The tone of The Hobbit is so much lighter — really more of a children’s story — hopefully Jackson will get it right.

Hopefully this time they won’t raze the props, they’ll keep them as tourist attractions.

Awesome! I just finished LotR recently and am now re-reading The Silmarillion. Now THAT is not a light read (or very uplifting either)!

Reprising their roles from “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy are Cate Blanchett as Galadriel, Andy Serkis as Gollum and Elijah Wood as Frodo.

Frodo? But Frodo is not in "The Hobbit". He wasn't even born yet when Bilbo goes on his adventure to There and Back Again. I wonder what's up.

Reminds me of the good old thermobaric bomb days...

Let’s hope they don’t butcher the story like they did for LOTR.

Also, I really don’t want to hear about Ian McKellan’s unnatural desires for hobbit booty. Let him keep his mouth shut and act.

I hope Jackson makes the movie dark and doesn’t make it a children’s tale. I liked LOTR and have high hopes for the Hobbit.
