It's official then! This is so exciting!
Elijah Wood has already spoken out about the just-announced speculation that he will making an appearance in the upcoming, Peter Jackson-directed adaptation of The Hobbit, and confirmed that he's officially signed on to reprise his role as Frodo Baggins!
"We thought we were finished and the character doesn't even exist in [the book of] The Hobbit, so it was not even a pipe dream to imagine the possibility would be there for me to reprise the role of Frodo. But they've come up with something that I think is kind of interesting and I think very fitting that doesn't necessarily infringe upon the integrity of the original novel. It's great. I'm really excited. Those films marked a huge, massive experience in my life. It's been 11 years, basically, since I went to New Zealand, so it'll be a beautiful reunion and I'm just excited to go back and see everybody again. I think it'll [screen time] be relatively minimal. That's my impression. I actually haven't read anything yet. I haven't read a script. I have almost as much information as you guys have!"
We think that his appearance should be kept brief, but we think that it will be a lovely way to link this to The Lord of the Rings trilogy, and we also agree that if done right, it definitely won't take away from the integrity of the book!
What do U think?? Are U excited for Frodo's return??
