CONFIRMED: 'The Hobbit' Will Be A Trilogy

Peter Jackson wanted to make his two-part adaptation 'The Hobbit' a trilogy.

He had serious talks with Warner Bros. and now, Jackson, via his Facebook page, is confirming that 'The Hobbit' will be a trilogy .

The first installment 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey' will be released on December 14th, the 2nd installment 'The Hobbit: There and Back' is due out December 13, 2013 and the final installment (no title yet) will be released Summer of 2014 - the first summer film of 'Lord of the Rings'

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
