The biggest surprise for me is that Peter Jackson decided to make three movies out of that tiny book! As a crazy LOTR fan I should be over the moon, however I’m worried that in a result each part will become dull, unless Jackson has added some extra scenes to the original script. The trilogy is scheduled as follow:

1. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, will be released December 14, 2012

2.  The Hobbit: There and Back AgainDecember 13, 2013

3.  The Hobbit Part 3,  summer 2014
