‘The Hobbit’ Trilogy — Do You Really Want Three ‘Hobbit’ Movies?

'The Hobbit' Trilogy
Warner Bros.

It’s safe to say that we pretty much all loved Peter Jackson‘s ‘The Lord of the Rings’ movie trilogy, which grossed about $3 billion in worldwide sales during their 2001-2003 releases. Now it looks like Warner Bros. is seeking to achieve the same results with the upcoming ‘Hobbit‘ movie adaptation — or should we say, adaptations — as it’s looking to become a movie trilogy.

We’ve seen this tactic before. We saw it first with ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows’ split into two flicks, and then came the two-parters for the final ‘Twilight‘ and ‘Hunger Games‘ movies. But it comes as a first to hear talk of a director splitting a single book into three parts on the big screen.

Although when it came to ‘Harry Potter‘ and ‘Breaking Dawn,’ it seemed like the franchises were trying to keep flourishing for as long as possible; but they did allow for more steady-paced story lines, and the inclusion of many smaller plot and character details from the novels. Plus, in Jackson’s case, it doesn’t seem like he’d run out of material for a trilogy. “We also have the rights to use this 125 pages of additional notes where Tolkien expanded the world of ‘The Hobbit,’” he said.

What do you think? Now’s the time to join the conversation by voting in our poll below and elaborating in the comments.
