Wood Looking Forward to "Family Reunion"

Elijah Wood spoke with The Hollywood Reporter about the plans to reprise the role of Frodo Baggins for The Hobbit. He spoke about looking forward to the filming his role in the Fall and how good the script is.
“It’s a rare opportunity to revisit a specific time in my life,” Wood told The Hollywood Reporter. “It feels like I’m going back to a giant family reunion in a way; a lot of the same creative team are involved and a number of the cast are coming back.”

“I read the first script and it’s incredible,” Wood noted. “It definitely expounds upon the book; there are already characters that are cast that are not in the book, so that indicates that it goes slightly outside the boundaries in the structure of the original novel.”

“For a while I was excited just at the notion of going back and seeing everybody and playing the character again,” Wood said. “Then sitting down and reading it I became really genuinely excited about the films they were making. I think they’re going to be amazing.”


  1. "there are already characters that are cast that are not in the book"...

    Like Frodo!

    How else were they going to flesh out a relatively small book into 2 epic movies.

  3. Terrible mistake in the last post..could a mod remove that please?

    I meant to say the White Council and The Necromancer to name 2 ways that may not be in the book but do occur in that timeline during the events of The Hobbit.
