I’m looking forward to seeing the Hobbit later on today. First I must feast on something delicious (as I’ve been up since 3 AM. Yeah, I love working at night!). :-P
So, without further ado and on behalf of New Line Cinema, Warner Bros. Pictures, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, Wingnut Films, and the entire cast and crew of “The Hobbit” films, I’d like to announce that two films will become three.

Previously, they had decided to turn The Hobbit into two separate films, one release this December and one release in December 2013. Now they’re adding a third film, with footage they shot — based not only on The Hobbit, but on the appendices of The Lord of the Rings as well.
The Hobbit to be three films instead of two?
