Character Dialogue in The Hobbit Trilogy

Together with Daniel James and Heiko Reinemuth I have been able to do some analysis regarding the dialog of the Hobbit film trilogy over the last few years. I have previously published dialog word counts for An Unexpected Journey and The Desolation of Smaug. Here is a comparison of the entire trilogy.

character_dialogue_hobbit_new

The total dialogue is 9162, 7270 and 5784 words for An Unexpected Journey, The Desolation of Smaug and The Battle of Five Armies respectively. The first movie has quite a lot more dialogue which can be attributed to the lengthy introduction to the quest in the beginning.

The data for this analysis has been put together by the Google+ page The Hobbit Movies of which I am one of the admins. It should not be considered absolutely accurate but rather a good estimate of the dialog.
