An Eagle’s View of Middle-earth

These limited edition 3D glasses for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey will be available in select cinemas this December. They appear to be forged by dwarves; the only problem is that dwarves are not exactly known for stylish and comfortable gear. (Rifflo)

  • In case you missed the original broadcast, BBC Radio 4 have the story of Tolkien In Love available for streaming until 10 August. They also have The Hobbit, the Musical, the story of the first ever stage production of The Hobbit, narrated by actor Billy Boyd, available until 11 August. Both of these recordings may only be accessible by UK listeners. (Evie Bowman)

This scene is brought to you in honor of the Olympic torchbearers. After you watch this version, you’ll never be able to watch the scene the same way again. (Arwen Kester)

  • Swedish couple John Higson and Marie Eriksson have plans to build a self-sufficient Hobbit village with the help of Simon Dale who built his fantastic hobbit home in Wales. They even want to have their own brewery, dairy, and bakery, but figure they should start with the pub, to keep all of the construction workers happy. (Lily Milos)
  • The One Ring Adventures is a new podcast featuring The One Ring: RPG that is a mixture of table top gaming and dramatized storytelling. Their second audio trailer, entitled “Whispers of Hate” is now available. (Rifflo)

This exists. It was only a matter of time. (Bandoras)
