The Hobbit Trailer

Hello everyone.
As many of you might have seen, a new trailer for The Hobbit has been released about a week ago. Around January of this year a mystifying trailer came out that got me very excited. It looks very similar to the original trilogy, and has the same director, Peter Jackson.
The Lord of the Rings is one of my all time favorite book/movie trilogies, and The Hobbit is a prequel to it. If you haven't checked out my LotR reviews, here is The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, and The Return of the King.
Anyways, I am extremely excited for this movie. Many of the wonderful cast from the LotR are returning, who I thought were awesome. I think this movie can also help people get into the world of Middle Earth better than the LotR trilogy. If you didn't know, when J.R.R. Tolkien wrote the Hobbit, he intended for it to become a children's book. However this fantastic novel is equally loved by children and adults. It will be separated into three movies. Some people have criticized this but I am glad it is happening. In my opinion, this will give the cast and producers more time to fine tune the movies and make it perfect.
Thank you for reading! I'm hoping to get a review out for next week, so stay tuned.


  1. I can't wait! As a big fan of LoTR this is such a great preview

  2. I really enjoyed the Lord of the Rings series and at first I was very, very excited; the trailer looks absolutely incredible, too, especially with the returning actors. I'm especially interested in some of the potential cameos that could happen: for example, Legolas is, if I remember correctly, the son of the wood-elves that Bilbo and the dwarves encounter in Mirkwood (sp?). However, I do have one drawback that leaves me with some hesitation: the movie is apparently going to be split into three parts like the original Lord of the Rings trilogy and I'm not really sure that there's enough substance for them to have three powerful films drawn just from The Hobbit, although I do hope they pull it off. One worry I have is that they'll try to turn the Lord of the Rings series into something like Pirates of the Caribbean, where it's basically just a quick cash cow; as long as they stay away from this and continue to make quality films, I'll be happy to see them. I know already this is one of those movies I won't miss in theaters!
