fire takes us to the nirvana of it.

Indeed! \o/

It is amazing!I'm glad Peter Jackson directed it, it has the same feel as the LotR Trilogy :)

It doesn't has the same feel as the LOTR trilogy, it looks EXACTLY like LOTR trilogy! I hoped for a bit of originality, the trailer looks quite disappointing...

And two of my favourite actors in it, too! Can't you get Martin Freeman (John Watson/Bilbo) and Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock Homes/Smaug/Necromancer) lined up for GOT? That would be such a treat!

It looks amazing!!:)The introduction to the dwarves was fantastic, Bilbo and Gandalf were so, so great to see, but yup, sigh...no Smaug yet!:p

I've my concerns about this project, for various reasons... but the teaser was very tempting. The swelling music of what I guess is either the main theme or, at least, the theme for the dwarves, is amazingly stirring, right up there with Shore's best themes for the the trilogy. Linda and I just got the complete soundtrack sets for those three films, so we're certainly looking forward to what Shore pulls out his hat for this one.

Appetites definitely whetted.

The Hobbit was a defining book of my childhood. Can't wait to see it, although I'm slightly anxious in case some beloved element gets ruined...

(However, all 13 of The Hobbit's dwarves are not as cool as your one.)

2 films out of 1 book
They're making 2 films. Extra stuff that happened at that time frame mentioned in lord of the Rings, but wasn't in the actual Hobbit novel will be included. Which is why we see Galadriel, who wasn't in the Hobbit novel, but met with Gandalf & the White Council @ that time.

Speaking of Tolkien, aside from Hobbit & Lord of the Rings, checkout Silmarillion (as an 'extended' appendeces) & the recent Children of Hurin.

Re: 2 films out of 1 book
I don't mind if they add stuff to tie the Hobbit into the main story arch so long as they don't goober the Bilbo/Gollum riddle scene at the underground lake.

Well aren’t you « the american Tolkien » anyways???


I always thought you Dunk and Egg story ark to be your « The Hobbit » equivalent and ASOIAF your « Lord of the ring » equivalent... So following that chain of thought brings me to believe that once HBO will have gone thru ASOIAF, a few years will pass and they’ll do the Dunk and Egg stuff.
Dec. 23rd, 2011 05:44 pm (UTC)
Ooh! Dunc and Egg would make a great feature film! Why wait until ASOIF has run its course on HBO! Let's get a Dunc and Egg movie going now!

They caught my attention with the singing. This could be great.
Dec. 23rd, 2011 05:45 pm (UTC)
Shouldn't it be in Dwarvish, though?

There are people on 'The Hobbit''s IMDB page claiming that 'Game of Thrones' should have put an end to "childish nonsense" like the 'The Hobbit'. ASoIaF will always be my favorite book series but I never saw why one can't like both.

So I'm very happy you posted this.
Dec. 23rd, 2011 10:10 am (UTC)
Well of course the Hobbit is childish nonsense - it was written for children!
Dec. 23rd, 2011 01:12 am (UTC)
I love it, and cannot wait! The Hobbit was proabably my first encounter with fantasy.
Dec. 23rd, 2011 01:13 am (UTC)
Oh my god.
I must have watched this again and again several times. The dwarves singing still gives me goosebumps every single time.

And Martin Freeman! ♥

Re: Oh my god.
Is it me, or does Martin's Bilbo bring to mind Dominic Monaghan's Pippin just a bit? Ian Holmes played Bilbo with a bit more stature, while Freeman seems to bring a bit more humor. Not complaining! Just commenting!
Dec. 23rd, 2011 02:36 am (UTC)
Agreed ^

Goosebumps all the way!
