    I'm sure that they will be good, but I'm a little worried about pacing. LOTR took three large novels and turned them into three good length movies. The Hobbit can be read in a long afternoon and they plan to get three movies out of it?

    Movies often gloss over some side stories and character development you find in a well-written novel, so I'm hopeful that this will turn out to be a very good thing (Plus, I think Peter Jackson approaches JRRT's work almost reverently)

    I heard that the Hobbit movies will actually have more that just material from the book of The Hobbit. From what I have heard it will also have stuff from other sources like The Silmarillion as well to help flesh out some of the stuff that's referenced and link the Hobbit movies to the Lord of the Rings movies better.

    We know that Galadriel, Saruman and Rhadagast will appear, so I have to believe that we will get the White Council facing Sauron in Dol Guldur. Two movies I can see, but three I feel is really pushing it.

    As noted in a few articles now, they've been quoted as drawing on the later printings' appendices by Tolkien and/or edited by Christopher Tolkien. Seems like a stretch, but while it might not seam together well, it will likely be fairly true to the works. I think Jackson has enough power to beat the Hollywood mogols off with a stick. Staff. yeah. While the LotR films didn't completely follow the books, they were incredible. Bring on more Gandalf and Bagginses

    My dad, who introduced me to the books at a tender age, is retiring and wants to come up from the wilds of South Texas for the release. Alamo theaters will likely have another all-day Hobbit feast (breakfast, second breakfast... onesies, etc.) while showing the trilogy and the new first film of the Hobbit. "Just tea, thank you"

    I'll be back up in Lubbock when Hobbit part one opens but I think I can round up a few folks there to do just this sort of thing.
