It's hard to believe that The Hobbit : An Unexpected Journey will hit theatres in less than two months—and it's also hard to believe that almost 10 years have passed since we saw The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King in theaters. But what's really amazing is that Elijah Wood, who played our brave Hobbit, Frodo Baggins, has barely changed at all.
Frodo Baggins sitting on the Iron Throne? Yep, you read that right. Well its only sorta, kinda because Middle-earth and Westeros are two very different (albeit awesome) beasts. But the thing actually happened when Frodo himself, actor Elijah Wood, visited the Game of Thrones set in a recent visit to Belfast. Potential. Mindblowing. Moment. Coming up.
The best thing about Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings trilogy may have been the opportunity to see Andy Serkis take the weird-but-benign Smeagol and turn him into the desperate and terrifying Gollum. But Frodo very nearly met the same fate.
We've known for a while that Elijah Wood was headed back to Hobbiton to don the wig, ears and feet of Frodo Baggins once again for Peter Jackson's The Hobbit. What we didn't know was exactly why, but new photos and a visit to the set are shedding light on where Frodo fits in.
The once and future Frodo Baggins just finished his bit for The Hobbit—which director Peter Jackson is shooting in 3D—and while Wood sees nothing wrong with 3D, in theory, the way George Lucas is doing it for the Star Wars saga is pissing him off.
Take out the pipe-weed, because Frodo's coming back to Middle-earth! Not only has Elijah Wood been confirmed to reprise his role of the couragous hobbit who climbed Mount Doom in order to destroy the One Ring for Peter Jackson's The Hobbit, but we also know HOW Frodo will make his appearance in the two-parter.
