Even though most of the same people worked on the Lord Of The Rings and The Hobbit movies, The Hobbit movies look horrible to me. Horrible make-up. Let's hope that everything will be top-notch for the Tower movies!Rhea is cast and in it! And Roy Depape too.
I don't know about a full green light. But when you look at art department and effects, it's all from people who've done major films, and films with great visuals. I have a feeling they're aiming big and it will look great.
I think in fantasy films, one of the most important things is to get the look of it all right.
