Peter Jackson compares The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings

Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson is currently in the process of making his latest trilogy for The Hobbit, with the first film out later this year. The Hobbit takes place before the adventures of the Lord of the Rings movies and Peter has been discussing a few of the differences between the two trilogies.
 
 
Jackson told Collider, “Obviously it shouldn’t feel like anything entirely different but at the same time the characters– The way that I went into it when I got involved as a director was that I’d go into it as exactly the same filmmaker that did Lord of the Rings, like I’m returning to Middle Earth. In the sense that it’s a real place, I’m there to tell another story, but the characters within the story, as well as the story itself, since you’re dealing with thirteen dwarves, it gives you a different tone and a different feel in places than Lord of the Rings did.”
 
He added, “Lord of the Rings was incredibly good and evil, black and white. The world was at stake, Sauron. It was pretty basic, and the tension that was involved in the story. Whereas this one has a slightly more of a fairy tale quality, slaying dragons and going for gold. Just trying to get gold out of the mountain. The elements of the story give you room to change the tone slightly, but in terms of the look and the feel and the filmmaking style I wanted to keep it pretty consistent and keep everything feeling like it’s the same world.”
 
 
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey will star Martin Freeman, Ian McKellan and Orlando Bloom and is set to be released in both the US and the UK on December 14.
