Compare the time and distance travelled in The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings

LOTRProject Emil over at LOTRProject has painstakingly assembled a new graphic comparing the distance each of our protagonists (Bilbo and Frodo) travel in The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.

I am very happy to reveal this interactive distance vs time chart of the journeys by Bilbo and Frodo in the Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings. It contains information about each day. I hope you will find it interesting.

Where’s Bilbo? – WINNER in our photo competition

With a poster signed by Richard Armitage, Benedict Cumberbatch, Luke Evans, Martin Freeman and Evangeline Lilly up for grabs as the prize, many of you were eager to show us your The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug DVDs and Blu-rays, in photos submitted for our #wheresbilbo competition.  We loved looking at all the entries, and as usual, it was hard to pick a winner!  Lots of people sent in images showing their extensive collections of Middle-earth collectibles, whilst many others took snaps showing their adorable pets taking care of their DVDs.  A group of staff from TORn all voted, and our final overall winner was @WadeAcuff, with his ‘sketchy’ entry:

WadeA

The staffers were impressed by the beautiful artwork shown in Wade’s photo – he’s clearly a talented fellow!

Other images we loved included @LapisLizuli’s dragon eating her DVD:

LizzieC

And @TolkienistView’s clever set of ‘polaroids’:

JamesM

@crazysirius clearly ‘treasures’ her DVD:

AprilF

@RSinsir’s dogs are doing a great job of guarding her ‘precious’:

RebeccaJ

@EmmersChau found her DVD taking a bath – complete with bearded rubber duck! Check out the details on those bottles – the body wash is ‘Elf-repelling’!

EmilyC

Finally, @I_Christina_I was lucky enough to be able to take Bilbo back to his own front door:

Christina

There were many more great entries, including some of folks in costume. Many thanks to all of you who sent in fab photos and entertained us with your creativity (and with much cuteness from various pets!) We wish we could have had more than one winner! Congratulations to Wade – the signed poster will be on its way to him very soon.

Animation students at Dundee University create ‘Concerning Dragons’

Middle-earth fan Kieran contacted us recently to say:

“I’m an animation student at Dundee University, and we’ve just finished a 12 week project which I think you guys will appreciate! We’re massive fans of Tolkien, and we’re really pleased with our short animation… ”

So of course we went over to vimeo to check it out – and we were impressed! The vimeo page tells us, ‘An MSc Animation class project, in association with Axis Animation, to provide an unofficial short animation to tie in with the release of The Hobbit: Desolation Of Smaug. The project took 13 weeks and explores the mysterious origins of the dragons of Middle Earth. ‘

We thought our readers would enjoy it too – so here it is!

Concerning Dragons from Kieran Duncan on Vimeo.

Thanks also to Lilly for letting us know about this.
