How Many Incarnations of The Hobbit Are There? Which Do You Prefer? Can't Post

I am eliminating the book from consideration because it is the original and Peter Jackson's live-action movie because it is incomplete. That leaves the NPR radio adaption, the animated movie, the stage play, the stage musical. If I've left anything out or am mistaken on any of the above, please feel free to correct me.

Just for discussion's sake, that leaves open for adaption a live action TV mini-series, an animated one and a graphic novel. Did I leave anything out?

Of the ones already done, I'd have to say I prefer the radio adaption. It comes closest to the experience of reading the book as far as engaging your imagination. And I still clearly recall the actor who performed Gollum -- was it Theodore? -- as being very good and quite chilling.

As for future adaptions, I'd really embrace the idea of a live-action mini-series. I think the nature of the book would lend itself well to an episodic telling. And it would be fun to see what someone with a different style than the only one we know, PJ's, would make of it.

The round door is open. Stop by and share your thoughts (but you'll have to bring your own pipeweed).Smile
