Re: THE HOBBIT (2012/2013): News, Rumors, Pics Till Release

Well, thanks to this, I now found out that Tolkien did not invent the word hobbit. I was wondering how they got the rights to the name, but it turns out they didn't have to.
Although I do wonder if they have to change the Hobbit's appearance.

^ I was just about to ask about that. I had always assumed it was a word he specifically made up for the books.

Good news for anyone here that's going to Comic-Con: The Hobbit will be there in full force.

Peter Jackson, Phillipa Boyens, Andy Serkis, Martin Feeman, Ian McKellen, and Richard Armitage will all be present for the panel. And apparently Guillermo del Toro's own movie, Pacific Rim, will also be having a panel in the same room that day, so that's kind of cool.

There were rumors recently of a second trailer. Hopefully it will premiere at Comic-Con.

Entertainment Weekly will be doing a Comic-Con issue soon, and one of its main features (unsurprisingly) will be The Hobbit. They've released ten new images. You can see them at their website here.

Looking good.

Awesome, awesome, awesome! I can't wait!

Also on the news front: John Rhys-Davies may have a cameo?

Gah! Thanks for posting that, Emh. I'd meant to include that, too, but completely forgot.

As some character, maybe even as a Hobbit. Or just the voice of someone. But please, not as Gimli. That would make absolutely no sense at all.

A year or so back I was goofing with the tiles I had in Words With Friends and played hobbit--it took. That prompted me look it up as well. I thought it was a specific fictional word also.

Jedi will also take in the game if I recall correctly.

Maybe he'll voice the spiders (assuming PJ gives them voices) or one of the trolls.

Oh, I certainly hope so. Even having his voice in the film would be wonderful! I just adore the guy.

No because Mikael Persbrandt is portraying him.

Peter Jackson just posted a new poster on his Facebook page which will be available at Comic-Con.
