Walt Disney Can't Post

Hello, years ago I read that Disney had the LOTR film rights in the 50s and 60s. Is this true, I can't find any reliable source for it. Thank-you.

And Disney-owned Miramax did have the film rights in the 1990s.

"Come not between the Nazgul and his prey! Or he will not slay thee in
thy turn. He will bear thee away to the houses of lamentation, beyond
all darkness, where thy flesh shall be devoured, and thy shrivelled
mind be left naked to the Lidless Eye."
"Do what you will; but I will hinder it, if I may."
"Hinder me? Thou fool. No living man may hinder me!"
"But no living man am I! I am Eowyn, daughter of Theodwyn!"
"Er, really? My mother's name was Theodwyn, too!"
"No way!"
"Way!"
"Wow! Let's stop fighting and be best friends!"
"Cool!!"

Some concept art exists... [In reply to] Can't Post

But it's rare and very hard to track down.

Edit. Here's some: https://twitter.com/.../1034400182081921026
