Tolkien’s daughter suing producers of The Hobbit. The Tolkien family and hobbitt fans are unhappy about Warner Bros using hobbitts to sell online and casino gambling, which violates the licensing contract. We predict this will go badly for Warner Bros. When the Shire gets upset, the forces of Morgoth tremble.

I wonder what Tolkien’s daughter was most upset over, the gambling link or them using her picture for the redhead in the photo?

The Hobbit was first, the article states LOTH was first, but that’s wrong.
Looks like I’ll have to just keep watching:
1977 animated version til someone with ethics comes along.

Not only was The Hobbitt first, it was a much better novel in my not-so-humble opinion. And here’s another tidbit: the real hero in the Lord of the Rings trilogy was Samwise Gamgee, not Frodo Baggins – I don’t know how people can get so fanatical about these books and not see such an obvious point.

One more point: Frodo was just about the worst casting call I’ve ever seen in a movie. They cast a skinny little sissy boy. Hobbitts are short and plain and tough, not pretty boys in tights.
