Check it out. The Hobbit Trailer.

    Saw this last night, and was excited about it, mostly seeing how the younger Bilbo looked (excellent) and just seeing Ian McKellan again as Gandalf. I worry about the many dwarves, and how that will be played for humor, but it seems the only way the film could handle the absurdity of it and those names. Amazing to see Cate Blanchett back, and Gollum, of course. I note that Smaug the Dragon nowhere seems to appear, so maybe that is for part II. They connected the look and feel of this brilliantly with the Lord of the Rings. Can’t wait.

    I agree. I think the song was a brilliant move and a great atmosphere establishment. I’m excited because this go-around I’m taking Eliot with me. We’ve read the Hobbit (and he re-read parts on his own) and we’re going to read the trilogy before this comes out. I may take Claire, too, depending on how Sara reacts. Claire, of course, was a little bored with the book. She said, “Are there any women at all?”

  3. Ned

    I’m anxious to see how they depict Smaug too. Though his voice is performed by Benedict Cumberbatch so that’s a plus.

    Not sure I will bring Beckett to The Hobbit movie–he’ll just be four by December, and I’d rather he experience the book first. Might be two or three years down the road for us. Beckett did see the trailer, however, and was excited by my excitement.

    Should be great for you, Ned, to have Eliot along, and maybe Claire, on this adventure.

    Happy New Year everyone! (And by everyone, I guess I mean Ned, since everyone else has abandoned this site.)
