I read the book back in high school when the other movies came out (and man was I in to those movies). I guess they're also including a lot of other info that Tolkien only revealed after he had completed the book too (which is why it's going to be able to fit into a trilogy).
Is anyone else looking forward to this movie coming out? I'm just concerned with the fact that it's a trilogy that waiting for the second part will be hard.

I've read the book + the lotr trilogy like 6 times
I do hope they are putting a lot of background information in it. I love Middle Earth and it's history. <3

Yeah, I was quite surprised when I heard that the book would be split into three parts movie-wise, but when I read the explanation/what Peter Jackson suggested, my fears were allayed. It's going to be exciting being able to see the additional material from the appendices and so on in a visual form.
I've been waiting to see the movie since it was confirmed 1-2 years ago. I'm not sold on dividing it up into several parts as the book really wasn't that long when compared to TLOTR books, which Peter Jackson managed to fit into 3-4 hour long movies, but then again they did have to cut out a lot of their story so maybe it will be a good thing.
I think the The Hobbit movies will basically add content on the return of Sauron as the Necromancer of Dol Guldur, the Dwarven rings and the One Ring, and the White Council meetings (Saruman, Elrond, Galadriel, and Gandalf). I'm sure that there might be more than what I just stated though.

The first movie is going to be great. Currently reading through The Hobbit to get ready.
that'll probably ruin the movie for you. 9/10 times books are way better than the movies, so those who read the book first then watch the movie end up disapointed because the movie was not as good as the book was for them.... imo it's better to watch movie first then read book.
