The Hobbit trilogy is confirmed
Director Peter Jackson has confirmed the news on his Facebook page...
For a while it's been just a rumour. But now director Peter Jackson has come out and confirmed the news: The Hobbit will indeed be split into three movies.
Announcing the news on his Facebook page, he said:
"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."
The news has come to a welcome surprise to some, while others haven't received it too well at all.
What do you think? Should the movie be a trilogy or not?
