Hello everyone I remember I a few months ago I wrote a blogpost about how we need to to have a chat. We finally have one but nobody is ever on it. WE NEED TO USE THE CHAT.Read more >
I just noticed that one of the polls on the main page for the LOTR Wikia is 'Which movie do you think stayed closest to the book?' or something like that. To my honest surprise, Fellowship of the Ring got top billing (by a freaking mile!). I personally think that it is probably the furthest from the books, and here are my reasons.
The first is that a hell of a lot of parts are missing. The Old Forest, Tom Bombadil, Bill Ferny, Buckland, Glorfindel and a bunch more. The Two Towers kept a lot of scenes, even if it was done on a slightly different timeline. Meanwhile, the Fellowship movie glances over the fact that Pippin travelled with Frodo and Sam from Bag End, Frodo stayed in the Shire for nearly two decades after Bilbo's party and the com…Read more >
Be one of the first to check out at the official community for Shadow of Mordor, the upcoming Lord of the Rings video game from Monolith Studios.
The newly launched Shadow of Mordor community is "official," which means you’ll be among the first to see new trailers, images and gameplay footage, as well as hear all the latest on the title as it develops. Perhaps more impressive, however, is the direct line you’ll have to the game’s creators. We’re talking exclusive Q&As, developer chats, and blogs up the yin-yang!

I was watching the new
Hobbit production diary 12 and found a interesting part of it. If you pause the video at 0:15 there seems to be a new orc (it shows the unfinished part of it). The orc appears to looks like Azog, but it isn't him as it does not have a missing arm. Also, on it's forehead there appears to be metal plates similar to those of Bolg. Is this a new orc, or is it a redesign of Bolg? Perhaps one of Bolg's bodyguards?Read more >

The end credits song for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug has been revealed and the lucky artist is Ed Sheeran! His song "I See Fire" is new and just for the movie, and even cooler is that EVERY instrument on “I See Fire” except for cello was performed by Sheeran himself! Check out the song below.
What do you think? Is this the right song for the end? It's a little odd not to hear some majestic orchestral number, but this could be a nice change. The lyrics also seem like a good fit for all the events we're expecting to see in the movie!

At a recent fan event livestream featuring a Q&A with stars Orlando Bloom, Evangeline Lilly, Lee Pace, Luke Evans, Richard Armitage, and more, a new trailer for the sequel debuted! This one is just as good (maybe even better) than the last trailer we saw where we got our first glimpse at Smaug! Check it out below for Bard the Bowman, Bilbo Baggins running around like a mad man, and what looks to be a Thorin that might be starting to go mad!

Did the dwarves inhabit helms deep at the end of the fourth age? Or did they just take control of the Glittering Caves behind Helms deep? And could the fourth age be named the Dominion of Men and Dwarves because the dwarves took control of all the fortresses and cities after the ring was destroyed?

There's still a few more months before The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug is out in theaters, but fans have been treated to TWO more pieces of promotional art for the movie! Check out the images below!
The first is from the famous barrel scene in the book, and, by the funny looks on the dwarves' faces, we're excited to see it acted out on the big screen! The second image is a new poster showing Smaug's giant eye reflecting poor Bilbo Baggins. We can't wait until the hobbit finally meets the dragon (voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch)!

Could Morgoth use the ring to destroy the Valar?Read more >
Can somone tell me what would happen if Morgoth had the ring?
- He might be too powerful too take it and scorn the gift
- Who would give Morgoth the One Ring anyway (besides Sauron)
- If he had it do you think if he was not wearing it he would die, because, like Sauron, he would invest too much power in it (even more than sauron, because J.R.R Tolkien said that Sauron was more evil than Morgoth)
- If he did have the ring could he and would he overthrow the Valar?
- Or am I setting too much store by the ring, because Manwe and Varda could destroy the ring with a snap of their fingers.

Good and sad news, Tolkien movie fans! Today, one of the principal cast members finished filming and Peter Jackson felt it was necessary to commemorate the time Sir Ian McKellen spent on set as Gandalf with a farewell photo!
McKellen will have been Gandalf for SIX films when all of The Hobbit movies finally come out, and Jackson captioned the photo "Seconds ago we finished our last shot with Gandalf. The end of an incredible adventure that began in 1999. I'm feeling very sad right now."
We are too! McKellen made a great Gandalf so, while it's exciting to see that the movies are finishing up, it's sad to see our great wizard hang up his cloak! We wonder who's going to play Gandalf in twenty years when Hollywood decides to do a remake of LOTR... …

In a recent interview, the good Peter Jackson revealed a bit of what we can expect from the Extended Edition Hobbit DVD/Blu-Ray that will most likely find its way to shelves before the holiday season, purportedly in november, a month prior to The Desolation of Smaug's release.

"You are going to get more of Hobbiton," says producer / co-writer Philippa Boyens. "We always wanted to wend our way through Hobbiton, but in the end Bilbo has to run out of the door."

Check it out, The Hobbit fans! It's been some time since we've heard anything new about The Hobbit movie trilogy, but Entertainment Weekly has just released a first look at Evangeline Lilly as the warrior-elf Tauriel!
According to the actress, "[Tauriel is] slightly reckless and totally ruthless and doesn’t hesitate to kill." She also hinted at some romance by saying, "[Tauriel] will definitely have a love story. I can’t give away too much about it. It’s not a huge focus but it is there and it is important and it does drive Tauriel and her story and her actions."

I have just figured out something about the notoriously mysterious Blue Wizards. They were sent by the Valar Orome, who was a great huntsman. They have some pictures depicting them with bows and arrows. Does this mean that, not only being wizards, the Blue Wizards were also great hunters? That would be pretty cool. Also Alatar's alternate name Morinehtar which means Darkness-Slayer could also mean that they had some hunting/fighting skills. Perhaps they slew the men of darkness in the east? I just thought i would share this with you people, as some people might not know.Read more >

Hey guys! So I was re-reading all of my LOTR books (fellowship of the ring, two towers, return of the king and the hobbit) and somehow felt that it was time to read all 12 books of the history of middle earth. I know, from my own research on the Internet, many of the tales on the War of the ring happen in these 12 books as well. Since I haven't read any of those 12 books, I'd like to ask you guys in which order I should read them and/or if it is worth them all at all, since many of its tales are also found in the Silmarillion(which I also haven't read/ wanna read), meaning that I wouldn't really need to read them all, because they "overlap" each other. Just to clear sth out, I am not only interested in the tales about the war of the ring b…Read more >

Hey there, just putting my little theroy out there, but i was thinking as i watched the hobbit for a third time, that the chest full of gold, which Bilbo(old), talks about in his conversation with frodo, at the start of the movie, is the same chest as the one in the troll cave. The chest which some of the dwarfs find stashed to the brim with gold, which they bury for "safe keeping, as a long-term deposit". Bilbo claims this the only gold he got from the adventure with the dwarfs and Gandalf. I may be wrong, as this is just a myth, but maybe the dwarfs gave it to him as his share after defeating Smaug.Read more >
Calling all The Hobbit fans, we have an amazing opportunity for you! Wikia will be conducting a community interview with Martin Freeman who plays Bilbo Baggins in the The Hobbit trilogy. Post your questions in the comments, and we'll ask the best ones.
What was it like playing Bilbo Baggins? What's it like working with Peter Jackson? Has he heard THIS SONG?
If you have any burning questions about The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, now is your time to ask. We only ask that questions be related to The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, and not any of the upcoming films. We wouldn't want to get Mr. Freeman in trouble!
Thank you for all the amazing questions and be sure to check out the interview below!
I find the similarities between the black arrow and Gurthang very big to be a coincidence. I believe that the sword and the arrow used to kill two of the most famous dragons where actually made of the same material.
The top of a dragon is suposed to be hard as mithril and its underside is descrived as "weaker" and mithril is one if not the strongest materials in Arda, so a dragons underside could still be very strong. I believe that if a dragon`s underside was made of thin and weak skin then Smaug would have been killed while attacking Dale because he did not have his "precious coat" and he certanly took many arrows, even maybe in the region where he would then be pierced by the black arrow, so we can guess that his underside can be as stro…Read more >
Hi! I'm new to LOTR wiki but I am very experienced over at the Merlin Wiki. I would like to take the time to introduce myself.
My username is Merlin artist, I am reasonably talented at art for my age. My real name is Lucy and I am 13 years old. I live in the UK. I am rather clever and get top grades at everything but P.E (I'm trying not to boast). My favourite character from LOTR is Legolas, this is not just because Orlando Bloom portrayed him.
That's pretty much all the basic information about me, if you have a question I quess you could leave a comment. I hope this is not too weird/odd/not the right thing to do but I did not know what was the best way to introduce myself to thiss community.
