Splitting “The Hobbit” Into 3 Movies: 99 pages, 105 pages, and 62 pages [Pic]

Part 1: 99 pages.
Part 2: 105 pages.
Part 3: 62 pages.

There are plenty of short novels that have been adapted into full length movies, so we can’t exactly say Peter Jackson committed a crime by splitting “The Hobbit” into three movies! Oh, and if you haven’t read the original book yet, do yourself a favor and read it!

  1. Well, to be fair, Jackson is also bringing in a good deal of material from other sources, such as the Silmarillion, which Tolkien did intend to be included in The Hobbit, but other constraints forced him to cut out.

  2. Jackson should start working with the Silmarillion. Sadly, based on the first two films, I think the 1977 animated version was a better adaptation. Jackson’s seems like a pure money grab.

  3. Shame people don’t realize that the added plots come from the lord of the rings trilogy and the 13 books of Middle Earth (including the Silmarillion) which help the story along seeing that the Hobbit book has several plot holes in it, such as how in the middle of the book Gandalf leaves and we never hear from him again till the end of it.
