A Waikato team has embarked on what they hope will be a global study of people's expectations of The Hobbit, in the lead up to the film's release. You can participate, via a Google survey.
The researchers, from the Screen and Media Department or the University of Waikato in Hamilton, working with collaborators in Canada and Denmark, want to study international perceptions, hopes and expectations for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.
Dr Carolyn Michelle from the University of Waikato, who leads the research team, is hoping that more than 1000 people, from around the globe, complete the survey.
“Whether or not you’re a serious Tolkien fan, and even if you’re a Hobbit hater, we want to know what you are thinking and feeling about The Hobbit prior to its release,” she says.
A similar survey was done prior to the release of Avatar in 2009.
To participate, head to the survey page at http://goo.gl/4vsvf.” The survey is in Flash, so it may not be accessible to some tablet and smartphone owners. It takes about 15 minutes to complete, and involves ranking statements about The Hobbit which have appeared on fan sites and in the media, prior to the film's release.
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, directed by Peter Jackson, is due to be released on 12 December.
