While the ingredients might seem the same -- Middle Earth, hobbits, dwarves, adventure, Gandalf, etc. -- Peter Jackson's upcoming "The Hobbit" trilogy will likely offer up some key differences from his "The Lord Of The Rings" series of movies. And when it comes to the soundtrack, it looks like Jackson will be switching up the game too.

The Hobbit Neil Finn

While the ingredients might seem the same -- Middle Earth, hobbits, dwarves, adventure, Gandalf, etc. -- Peter Jackson's upcoming "The Hobbit" trilogy will likely offer up some key differences from his "The Lord Of The Rings" series of movies. And when it comes to the soundtrack, it looks like Jackson will be switching up the game too.

While 'Fellowship Of The Ring,' 'The Two Towers' and 'The Return Of The King' all featured end credits tunes by women -- Enya, Emiliana Torrini and Annie Lennox respectively -- for "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey," the director has turned to fellow New Zealander and Crowded House member Neil Finn. There's no word yet on the title of the song or if he'll be joined by his bandmates, but it perhaps suggests a different tonal direction for the music that will play as you unstick your feet from the theater floor.

Howard Shore returns to compose the score, and while there are no other soundtrack details yet, with just a couple of months to go until the movie hits theaters, those details should be dropping very soon. Book 'An Unexpected Journey' on December 14th. [The One Ring]
