The Hobbit Will Be Three Movies

Peter Jackson Confirms The Hobbit Will Be a Trilogy

Director Peter Jackson took to Facebook today to officially announce that The Hobbit will be three movies, rather than two, as originally planned. In his statement, he wrote that he and partner Fran Walsh had recently watched the footage and asked themselves, "Do we take this chance to tell more of the tale? And the answer from our perspective as the filmmakers, and as fans, was an unreserved 'yes.'" Jackson continued on to say, "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."

There is no word yet on whether this decision will affect the previously announced release dates for the two movies, An Unexpected Journey and There and Back Again.

The fact remains that Peter Jackson is one dedicated director to the projects he takes on; filming all the films in the same beautiful location and in secession is brilliant! Apparently I will be traveling on business for Dish upon the December release, oh well I'll find a way to make it to theaters. My goal is to catch up on all the LOTR movies before "The Hobbit" makes it way to the silver screen; subscribing to Blockbuster @Home makes getting older movies so much easier and convenient. I plan to watch all three on Blu-ray during the airport delays that go along with travel.
