Tolkien rewrote a couple chapters [In reply to] Can't Post

from what I understand not a complete rewrite like Jackson keeps trying to tell everyone.Crazy Tolkien mainly rewrote Riddles in the dark to have Gollum's character fit better from the Hobbit to LOTR. As far as I know NO other rewrites have been published in the Hobbit or were ever going to be published. Tolkien realized once he tried changing the Hobbit more towards the style of LOTR it didn't feel like the Hobbit any longer. So he abandoned any total rewrite of it.

Some of the events from UT and the appendices (which there are very few pages about the Hobbit in) were written to flesh out the Hobbit but were never meant to be part of the story proper of the Hobbit. From my understanding they were written just to satisfy Tolkien in fleshing out the characters he created, and not to be part of the story of the Hobbit. Hence the reason they are unfinished tales IMO Wink

Why didn't they state in the credits The Movie was partly based/'inspired' by addtional material taken from LOTR and its appendices? malickfan Send a private message to malickfan May 17 2013, 6:09pm

                            The 2 Chapters from the 1960's rewrite is defintitely worth reading (The History of The Hobbit is more than equal to the HOME)... malickfan Send a private message to malickfan May 18 2013, 7:28pm

                        I swear just as much of the additional materil was actually taken from sources other than the appendices. malickfan Send a private message to malickfan May 18 2013, 7:57pm
