This week in EW: We take a deep dive into into The Hobbit, exploring the film’s long, difficult road to the big screen and the critical, sometimes controversial creative decisions director Peter Jackson has made along the way. Precioussssss.
As you might have heard yesterday, next week is The Hobbit Week on The Colbert Report, as Stephen welcomes Sir Ian McKellan on Monday, Martin Freeman on Tuesday, Andy Serkis on Wednesday and Peter Jackson on Thursday. You might know them better by their respective Hobbit characters, Yoda, Voldemort, Sulu and Morpheus.
In the meantime, let’s prepare for the weeklong Tolkien-fest with some classic Middle Earthian moments from The Report. First up, click the gif to watch Stephen put the literary smackdown on fellow LOTR-head James Franco.
