    If the last Hobbit movie disappointed you, spend some time instead watching an interview with J.R.R. Tolkien himself. http://t.co/otzAt1VLj6

    Don’t expect any Silmarillion movies any time soon because Peter Jackson doesn’t own the film rights.

    You might think it to unwieldy a book to ever adapt for the screen, but what if it was a mini-series of some sort where different eras were plotted out into individual stories?

    One fan is doing just that, imagining it as a three-season animated series. It’s watch it in a heartbeat. Check out his designs here: http://ow.ly/sQEWQ

    Could you imagine The Hobbit if the main character was a girl instead of the familiar male Bilbo? One mother began reading the story with a female protagonist to her young daughter after the girl insisted that Bilbo was, in fact, a girl.

    The idea is interesting and the mother argues that it’s a worthwhile exercise considering that female characters are under-represented in these sorts of stories. Maybe so, but I’d prefer to stick to the gender that the author intended. Leave it to a modern author to create a classic children’s story to take on the patriarchy.

    If it weren’t for Stanley Unwin’s son liking The Hobbit, it might never have been published. Listen to this BBC report. http://t.co/C5m0MS4P

    Say it ain’t so! The Hobbit movie has gone from being two movies to three. Talk about a cash grab. http://t.co/bu1hX3zC
