Being that Lord of the Rings are 1) my favorite movies probably of all time, andt 2) they’re the only true fantasy movie I actually enjoy and don’t find silly, I’m excited to see a return to this world.
Personally, I think the mood of the trailer and the clips shown give off a very “Fellowship of the Ring” feeling; introducing character, establishing the story, etc. but at this point it’s still a small adventure — the big picture has yet to unfurl. The big battles that are at the end of The Hobbit book won’t be seen until the second movie, which in my mind is good. LOTR’s format eased us into the epic battles and lore, and the hobbit looks to do the same. I’m very excited to see what these movies will bring.
What about you?
