I can understand that, but to me it's not that surprising. [In reply to] Can't Post

One of the things that struck me while watching the "making of" doc's for LOTR was that PJ produces huge volumes of material to work from. I expected him to do the same with The Hobbit.

It's really emphasized that PJ is not one of those guys who makes a script then sticks to it, it's all very dynamic and fluid (much to the chagrin, sometimes, of his support staff) and things get added and moved right up until the last minute.

So, mix large volumes of footage with a constant evolution in script and a propensity to make long movies and - voila! - three movies.

This is why it didn't surprise me in the least there were going to be two movies instead of one.

King Arthur: You know much that is hidden oh Tim.

Tim: Quite.
