The Latest Hobbit Trailer Looks Like Lord of the Rings Hit With a Shrink-O-Ray

By Sam Gibbs on at

We already know the Hobbit is going to be split into not just two films, but three, and that part one, An Unexpected Journey, will be out just before Christmas. But now we know it'll be like Lord of the Rings only pint-sized. Well, in height at least, it'll probably still be way too long just like its older brothers.

To be fair, it's a pretty good trailer, but I just can't help but think it’s going to be like a Lord of the Rings lite. Hopefully it'll be decent, but I'm not going to jump on in until I've seen the reviews. I just can't get over the fact that Jackson and crew are stretching one book, and a thin one at that by Tolkien's standards, into three whole, presumably epic films. A disaster? Probably not, but it might be a snooze-fest in some parts. What do you guys think? Is Jackson out of his mind, or have you had enough Tolkien to last you a lifetime already? [YouTube via TotalFilm]
