The Lords of the Rings trilogy by Peter Jackson was one of the most popular, successful and critically acclaimed franchises in movie history, winning a whole bunch of awards including a lot of Oscars. Naturally, after waiting an appropriate (but still pretty short) period of time, Hollywood wanted to make some more money off the fandom. Enter The Hobbit, starring Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins!
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey raises lots of questions. Like why did they decide to try and squeeze three movies out of a single book? Why is Bilbo even going on this adventure? Are we supposed to care about these dwarves? Why does that one dwarf look so much like Aragorn? What happened to all the cool make-up? Why is everything now CGI? Why is so much of this movie spent talking about the fact that the Lord of the Rings might happen one day? Why does Radagast the Brown have bird poop on his face?!
To answer all these questions and more, step inside the Pitch Meeting that led to The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey! It’ll be super easy, barely an inconvenience.
