  1. Finally against the odds the Toliken estate gave in and let them make the Sillmarillion!


    Spread out over several years till 2021this should be an epic series and it'll be interesting to see how they film certain parts like Ungoliant and the trees and Fingolfin and Morgoth's epic brawl and what they gloss over. One segment deals with Hurin which was to me a riveting story of love and betrayal. Many have not read the Sillmarillion it's not an easy read but fills in so much of the stories that follow it's worth it.

      I appears that Tolkien's son has retired from managing the estate and that a hefty legal dispute has been settled thus opening the way for these movies to proceed..the 4k trailers available lend creedence to this. There are at present old articles supporting the "fake news" as well as recent ones that point to a release date this fall. Guess we'll see I'm optimistic myself...
