Will you be seeing it? I'm very surprised how they are going to pad out a small book into 3 films but as it's Peter Jackson at the helm (get it?) I am very confident that The Hobbit films will be absolute belters.

N.D.

Hi chaps,

Just noticed you were chatting about The Hobbit. I am off to se it this Sunday and I am very excited. The Lord Of The Rings triliogy was epic, but seeing the trailers for The Hobbit I think it might even be bigger and better.

Hi Graeme. Glad to meet another Dad who is excited about seeing it. I just love the trailers for it, especially the song about the misty mountains. This will be epic stuff indeed....

My elder two are both under 12, and I have not shown them Lord of the Rings - just too long. I've noticed trying to get them to watch things before they are ready result in them never wanting to watch them.

However, the Hobbit is simpler and looks stunning - so we think we are going to risk it... Although I hear the Hobbit is going to be a trilogy - is that really the case???

The trailers have been amazing and the song over misty mountains is awesome it's got such a haunting sound to it. It is going to be amazingly epic.

I don't know if you saw my introduction post but I am writing my own fantasy based novels.

I didn't know that Peter Jackson was going to be remaking The Dambusters, I am sure that too will be epic I will look forward to more news on that.

Have any of you seen the trailer for the new Star Trek film into darkness.... if not check it out, its amazing!

Batman,

Yes The Hobbit has been made as a trilogy which is great but I would imagine each film is about three hours long and will probably be spread out over 12 monthly periods.

It was bad enough waiting for the next installments of LOTR let alone having to wait for the parts 2&3 of The Hobbit.

Wow! that is a lot of movie - yes hopefully they are going to make it "quick"!

I really liked the last Star Trek - looking forward to that!

I'm still getting over my disappointment that they dropped http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scouring_of_the_Shire completely from the Lord of the Rings movies 🙁

However, I'm a sucker for a nice action movie with some dragons etc. so probably when it comes out on DVD...
