Read the book, seen the cartoon, really enjoyed the LOTR movies, and am looking forward to this one as well. Guess I'm more of a fan than I thought.

Jackson did a really good job of capturing Tolkien's atmosphere, though. The movies aren't spot-on -- I totally agree on the books being better, but I've always thought for a movie adaption of a book, the LoTR films are amazing. The music is so damn good.

I'm stoked for this. The Hobbit is a good one.

I love that the guy from BBCs new Sherlock is playing both the Necromancer and is the voice of Smaug. Since Bilbo played Dr Watson it's only natural!

Oh Smaug... I can't wait to see you!

I agree but from what I remember he didn't have any roll to play in the original Hobbit book. While surfing the internet I did find this: Deleted Tweets Indicate Possible UK ‘Hobbit’ Set Guests | Hobbit Movie News and Rumors | TheOneRing.net

Looks like Christopher Lee AKA Saruman is making an appearance in the Hobbit too, which probably mean Jackson is putting the White Council and the whole Necromancer/Sauron subplot into the movie that never appeared in the original book. For those who don't remember Gandalf leaves the party a few times to run some errands, one of those being the White Council and the other being the fight against the Necromancer. Neither of these events are described in the Hobbit and are just hinted at in the Lord of the Rings and explained in the Appendices (IIRC).

Yes, I'm a massive LotR nerd and know way too much about it for my own good.

Which means Galadriel will have a good part as well, she is on the White council.
