I think the most likely follow-up (some Hobbit book and film spoilers) - [In reply to] Can't Post

Do you think we will get more Tolkien movies after The Hobbit trilogy? Will PJ get the green light for more tales, and would he want to?


- would be some version of the 'War in the North'.

It would be both a sequel to the Hobbit Trilogy and a 'sidequel' to the Lord of the Rings movies. I can't see the studios passing up such a potential moneymaker.

Obviously, this is going to require a lot of 'filler-material', but if mainstream audiences are happy with the original material in the Hobbit Trilogy, they may be ready to return to Middle-Earth, once again.

Going by what they did with Legolas, I'd expect the film-makers to take advantage of the popularity of the characters of Thranduil, Thorin's companions, and perhaps even Radagast, Tauriel and Dain, if they're around, while the actors are still available. (Recasting can be tricky. People have gotten used to the two (so far) versions of Bilbo, but there is only ONE Gandalf).

I imagine that there's plenty of unused material from the current two Middle-Earth Trilogies that would be suitable for a follow-up. Personally I'd like to see a 'hidden' D˙nedain fortress. Aragorn's 'dangerous' people seem to have been pretty much side-lined, so far.

There is one part at the end of the Hobbit novel that I could see as a potential movie hook. It was the part where Orcrist was placed on Thorin's tomb (That would definitely give audiences a 'To be continued' vibe.).


---------------------------------------

Apart from the War in the North, I could easily see some spin-off movies set during other times in Middle-Earths's history.

Part of the reason for the huge budgets of the current M-E movies was due to the necessity of adapting the source material. A decent original script movie could work with a lower budget. They just have to get writers with a a talent for writing historical epics and set them loose on Middle-Earth.

From the makers of 'The Lord of the Rings' comes the sequel to Peter Jackson's Hobbit Trilogy -
'The War in the North, Part I : The Sword in the Tomb'.
