Elijah Wood as Frodo Baggins. Wood says that his role will be small but is very excited at having the chance to help link the LOTR and The Hobbit. The LOTR films have been a large part of his life.

Eric Goldman at  Ink UK Edition spoke with Elijah Wood about his role in The Hobbit.  He asked Wood if he’d entertained the notion through the years that he might ever get the chance to reprise his role someday.

Replied Wood, “No, we thought we were finished and the character doesn’t even exist in [the book of] The Hobbit, so it was not even a pipe dream to imagine the possibility would be there for me to reprise the role of Frodo. But they’ve come up with something that I think is kind of interesting and I think very fitting that doesn’t necessarily infringe upon the integrity of the original novel. It’s great. I’m really excited.”

“Those films marked a huge, massive experience in my life,” Wood continued. “It’s been 11 years, basically, since I went to New Zealand, so it’ll be a beautiful reunion and I’m just excited to go back and see everybody again.”
