I have no goddamn idea how they are going to take a book that is smaller than the smallest from the Lord of The Rings trilogy, and make it into 3 films! But I will still pay to see each and every one of them.
The first movie in the new series is already going to be around 3 hours and 15 minutes, and for continuity, the other 2 probably will be around 3 hours as well. I’ve been reading that they will be using this trilogy to weave in pieces of other Tolkien stories and pieces of the LOTR mythology that got left out.
I’m excited to see some familiar faces and places along with what I’m sure will be a thrilling adventure with new friends and foes. After what I can’t believe has almost already been a decade, I’m ready to return to Middle-Earth.
