How many hobbit movies are there

Postby Malalrajas В» 31.07.2019


The Hobbit is a film series consisting of three high fantasy adventure films directed by Peter Jackson. They are based on the novel The Hobbit by J. Tolkien , with large portions of the trilogy inspired by the appendices to The Return of the King , which expand on the story told in The Hobbit , as well as new material and characters written especially for the films. Together they act as a prequel to Jackson's The Lord of the Rings film trilogy.

The screenplay was written by Fran Walsh , Philippa Boyens , Jackson, and Guillermo del Toro , who was originally chosen to direct before his departure from the project. The films take place in the fictional world of Middle-earth sixty years before the beginning of The Lord of the Rings , and follow hobbit Bilbo Baggins Martin Freeman , who is convinced by the wizard Gandalf the Grey Ian McKellen to accompany thirteen dwarves , led by Thorin Oakenshield Richard Armitage , on a quest to reclaim the Lonely Mountain from the dragon Smaug voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch.

The films also expand upon certain elements from the novel and other source material, such as Gandalf's investigation at Dol Guldur , and the pursuit of Azog and Bolg, who seek vengeance against Thorin and his kindred. Also returning for production, among others, were illustrators John Howe and Alan Lee , art director Dan Hennah , cinematographer Andrew Lesnie , and composer Howard Shore , while props were again crafted by Weta Workshop , with visual effects managed by Weta Digital. One hundred thousand people lined the red carpet on Courtenay Place , and the entire event was broadcast live on television in New Zealand and streamed over the Internet.

Despite critics considering the series inferior to its predecessor The Lord of the Rings , it was successful financially; The Hobbit trilogy is one of the highest-grossing film series of all time. It was also nominated for various awards and won several , although not as many as the original trilogy. Jackson and Walsh originally expressed interest in filming The Hobbit in , then envisaging it as part one of a trilogy part two would have been based on The Lord of the Rings.

Weinstein asked Jackson to press on with adapting The Lord of the Rings. In March , Jackson launched a lawsuit against New Line, claiming he had lost revenue from merchandising, video and computer games releases associated with The Fellowship of the Ring. He said, "I really respect and admire Peter and would love for him to be creatively involved in some way in The Hobbit.

The two studios would co-finance the film and the latter studio via 20th Century Fox would distribute the film outside North America—New Line's first ever such deal with another major studio. The suit claimed the Estate was entitled to 7. The suit also sought to block the filming of The Hobbit. The suit was settled in September for an undisclosed amount.

This amount was the Trust's estimated share in respect of the gross profit participation due for the films based on "The Lord of the Rings". The trustees acknowledge that New Line may now proceed with its proposed film of The Hobbit. Despite the legal suits, development proceeded and in April , Guillermo del Toro was hired to direct the film. Though that project stalled, they kept in contact. I don't like sword and sorcery, I hate all that stuff".

He also posted that his appreciation of Tolkien was enhanced by his knowledge of the fantasy genre and the folklore research he had undertaken while making his own fantasy films. By November , del Toro had said that he, Jackson, Walsh and Boyens would realise something new about the story every week and the script was continually changing.

Completion of the story outlines and treatments ended in March and the studios approved the start of writing the screenplay. Jackson revealed in late November that he anticipated that the script for The Hobbit would not be finished until the beginning of , delaying the start of production until the middle of that summer several months later than previously anticipated. The first film will stand on its own and the second will be a transition and fusion with Peter's world. I plan to change and expand the visuals from Peter's and I know the world can be portrayed in a different way.

Different is better for the first one. For the second, I have the responsibility of finding a slow progression and mimicking the style of Peter. Del Toro and Jackson had a positive working relationship, in which they compromised on disagreements for the benefit of the film. Del Toro shares Jackson's passion for scale models and background paintings, [40] though he wanted to increase the use of animatronics ; "We really want to take the state-of-the-art animatronics and take a leap ten years into the future with the technology we will develop for the creatures in the movie.

We have every intention to do for animatronics and special effects what the other films did for virtual reality. Del Toro said that he interpreted The Hobbit as being set in a "world that is slightly more golden at the beginning, a very innocent environment", and that the film would need to "[take] you from a time of more purity to a darker reality throughout the film, but [in a manner] in the spirit of the book".

Del Toro met concept artists John Howe and Alan Lee , Weta Workshop head Richard Taylor , and make-up artist Gino Acevedo in order to keep continuity with the previous films, [27] and he also hired comic book artists to complement Howe's and Lee's style on the trilogy, [44] including Mike Mignola and Wayne Barlowe , who began work around April Del Toro also wanted the animals to speak so that Smaug's speech would not be incongruous, though he explained portraying the talking animals would be more about showing that other characters can understand them.

Del Toro and Jackson considered the sudden introduction of Bard the Bowman and Bilbo's unconsciousness during the Battle of the Five Armies to be "less cinematic moments" reminiscent of the novel's greater "fairy tale world" than The Lord of the Rings , and they would change them to make The Hobbit feel more like the trilogy. Several actors were considered by del Toro for roles in the film. He wrote the part of Beorn specifically for American actor Ron Perlman.

In December , Philippa Boyens expressed regret that del Toro's version of the film remained unmade. She revealed that it would have had a different script and visual elements, and would more closely have resembled a fairy tale. In , del Toro left the project because of ongoing delays. On 28 May he explained at a press conference that owing to MGM's financial troubles the Hobbit project had then not been officially green-lit at the time.

We have designed all the creatures. We've designed the sets and the wardrobe. We have done animatics and planned very lengthy action sequences. We have scary sequences and funny sequences and we are very, very prepared for when it's finally triggered, but we don't know anything until MGM is solved. I remain an ally to it and its makers, present and future, and fully support a smooth transition to a new director".

However, this incident received negative reaction from many Hobbit fans, who were angry at MGM for delaying the project. They also tried willing the studio to sell their rights to Warner Bros. These are very complicated movies, economically and politically. On 25 June , Jackson was reported to be in negotiations to direct the two-part film. It's an all-immersive journey into a very special place of imagination, beauty and drama. In return, the government agreed to introduce legislation to remove the right of workers to organise trade unions in the film production industry and to give money to big budget films made in New Zealand.

The Employment Relations Film Production Work Amendment Bill was introduced on 28 October after an urgency motion, allowing it to pass its final readings the next day, 66 votes in favour to 50 opposed. Some have subsequently called the price further financial subsidies and specific laws made for the producers' benefit that New Zealand had to pay to retain the movie 'extortionate'. It was also argued that the discussion had occurred in a climate of 'hyperbole and hysteria'. In February , emails and documents released under orders of the Ombudsman showed that the union representing actors had already reached an agreement with Warner two days before 20 October protest, [76] [77] but Warner refused to confirm the deal publicly.

One union representative said those on the march were 'patsies' that had been fooled into thinking the production would be taken offshore. The project had been envisaged as two parts since , but the proposed contents of the parts changed during development. He mysteriously vanishes for a while and then comes back, but we don't really know what goes on. After his hiring in , del Toro confirmed the sequel would be about "trying to reconcile the facts of the first movie with a slightly different point of view.

You would be able to see events that were not witnessed in the first. That's why we are thinking of the two instalments as parts of a single narrative.

That's why I keep putting down the use of a "bridge" film posited initially. I think the concept as such is not relevant any more. I believe that the narrative and characters are rich enough to fit in two films. Del Toro said that he was faced with two possible places to split the story, [32] including Smaug's defeat. He noted the second film would need to end by leading directly into The Fellowship of the Ring.

Although The Hobbit was originally made as a two-part film, on 30 July , Jackson confirmed plans for a third film, turning his adaptation of The Hobbit into a trilogy. While the third film, which as its title indicates, depicts the Battle of the Five Armies, largely made use of footage originally shot for the first and second films, it required additional filming as well.

On the title change, Jackson said, " There and Back Again felt like the right name for the second of a two film telling of the quest to reclaim Erebor, when Bilbo's arrival there, and departure, were both contained within the second film. But with three movies, it suddenly felt misplaced—after all, Bilbo has already arrived "there" in the Desolation of Smaug ".

The following is a list of cast members who voiced or portrayed characters appearing in The Hobbit films. In early October , it was confirmed by the studio that Martin Freeman had been cast in the role of Bilbo Baggins. It was revealed that he had earlier been approached by the producers to play a role in the films, but was forced to turn it down because of scheduling conflicts with the BBC television series Sherlock.

At the time, Freeman was quoted as saying, "[I]f something could be worked out, that would be great. I did it [turned down the role] with a heavy heart, definitely. There are a few times in your career when you come across an actor who you know was born to play a role, but that was the case as soon as I met Martin Freeman. He is intelligent, funny, surprising and brave—exactly like Bilbo and I feel incredibly proud to be able to announce that he is our Hobbit.

On the casting of Armitage, Jackson was quoted as saying, "Richard is one of the most exciting and dynamic actors working on screen today and we know he is going to make an amazing Thorin Oakenshield. We cannot wait to start this adventure with him and feel very lucky that one of the most beloved characters in Middle Earth is in such good hands. I can't think of anything comparable.

On the casting of Turner, Jackson stated, "Aidan is a wonderfully gifted young actor who hails from Ireland. I am thrilled to be working with [him] on these movies. On his casting Callen stated, "I did wonder about my casting and how they had made the choice—maybe the long hair and the beard sold it, I thought. But now that has all gone.

We feel very lucky to be able to welcome him as one of our cast. I look forward to seeing him bring Ori to life. On her casting, Jackson said, "Cate is one of my favorite actors to work with and I couldn't be more thrilled to have her reprise the role she so beautifully brought to life in the earlier films.

Since seeing him read for the role we can't imagine anyone else playing this character. On 7 January , TheOneRing. As Frodo hadn't been born during the events of The Hobbit , the inclusion of Frodo indicated that parts of the story would take place shortly before or during the events of The Lord of the Rings. According to TheOneRing. The fictional book and either the telling from it or the reading of it, will establish Frodo in the film experiencing Bilbo's story.

Viewers are to learn the tale of 'The Hobbit' as a familiar Frodo gets the tale as well. I don't want to give the producers the impression that I'm sitting waiting.

Cars vip I doubt the "Hobbit Trilogy" will ever be as highly regarded as "LOTR", "Desolation", the second installment of the trilogy, provides an even stronger fantasy adventure than the first installment, with a faster pace, beautiful sets, beautiful score and costuming and stunning CGI special effects.
