I had a feeling this would happen. If it does, let's just hope it'll be at least half as good as Lord of the Rings.

I actually enjoyed The Hobbit more than the LotR books. Probably because it's shorter and less boring.

That, and it didn't have any big battles to speak of.

Pff, that doesn't count. The main character gets knocked out and wakes up after the battle. Weak.

There was already an eagle in the LotR movies.

Yep, but Gwahir king of the Eagles is sent off by gandalf to go save Sam and Frodo at the cracks of doom from the persuing Nazguul. So my guess is that they will have it slapped in.

I wish I could be excited about this, but I found the Hobbit very boring. Listening to all the descriptions of every person Bilbo met really didn't satisfy my reading needs.

I for one was overjoyed to hear this. Even if the Hobbit is a little more cutesy than LotR, that says nothing about its quality (Labyrinth, Willow, anyone?), and there's many things I'd like to see on the big screen... namely Smaug. Also, I'd very much like to John Rhys-Davies back as a dwarf (Gloin would probably be suitable, considering he's Gimli's father). I wonder if Ian McDiarmid would be up to the physical aspect of the role if he'd be cast as Bilbo again... but they could apply the same make-up they used for the brief "flashback" scene at the start of Fellowship of the Ring.

Trolls, treasures, dragon, spiders, bear-man, goblins, Gollum's first show - yessir, I have high hopes for this.

That's Bilbo's cousin Palpatine Baggins.

That's probably from The Sweet Hereafter. Royal has a hard-on for artsy films.
