I agree - the books are so good/popular, they will have quite a job to do in order to measure up. :cool:

I read the books at least once a year. Am really interested to see what they do to the movie but I agree that it would be nicer if they were closer together. I guess they just want to catch that holiday crowd each year.

I remember that animated version. Never really cared for it. Thought it wasn't a good version of the story. :(

I agree, you need to spend more money to do such an epic book justice.

In another thread people were asking when this new film would be released. I can't find the thread, but I have the date.

In 'Dreamwatch' issue 83 -- 'Lord of the Rings' is scheduled for release in the US and UK on 19th Decenber 2001. They are currently reshooting the introduction to the film, dropping a prologue idea with backstories of Isildur and Smeagol, and instead going for Bilbo beginning to write his memoirs at Bag End.
