Title: The Hobbit
Author: J.R.R. Tolkien
Publisher: Random House
THE GREATEST FANTASY EPIC OF OUR TIME
Bilbo Baggins was a hobbit who wanted to be left alone in quiet comfort. But the wizard Gandalf came along with a band of homeless dwarves. Soon Bilbo was drawn into their quest, facing evil orcs, savage wolves, giant spiders, and worse unknown dangers. Finally, it was Bilbo–alone and unaided–who had to confront the great dragon Smaug, the terror of an entire countryside . . .
“Book to Movie” Monday is where I write what books I would like to see turned into a movie or a book that is already in production.
So this weeks pick is a movie in production and it is The Hobbit!
I was jumping up and down in my seat when I first heard about this, and I am even more excited now that it has been split into three movies. That’s right, not two, but THREE movies.
Peter Jackson, director of The Lord of the Rings trilogy, will also director The Hobbit.
I am also excited to see all my favorites from The Lord of the Rings back on the big screen.
Bring on December 2012!
