Topher Grace Re-Edited ‘The Hobbit’ Into A Single 2-Hour Film

No matter where you go, you’d be hard-pressed to find a person who isn’t a fan of Peter Jackson’s retelling of the J.R.R. Tolkien classic, The Hobbit. While he was able to bring this epic tale to life on the big screen, many found themselves a bit bored at times during the lengthy series of films. Which is probably what prompted beloved actor, Topher Grace, to recut the films together into one digestible 2-hour movie.

He Did What?

That 70’s Show star, Topher Grace, made headlines recently when he revealed that he created his own personal, 2-hour version of The Hobbit.

He’s not the first Tolkien fan to yearn for a shorter interpretation of the classic. So, he took it upon himself to make it happen. Now that’s taking initiative.

But Why?

After filming Spike Lee’s latest movie, BlacKkKlansman, in which he portrays detested racist David Duke, Topher took it upon himself in his spare time to create this personal masterpiece of editing.

Since the nature of the movie was so negative, Topher found solace in rewatching The Hobbit films. More than that, he decided to do the fans (and himself) a favor and created a one-movie version of the story.

He’s Done It Before?

If you think this is the first time Topher took it upon himself to recut a collection of films, think again. Years back, he did a similar edit of the Star Wars prequels. I’m sure whatever he created was better.

While we’re incredibly impressed by Topher’s creation, we were saddened to hear that these versions aren’t available to the public. We understand there’s a litany of legal loopholes prohibiting such a release, but we hope that one day we’ll be able to enjoy his quicker theatrical versions. What other movies do you think should be shortened?

The Transformers franchise has worked wonders for Paramount studios. It is one of their most profitable movie series and continues to rake in millions with each release. However, their last two films, The Last Knight and Bumblebee didn't exactly live up to previous films. Bumblebee grossed and netted less than The Last Knight, yet Paramount still considers it a bigger success.
