Is it possible that there isn´t a LotR thread?
I searched for it with no luck... please merge if appropiate
The Hobbit is my favorite book of the saga and finally Peter Jackson is filming it!! It´s a two part movie, the first one will be released on 2012 (hope the world doesn´t end before it premieres ). Actors from the original saga are back with the addition of Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins.
I've actually never read any of the LOTR books or The Hobbit, but I LOVE the LOTR trilogy!
I'm so excited to see all those characters again and then some! So excited!!!
I haven't watched my LOTR dvds in such a long time, because I've worn them out.
Those movies are amazing! I really hope The Hobbit lives up to those standards.
We had to read The Hobbit when I was in the 10th grade, but I couldn't finish it (wasn't my cup of tea).
However, I do remember a very creepy scene involving Gollum and Bilbo in a cave, so that will be great to see on-screen.
It's funny because I was never really fussed about the LOTR trilogy. I saw them and they are a masterpiece of film making, but not really my thing. But I have developed much more of an interest in The Hobbit. Probably because it's such a strong British cast, sort of can't let work go on that account, and I love that they really haven't cast big names (Mckellen/Blanchett/Serkis and other LOTR alum not withstanding) this time. I know LOTR was what made a lot of the actors last time but Viggo, Elijah, Ian we known for their film work and I know that Martin Freeman is sort of known but not a star..yet! I think particularly Aidan, Richard and probably Rob most of all have a big shock coming to them! If that made any sense to you then well done because I'm barely making sense to myself today lol!
Words cannot describe how excited I am for this. I was too young to remember anything on how huge LotR was when it first came out but oh, my crush on Legolas was everlasting. Best movies ever, best music ever, best battle scenes ever, best scenery ever, best actors ever. I am back reading the books after a long time so my love for LotR is back full force.
If only they did a sequel and I could play Lothiriel and be wife to Eomer.
Who also still gets anxious when the Nazgul first try to get the Hobbits? Heart attack.

@Empress Merel: The crush I developed on Legolas (aka Orlando Bloom) when I first saw The Fellowship of the Ring back in 2001 was hardcore!
I'm just now getting over it, but oh goodness...there was no one else. Just him.
My wall was covered in Orlando Bloom posters.
^the major characters are the same, with the addition of a few new ones
Cate, Orlando, Ian, Christopher, Elijah, Andy´s characters are back.
I read that Being Human´s Aidan Turner is playing Kili. I like the guy, hope this brings him major international recognition!
