Know your Dwarves. The Hobbit movie characters are:
The road to making The Hobbit was a predictable one. Peter Jackson's hugely successful work on the three Lord of the Rings movies made an adaptation of The Hobbit inevitable. A fan-base this huge would be irrestible to the companies holding the cinematic rights to Tollkien's books about Middle Earth. Unless part three of the Hobbit bombs out unexpectedly, either a reboot of Lord of the Rings or attempts at Silmarillion, Unfinished Tales, or even Farmer Giles of Ham seems preordained within the next decade.
