The last I heard, Jackson was suing New Line for not giving me a big enough slice of pie.

The way to do The Hobbit is clear ... make it animated! Yeah, somebody like, maybe Ralph Bakshi, with long sequences where you can't make out what's happening onscreen, and some lame songs by some hippie singer, maybe we can get Glenn Yarbrough (and then recycle the songs to make a feature-length movie about Lemmiwinks!)

Nicholas, John's link explains all. Well, all that we're ever going to get explained anyway. It seems they've settled.
What would Wavy do?

Ralph Bakshi didn't animate The Hobbit, that was done by Rankin Bass (who also did The Return of the King as well)

Bakshi animated the first half of the Lord of the Rings saga.

I also heard the news of Jackson Producing The Hobbit and its sequel. Sequel!? What the hell is the sequel to The Hobbit?

I'm glad The Hobbit is now greenlit and problems are resolved. I'm missing those sad scenes put in with enya music Smile

The Hobbit might be in two parts, who knows?

Here's speculation on the "Hobbit sequel?" issue from the fan site TheOneRing.net
http://www.theonering.net/

When the staff here at TheOneRing.net first heard the rumors that the Hobbit film deal would most likely be for two movies, it fueled a lot of speculation. Most of the speculation centers on the idea that the second movie will be a bridge between The Hobbit and Fellowship of the Ring.


Events that could be included in such a bridge movie:

The White Council meets to discuss The Necromancer (aka Sauron)
The White Council (including Saruman and Gandalf) attack The Necromancer’s stronghold at Dol Guldur. This is to prevent Sauron from searching the river for the Ring. Sauron abandons Dol Guldur and takes up residence in Mordor.
Gollum leaves the mountain, searching for the “thief” Baggins.
Sauron declared himself openly, starting to gather power to Mordor.
Aragorn searches the wilds for Gollum.
Aragorn’s engagement to Arwen.
Frodo’s birth.
These are but a few things mentioned in Appendix B of Return of the King. These can be added to and expanded to make the story flow.
