Peter Jackson officially announces that The Hobbit will have a Part Three

Jul. 30, 2012by: Alejandro Stepenberg

Peter Jackson with a pipe in Bag End

Between Peter Jackson and myself and this news, one is an Academy Award winning screenwriter and the other is so brilliantly beautiful that I would almost be doing a disservice by spending time expounding on my own instead of letting them speak for themselves. So without further ado:

"It is only at the end of a shoot that you finally get the chance to sit down and have a look at the film you have made. Recently Fran, Phil and I did just this when we watched for the first time an early cut of the first movie - and a large chunk of the second. We were really pleased with the way the story was coming together, in particular, the strength of the characters and the cast who have brought them to life.  All of which gave rise to a simple question: do we take this chance to tell more of the tale? And the answer from our perspective as the filmmakers, and as fans, was an unreserved ‘yes.'  

We know how much of the story of Bilbo Baggins, the Wizard Gandalf, the Dwarves of Erebor, the rise of the Necromancer, and the Battle of Dol Guldur will remain untold if we do not take this chance.  The richness of the story of The Hobbit, as well as some of the related material in the appendices of The Lord of the Rings, allows us to tell the full story of the adventures of Bilbo Baggins and the part he played in the sometimes dangerous, but at all times exciting, history of Middle-earth.

So, without further ado and on behalf of New Line Cinema, Warner Bros. Pictures, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, Wingnut Films, and the entire cast and crew of “The Hobbit” films, I’d like to announce that two films will become three.  

It has been an unexpected journey indeed, and in the words of Professor Tolkien himself, "a tale that grew in the telling."

Cheers, 

Peter J"

As truly, genuinely, outright spectacular as this news is, I can't help but wonder what this means for Jackson's planned TINTIN sequel.  I loved how he and Spielberg realized the world of Tintin, and I was very enthusiastically looking forward to Jackson's take on the next journey of Tinin and Company.  Hopefully we'll get some clarification soon and I can go back to being 100% enthused for part three of THE HOBBIT, as opposed to just 98% due to the fear of not getting another TINTIN film.

And just to recap:

THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY arrives on December 14th, 2012.
THE HOBBIT: THERE AND BACK AGAIN arrives on December 13th, 2013.
Which means (ideally) that THE HOBBIT: UNTITLED PART THREE arrives on December 12th, 2014.

"There and back again" indeed.

Extra Tidbit: Anyone out there who is up on their Tolkien lore want to throw out a title suggestion?

Third title news...

From "theonering.net" :
We have exclusive and reliable news from Ringer Spy Thrush that New Line has registered the following film titles:

The Desolation of Smaug
The Battle of Five Armies
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug
The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies
Which means, for sure, the Hobbit will NOT have a bridge film. It's a money grab.

"There and Back Again" has to go, or else there's a bridge movie...

Just realized something else -- with the 2nd movie called "There and back again" (which refers to Bilbo's actual returning to Hobbiton), then either:
a) The bridge (post Hobbit-timeline) movie is going to be film #3
or
b) The 2nd movie's sub-title has to change to something like "Still working on GETTING there..."

"Trust, but verify"

I'm skeptical. I want this to mean there will be a bridge movie, but it doesn't sound like it. It sounds like The Hobbit is now 3 movies, period. Because nothing he mentions takes place chronologically outside of the 1 year that The Hobbit takes place.

So, considering that this is *not* about the Bridge, the title should be: "The Hobbit: Grabbing from your wallet a 3rd time"

If it were a bridge film, then the title should be "The Hobbit: Rise of Mordor" (referencing Sauron's openly

at first I was upset when I heard this story. But the more I thought back to the book, the more I remember it always felt like two stories; the adventure to the Lonely Mountain and Smaug and the Battle of Five Armies. Also, as to a thrid movie, there is some material in the Silmarillion to tie the Hobbit to LOTR but there will have to be some ample new writing to make it happen. I dont doubt Jackson is one of the few directors capable of doing that.

YES!!!

Life brings us good days, bad days, and average days. But sometimes, it brings us magnificent days. As a fan of movies, and a fan of Lord Of The Rings (my all-time favorite movies), I can't even begin to express how euphoric I am at the thought of having a Hobbit trilogy. Thank you, Mr. Jackson.

Good to see devotion to good story telling in Hollywood

I dig this news and have become very excited much like the feeling I had when I first heard that LOTR was coming to the big screen in grand fashion. I'm sure that many could have brought this saga to a cinematic telling but without the devotion to the story that Jackson seems to have, there is no soul. Sure, the money is the incentive but being loyal to Tolkien's saga was imperitive to telling this story the right way. I don't think Tolkien would have loved the movies but I believe he would

Sure, the money is the incentive but being loyal to Tolkien's saga was imperitive to telling this story the right way. I don't think Tolkien would have loved the movies but I believe he would have been impressed with them. This new trilogy will supercede the Star Wars saga by leaps and bounds. This is a wake up call George. You've been bested. You have the tools to take your franchise to new bounds but you sit idlily by and collect. THIS is true art by taking a grand tale and transforming it into cinematic gold. For the next 3 years I will be found in the same spot that I was back in 2001-2003. Munching away on popcorn immersed in Middle Earth. Thanks Pete.

I love it how people are saying they don't like the idea because he's doing it for the money,... Is he doing for it? Yeah, maybe. That's what he does for a living. He directs and produces movies. And HAS DONE A HELL OF A JOB BY DOING IT! (Would'nt you worink at Best Buy work for more money?) I say bring it! I trust his vision in using part of the appendices to tie them together. I'm not gonna tear him a new asshole just cause he is working,... man! BRING IT!!!! LOVE THE IDEA!!!! If it does'nt

A minor complaint some of us Tolkien-appreciaters had about Lotr was that it focused too much on the action and was too rushed. It sounds like the Hobbit films are taking the time to include a lot of quirky details from the book. In a way it would be nice to have two films telling only the tale of the Hobbit and have the third one deal with Dol Goldur and all the revelations in the appendices.

It just seems fishy that they went into the process with 2 movies in mind, so the plot, the character arcs, and all the other subtleties would begin and become resolved by the end of the 2nd movie. Wouldn't they have to re-edit major things in the first 2 movies in order to create a satisfying, complete trilogy? I'll reserve final judgment until I actually see them, but I don't have a good feeling about this cash grab.

Big gamble fom Jackson

King Kong and Lovely Bones were both disappointing. Now he's turning the Hobbit, a very simple book to adapt, into a complex trilogy where he tries to make one story with many spare parts. If he succeeds, he re-establish himself; if he fails, he might drop out of the A-List.

I wish he would just stay true to The Hobbit as it is and not drag in the appendices. But I can't say I hate the fact that there will be more Tolkien translated to film through this decision. Hopefully it will all come together nicely.

How could this possibly be a bad thing?

I for one am a ginormous Tolkien nerd and loved the LotR trilogy. Getting another movie is fantastic news for fans as it will give Peter and Co. the chance to truly give such a wonderful story it's due diligence and make it a truly exceptional film. Idea for 3rd film title: The Hobbit: The Road Goes Ever On

Of course, I'm SOOOO happy about it...
STILL... This mean ANOTHER MOVIE entirely... SO everyone involved must sign YET ANOTHER contract... I'm pretty sure SOME people will try to negotiate a higher salary or something. Before being a financial dream (or so we hope) it will be a production nightmare, at least on a legal point of view.

The book of The Hobbit also sticks solely to Bilbo's relatively narrow experience, whereas the movies will be covering everything that happens to Gandalf, Sauron, and Galadriel. You're also going to see how Sauron establishes footholds in Angmar and Mirkwood. So there's plenty of material we're going to pull from that isn't in the main narrative of The Hobbit book" - Peter Jackson Comic-con 2012

Interesting quote about Angmar....considering that this wasn't Sauron's foothold, but was the Witch-King's (leader of the Nazgul), and also that it is the first [link] reference that I recall him making, since he'd abandoned the idea of the "bridge" movie.

I'm confused......

Does this mean that The Hobbit is not going to be the only book used in the films? That they're adding stories from other books to it?

Mostly it is the Appendices to the LOTR, where they explain (in retrospect) that when Gandalf disappeared during "The Hobbit" that it was to meet with the Whtie Council and attack Dol Guldur to drive "The Necromancer" out.

Title Suggestion (Spoilers for those who haven't read the Hobbit or the Lord of the Rings apendices)

Always been a big fan of Tolkien and I respect what Peter Jackson has done with the films. I feel that 'There and back again' will officially become part three, so therefore a good title for part two could be 'The Hobbit - The Battle of Dol Guldur' or even 'The Hobbit - The Rise of the Necromancer'. Although admittedly, the battle of Dol Guldur has more significance (it is where sauron physically forms and tries to launch an attack upon middle earth, which is why the ring 'abandoned Gollum'

Although admittedly, the battle of Dol Guldur has more significance (it is where sauron physically forms and tries to launch an attack upon middle earth, which is why the ring 'abandoned Gollum' in the first place. He is then destroyed by the White Council, (Gandalf, Saruman, Elrond, Galadriel and Radagast). Which is the exact reason why we never see sauron take physical form in the Lord of the Rings, because he wants to make sure the ring is with him this time). The Necromancer is probably more inclined towards the dwarves if i remember correctly, but that can work also.

"Rise" of the Necromancer isn't quite accurate. Sauron had established himself in Dol Guldur centuries and centuries earlier, driven out by Gandalf, only to return later. At the time of The Hobbit, this was his *2nd* occupation of Dol Guldur, and even then, this 2nd occupation had already been underway for almost *500* years.

Sorry, geeked out a bit much there. I'd say "Battle of Dol Guldur" works, but detracts from the Hobbit story itself.

Beorn

TINTIN was great and probably deserves a sequel. For the third film they could do a lot with Beorn. They could tell more about Gloin and how his son Gimli plays into matters in LOTR. And they could expound upon Gollum and his torture in Mordor.

I'm pretty excited about the third film, and hope that it works out. Tolkien was an incredible visionary of middle earth and to see that pour into a third film to tie The Hobbit and LOTR together would be awesome. I noticed that in the press release, it said Summer 2014 to the third film.

Wow.

Just floored by this. I totally trust Peter Jackson. Watching some of the production diaries, it is clear that the entire cats and crew are having great joy and love for the material. So much so that two films isn't enough. Sure it will make bucket loads more money and stretch the material out another year. But a trilogy sounds right.

Under the presumption that they're going back to film more, which is how I understand things are gonna be. This isn't them just stretching out what they've already shot.
Also I am 100% sure that the "Third" film will be titled "There And Back Again"; it's what's now gonna be the second film that we need to figure out.

I'm a bit wary, but Peter Jackson has earned my total trust when it comes to Tolkien. And if he delivers, which I have every belief that he will, then we'll have three great movies instead of two. I've read other places that they're planning on releasing the third part in summer of 2014, but that may or may not be true.

I do agree that TINTIN does need to be made. I loved TINTIN! However, I would love another Hobbit film! Even if I haven't seen one yet.
