Good news in the Shire

A month ago I wrote a blog titled, "A Plea for the upcoming Hobbit film" in which I wrote about a hope for the powers-that-be to not make a "bridging film" for the upcoming Hobbit films.

Well, apparently my hopes weren't dashed after all.

“We’ve decided to have The Hobbit span the two movies, including the White Council and the comings and goings of Gandalf to Dol Guldur,” says Del Toro.

“We decided it would be a mistake to try to cram everything into one movie,” adds Jackson. “The essential brief was to do The Hobbit, and it allows us to make The Hobbit in a little more style, if you like, of the [LOTR] trilogy.”
Good news indeed.
