Peter Jackson spoke to Entertainment Weekly about adapting Tolkien’s The Hobbit for film and revealed new pics from the upcoming movie. Jackson revealed he is drawing from multiple Tolkien sources to build an epic prequel to the much-loved Lord Of The Rings trilogy:
“In the movie we want these characters to have story lines and a little more substance than they do in the book. Almost everything we’re doing is from Tolkien somewhere, whether it’s in the book or the subsequent development that wasn’t published in The Hobbit itself.”
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey opens Dec. 14, while The Hobbit: There and Back Again is set for release Dec. 13, 2013.
