The Hobbit News

When Peter Jackson unleashed the Lord Of The Rings trilogy into cinemas with great aplomb it was always a matter of when, rather if, he would have a pop at JRR Tolkien’s The Hobbit.

Over the last few months we’ve been fed cast details, that have included Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins as well as roles for Stephen Fry, James Nesbitt, Richard Armitage. According to Total Film we now know that the adaptation will be split into two movies; ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’ with a release date of December 17 2012 and ‘The Hobbit: There And Back Again', to be released on December 13 2013.

Sir Ian McKellen, Elijah Wood, Orlando Bloom and Cate Blanchett are also expected to reprise their LOTR roles for the films.
