missing the point [In reply to] Can't Post

The fact that Tolkien did not want Disney to film any of his stories was based on his own opinion on Disney and his film business. Tolkien also eschewed fandom, especially the hippies in the US. Well, at least until the illegal copies of his books came out in the States and he began writing those fans back and asked them to spread the word about who the official publisher was here. But to presume a fan of Tolkien should adopt his opinions on the matter of Disney, or anything else is just folly.

Peace, Love and Rock & Roll,
