Wood confirmed for THE HOBBIT
Gandalf isn’t the only one coming back to THE HOBBIT.
The One Ring has confirmed that Elijah Wood is set to return as Frodo Baggins, the protagonist from THE LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy, in a bookending style that gives some continuity between the LOTR and the two new Hobit films.
Woods will join Cate Blanchet and Ian McKellan in the new production, which chronicles not only the THE HOBBIT but also weaves in pieces from some of the other side tales to give enough source material for two, two hour movies. Part of Sauron manifested during the quest to slay Smaug, so when Gandalf disappears from the Bilbo’s quest, the new movies will follow him as he slips off to battle the other forces of darkness.
Rumors have it that Hugo Weaving, Sean Astin, John Rhys-Davies and Orlando Bloom will also be returning for the new film, but none of this has been confirmed.
