More on The Hobbit

I was excited to recently learn the official titles of the two new Hobbit films. They are 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey' and 'The Hobbit: There and Back Again.'

These films are Peter Jackson's epic two-film adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's classic The Hobbit with the first film slated to open on December 14, 2012 and the second film to be released on December 13, 2013.

Can't wait!

The honest (non-snarky) answer is that it's so insanely expensive to build Middle-Earth again; the studio required two films to help ensure it covers costs. That's the same reason they shot the three LOTR movies back-to-back, which worked out pretty well.

Christopher Lee's definitely back for The Hobbit. The press release that announced the titles and release dates also lists him among the cast, the first official confirmation we have. His own website also had him down as returning, pending confirmation.
