“The Hobbit” in Three Parts

by on July 30, 2012

It has been rumored for a while that The Hobbit would become three movies, and in a Facebook post today, Peter Jackson has confirmed that this indeed the case.  This could make The Hobbit as long as Lord of the Rings.  Is there enough material in The Hobbit and appendices to Lord of the Rings to make the movies appealing to the casual moviegoer as well as the die=hard Tolkien fan?  Let us know what you think about this development in the comments section.
