I know! It's not Narnia...

... but it makes me happy. :)

I never really got into "The Lord of the Rings," written by J.R.R. Tolkien, a good friend of C.S. Lewis. I read the first book and watched the first movie. Then I started reading the second book and got distracted and never finished it. :p

What I did really enjoy, though, was "The Hobbit," the prequel to LOTR. He uses a different writing style, and a more fun fantasy-like adventure.

This is why I'm pretty excited about the new movie coming out from the makers of LOTR: "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey." Part two will be called, "The Hobbit: There and Back Again."

Here is a link to the official blog, where they post news about the production.

I wanted to share with you a couple things that made me happy.

First is the picture at the top of Bilbo. Nice picture! It came from Entertainment Weekly.com. Martin Freeman is playing young Bilbo who gets surprised by the arrival of Gandalf and thirteen dwarves at his small home in the Shire. You can see more Hobbit pictures here.

Second, is a Production Video filmed by the Director, Peter Jackson. What I like about him is he really cares about the series. Andrew Adamson cared about Narnia (at least LWW) a lot, but I don't think Michael Apted did. I heard Peter Jackson was a major LOTR fan and that's why he was chosen to be the director and that's why the films are so true to the book. (Correct me if I'm wrong.) I also like that he cares about his fans. He took time out of his busy schedule to film a video for us, so we can be updated on the status of the film. The first video you can watch below.

The second Production Video came out recently, and it's also very good.

I won't always be posting about Hobbit stuff. It just has been on my mind, and I thought I'd share these pictures and videos with you. :)
