- The part I'm most excited about in the film is Bilbo and Gollum's riddle-off. I only read The Hobbit once but I read that section over and over again. I'm pretty sure it will be in this film (or at least I sure hope so!)
- I'm really not sure about having this book as a film trilogy-I tend to prefer shorter films and these sound like they will have so much padding. What do you think?
- I am very excited for Martin Freeman (see above as Bilbo) and Richard Armitage (as Thorin, the main dwarf), both of whom I've been a fan for some years now (starting with "Love Actually" and "North and South" respectively but through other projects as well). Hope to see more of them in other films going forward!
Anyway happy Friday everyone-I'll be back tomorrow with a review and then Sunday with a post for Jane Austen's birthday. Happy reading!
