With three hugely popular Lord of the Rings movies and a trilogy of Hobbit movies, Tolkien is one hot property in Hollywood. Now there are rumors that Universal is working with the Tolkien estate to create a Middle Earth theme park. If Harry Potter can do it, it shouldn’t be difficult at all to sell a gazillion tickets to a Middle Earth adventure.
Made with 2 million 1x1 bricks, this full scale Hobbit hole with characters from The Hobbit is big enough to walk around in and it even has a smoking chimney. It’s a giant-sized replica of an actual Lego set you can buy called 'The Unexpected Gathering'.
Here it is, boys and girls. Outside of Broadway fans and Tarantino aficionados, The Hobbit is pretty much the last greatly anticipated movie of the year. After years of back and forth over production, directors, and cast, it’s all finally come together and while it may be a while before we see the whole product, we at least get a decent chunk to whet our appetites. The question is, has all the eager anticipation paid off, or are we faced with perhaps the biggest disappointment in the history of movie adaptations?
