Absolutely. Glad they got Ian McKellen to come back as Gandalf.

Oh hells yea. Especially with all the stops and starts and controversies so far...so glad to see it finally under way. I've seen a couple of crews scouting locations around NZ too.

They are filming it with a high frame rate per second technology. Its going to look amazing, even better than LOTR

I'd rather watch the cartoons than Peter Jackson's hammy, garish, and pretentious movies.

His passion and love for LOTR is what made it so great. No one could have done a better job IMO

I hope they keep some of the humor and cleverness of the original story, and dont try to make it a dark, brooding movie ala 300. I could do without most of the songs though.

I hated most of the casting for LOTR. At least Bilbo will be different, didn't like that casting before or the Hobbits who I hear will be back
