Heads Up Tolkien Chat Fans!

The Hall of Fire is ready with a new topic for Saturday, May 20, at 5:30 EDT [-5 hours GMT]. Bring your Director’s Chair with you this time, as we take a look at a beloved Tolkien book through the eyes of the movies.

The Silmarillion on Film

Imagine you win the challenge of creating The Silmarillion on film. Like Jackson’s effort on The Lord of the Rings, the task would be enormous and daunting to say the least. Uncountable questions would need answers, like: who would you cast as the characters? Which characters and events would you cut out? How would you approach the project?

We’ll also play around with general Silmarillion film questions, like what scenes we’d love to see on the big screen, how the creation of Arda would be portrayed, and what places would make great locations. Read up and bring along your text for this one!

Contact us with your topic suggestions and feedback. Thanks! : ) Tookish
