The Fellowship of the Ring – the first title of the epic story, The Lord of the Rings – was unleashed on the world way back on 29th July, 1954.

Yes, Peter Jackson has just released a teaser poster for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies …
Well, have a look for yourself here (click on it to enlarge) …
For clarity’s sake, I’ll ask that again …
Do your Middle-earth discs freeze?
“Freeze” as in: stop; pause; halt; momentarily cease to function; 1 frame turns into 10 frames or more?
It is the year when there’s much ado in Middle-earth; not least of which the third installment of The Hobbit next December.
In the meantime, to subdue our cravings for Middle-earth, Warner Bros Home Video will be releasing two remastered animated classics: The Hobbit (1977) and The Return of the King (1980).
The first official image from The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, has been released via Entertainment Weekly.
Tolkien’s creation of the culture of Rohan bears strong and obvious connections to the poem Beowulf. But could the Anglo-Saxon poem’s titular character fit into the world of Middle-earth?
It’s been exactly one year since I wrote my first post for this blog (‘The Journey Begins!’).
Back then I was uncertain how things would develop and I certainly couldn’t see myself still writing about Tolkien 12 months later.
