The Hobbit Trilogy Release Dates and Title Changes

The Hobbit Trilogy Release Dates and Titles

And here we thought Peter Jackson was just pulling a fast one on us back at Comic-Con 2012. Nope! It has been confirmed that The Hobbit will be transformed into a trilogy instead of a two-part film. Apparently, Mr. Jackson was able to film so much additional footage that Warner Bros. just couldn’t say no – and who could blame them?

First Look: The Dwarves of The Hobbit

Pre-Comic-Con, images of individual and groups of dwarves from Peter Jackson’s upcoming film The Hobbit: The Unexpected Journey and The Hobbit: There and Back Again have been sprouting up. Now I’m not quite sure if someone Photoshopped all of them together or if this is an official image, but I really like this group shot of the infamous 12 dwarves from the classic J.R.R. Tolkien book The Hobbit.

There is a really great sense of place with their costume design. They all seem to fit perfectly within Peter Jackson’s Midde-Earth realm from The Lord of the Rings trilogy. Could Mr. Jackson be setting up for another Oscar run? Perhaps, but I’m not going to hold my breath. With the way Harry Potter was split up, I don’t put too much faith in movies that are part of a whole. What do you think of the 12 dwarves abound to take back their gold from the evil dragon Smaug?
