Apparently Jackson plans to film all the stories Gandalf tells about how he ends up where is and gets certain objects that are important to the overall story rather than having Gandalf just tell us. I believe one of these stories involves Legolas who was an unnamed elf in the story.

It's been a long, long time since I read the books but I do vaguely recall this from somewhere.

It was just announced that the two titles will be:

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

and

The Hobbit: There and Back Again

While it's nicer than just Part 1/Part 2, I'd be happier if it was just The Hobbit, and TH: There and Back Again.

If Legolas' role is limited to something minor like this, I won't mind it at all. If he's a major character, I will.

I do not like Orlando Bloom.

It's not just Legolas that's bothering me. It's him, Galadriel and Frodo. Jackson's just cashing in on the star power of the first batch of films adding in unnecessary frills.

That being said, the idea of how it's going to be done, DOES intrigue me.

I can't really see how they make him a major part of the films, that would require a lot of new story.

Though maybe they want more diversity in the travelling party, being mainly hobbit and dwarf.

Damn, I wrote such a long post and it's gone due to 'maintenance'! Arrrgh.

So...

I think Legolas will be just a minor character. Remember, the company do pass through Mirkwood and wood elves take part in the battle against the army of wargs and goblins so Legolas could be there somewhere.

Frodo's role I think will be a sort of narrator's who recollects his memories of what Bilbo told about his journey.

No idea as to what Galadriel is doing in the Hobbit though

I'm just going to say this now.

It's going to be very, very hard to watch Freeman with a straight face.

No, I don't hate them at all. Love the films, especially the extended versions.

I just take issue with some of Jackson's directorial choices. I can't think of anyone else who wouldn't have fucked them up worse. Maybe Guillermo del Toro. I was a little bummed when he left the project because I think he's a far better visualist than PJ.

The material is a soft pitch so Freeman should be able to hit a home run.

Hey Laz, guess who was just recently cast in this as a female elf...

Here's a hint - freckles.

This astounds me. Cos I've only read your negative comments towards the films....or maybe ignored it when you said positive things, that's possible.

I always keep silent when the trilogy gets bashed around here, but, I'm a HUGE fucking fan. I'm biased as hell, of course, grew up cherishing those books, but still. I'll sit and watch the Extended versions any time....looking forward to getting my Blu versions of them.

Oh, and, The Silmarillion FTW.

There's a third picture out there of PJ on set, and it looks like he turned back into his unhealthy fat hobbit self, he'll have to take on an over-budget stressful project again after this to get back to fighting weight.
