Watch The Hobbit Get 18 Sequels In A Funny Saturday Night Live Sketch

Think two additional Hobbit movies is a bit excessive? How about eighteen? Last night's episode of Saturday Night Live imagined such a scenario with a fake movie trailer that promotes these possible Hobbit followups, and includes a snippet of footage from a few of them. Among them, The Hobbit II: Trying to Split a Complicated Dinner Bill.

Jennifer Lawrence (The Hunger Games, Silver Linings Playbook) hosted the episode, and you'll see her featured in the sketch below, appearing in numerous faux Hobbit sequels as The Elf Queen. In fact, one of those sequels is all about her trying to pick out an outfit…

Here are all of the mentioned titles in the above trailer.

The Hobbit 2: Journey to the Beginning of the Walk to Smaug's LairThe Hobbit 3: Shoot, I Just Realized I Forgot Something Back at the Shire Mind If We Double Back?The Hobbit 4: Apple Maps: An Unexpected DetourThe Hobbit 8: The Elf Queen Tries To Pick An OutfitThe Hobbit II: Trying To Split A Complicated Dinner BillThe Hobbit 13: Gandalf Tries to Remember A NameHobbitz: Back In The HoodGrumpy Old HobbitsThe Hobbit 14: The New BatchSauron: Dead and Loving ItLook Who's Hobbit Now!Hobbit 19: Road Trip

Clever dig at Apple Maps, and I love the awkward dinner bill scene, but I think my favorite is the nod to Gremlins 2. Anyone know what happens if you feed a Hobbit after midnight? I imagine we'd find out in The Hobbit 14: The New Batch.

Watch the other videos from last night's SNL, including the funny Hunger Games sketch, which shows us the post-Games press conference that Katniss and Peeta were subjected to here.
