In spite of what I wrote in my last post about being pleased to have a second Hobbit movie to look forward to, this proposed plan seems to be taking things too far! What do you think? Is there a way to see this, if it happens, as anything other than a mercenary move? Is it possible that Jackson has always been itching to film material from the appendices and the success of his first three Tolkien films made it possible for him to use The Hobbit film to get the job done?
Also, since many of my posts are on the subject of art, I can’t resist posting a link to this masterpiece.
