“The Hobbit” to be made into a trilogy

As if 3 movies based on the Tolkien word pf Hobbits wasn’t enough, fans rejoiced when Peter Jackson confirmed he would be making a film adaptation of “The Hobbit”. They rejoiced again when it was confirmed that the story would be told in 2 films…and now, fans are scratching their head after Jackson confirmed this week that the book would be told over 3 films.

“The Hobbit” tells the story of Bilbo Baggins before the events of “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy. The novel itself is not overly lengthy which makes me wonder how they will squeeze 2 full length features out of it. Some fans are worried that the quest to chase profits may lead to a diluted film while others are rejoicing.

How do you feel about having to see “The Hobbit” in 3 installments?
