Now, long before Peter Jackson made those first movies, my 11th grade English teacher placed a copy of The Hobbit on my desk. (My friend and I were in an English class with idiots so the teacher tried to challenge us). I read that book. I even saw the cartoon. Multiple times!
So, I saw the trailer! Now, I'm going to re-read The Hobbit (I last read it in the 11th grade, you know), but here's my first impressions:
- It looks like all the players are back from the first movies. I wouldn't want it any other way! Can you imagine anyone else playing Gandalf but Ian McKellen?
- The visuals are identical to the earlier movies. I bet the sets were like in storage.
- I don't remember Galadriel..... but I'm willing to go with it.
- I tell you this now: I'll probably forever mix up those damn dwarves! There's 12 of them. All with short, similar names!! Though thankfully they all look different. (which may help me in the end.)
