Also not really sure how they're planning an extended edition for these when they're already spreading a small book over 3 movies.
I agree, I'm not keen on the idea of too much CGI since the costumes in the LOTR were pretty damn good. Though at the same time Gollum and a few other characters were all CGI and they did look good also.
And I'm not getting the need for three movies either. It can only be to boost cliffhanger/ hype scenes and rake in the moolah. So be it, it's business. Still, all the other books were covered in @3 hour films. That would certainly be enough time to put together a great version of The Hobbit.

Perhaps I'm a minority in this way, since I've read The Hobbit but never the LOTR trilogy all I know about it came from the films. As far as I can tell Jackson plus the cast and crew did a great job.
