Essential Seven Rejected Titles for the Third Hobbit Film

At Comicon Peter Jackson revealed that he wanted the two Hobbit films to become a trilogy. New Line jumped at the chance, and quickly made this happen. This week it was announced that the second film would be renamed to The Desolation of Smaug with the third final film titled There and Back Again. The first film will still be called  An Unexpected Journey. Having read the book, I have an idea of how the films will be structured, and it makes sense. However, I think the title The Desolation of Smaug doesn’t work very well with the other titles. The good thing is that it is far better than the Essential Seven Rejected Titles for the third Hobbit Film:

Peter Jackson Third Production Diary

Peter Jackson posted a third Production Diary with this note:

Good news and bad news today. Bad news is that we won’t be doing any Hobbit presentation at Comic Con in San Diego this year. New Line and Warner Bros were very happy to support a presentation, but I declined, simply because I felt it was too early. There’s so much more of the films still to shoot. I just wanted to get that out there, because I’ve seen various references to the possibility of something Hobbity at Comic Con. Hate to disappoint anyone. But something tells me we will be there in force next year.

Now for the good news…

We’ve just finished a new video blog, covering a little more of the first block of shooting. So please enjoy this—at least you don’t have to travel to San Deigo to see it!

I’ve been on the go since wrapping the first shooting block, but I’m about to settle down and get into the much delayed 20 Questions. I’ve a few half-written and will get those done very, very soon! I promise!

Cheers,
Peter J

LEGO Harry Potter & LEGO The Hobbit Video Games

/gamer posted a news story that an employee who works for Traveller’s Tales, confirmed that we are going to see a LEGO Harry Potter this year, and in 2012 a game based on The Hobbit.

“An employee who works at the UK based studio Traveller’s Tales, has confirmed several new Lego titles. First, the long rumored ‘Lego Harry Potter‘ game is indeed coming out and probably around the same time as the new film, which opens on July 17, 2009. Next up is another Indiana Jones adventure, but this time the game will follow the last movie ‘The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.’ If that wasn’t enough, the same staffer confirmed at least one more Batman in Lego form, no word if it will follow the newest film ‘The Dark Knight.’”

“Guess what, the employee also hinted at one more Lego game. The Hobbit film (MGM), which is essentially a prequel to “Lord of the Rings,’ is scheduled to be in theaters sometime in 2012. Apparently, Traveller’s Tales has sealed the rights to create a Lego version game of the film…joy.”

If this is true, I wonder why we haven’t heard anything yet. The film comes out this Summer, and you would think we would have known this sooner. As for the The Hobbit news thats exciting. If LEGO did aquire The Hobbit license, you can be we will also see LEGO sets based on the film.
