I'm pleased, but I don't see how they're going to make two films from The Hobbit. It'll surely be a step down after Return of the King.

Who knows though.

It's called the pointless doubling of content to make more money method.

Still. Hurray!

Good, it would have been a mess otherwise.

He should have done golden compass as well. :(

Maybe there's too much of the book that they don't want to cut. It's a good thing in my opinion. LotR trilogy should've been 6 films. ¬_¬

I bet it's got a lot to do with money anyway.

And I agree with you Doug, he really is the finest out there.

Or 9 films, like the actual books.

Lord of the Rings has 9 books, not including the appendices iirc. If you check some of the older copies of the Lord of the Rings (pre-film ones) and leaf through them, you can see it was originally 9 books, not 3

Nah, the vast majority of cuts were sensible. Certain things which worked in the books didn't (or wouldn't have) worked in the films - the Mouth of Sauron is a good case in point. When they put it back in the extended edition of Return of the King, it was a bit redundant since we already knew Frodo was alive and that the Mouth was bluffing. In the book, you don't meet Frodo in the tower until after that scene, so you wonder if he actually HAS failed and everyone's boned.

Also the scouring of the Shire would never have worked at the end of the film. And Tom Bombadil is a fruity 'tard.
