Is this a prequel to the Lord of The Rings trilogy?

I'd figured that Jackson would bring the other novels in their film adaptions at somepoint, especially with Sauron.

Yeah, it's a prequel focusing on Bilbo Baggins, 12 dwarves trying to retake their home from a dragon, and Gandalf. Sauron probably won't be in it, though. I think he was vaguely mentioned in the book at one point, but didn't actually appear.

"The Hobbit" may wind up being filmed somewhere else besides New Zealand, which is where the other LOTR's movies were filmed:

That's a real shame. New Zealand has some beautiful landscapes. Filming there added a strong feeling of authenticity to the film as a whole. I was hoping to see some of the landscapes return in The Hobbit, particularly since LOTR has Frodo and his friends partially following the footsteps of Bilbo's earlier adventure.

It almost seems wrong for it to be filmed anywhere else. New Zealand is Middle Earth.

Well, it seems like things are finally moving forward. I'm glad Jackson is directing it; that should help ensure it fits more tightly with the universe established in the LoTR films. Now if they can just get the labor disputes solved, maybe the movie will finally get finished.

I don't think I've ever seen anything this guy has done. Is anyone else familiar with him? Is he a good actor?

So, I guess that this is going to be a series of two movies. I'm glad; there's way too much happening in the Hobbit story for just one.

"Hobbit" is in the news again, sort of, as MGM files for bankruptcy:

Hopefully, this won't have too much of an effect on "Hobbit".
