FINALLY, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies is theaters! SO EXCITING!
Written for J.R.R. Tolkien’s own children, The Hobbit met with instant critical acclaim when it was first published in 1937. It is truly an unforgettable, classic tale and the third and final installment of the movie version, of course, is going to be EPIC!!!
“The King beneath the mountains,
The King of carven stone,
The lord of silver fountains
Shall come into his own!
His crown shall be upholden,
His harp shall be restrung,
His halls shall echo golden
To songs of yore re-sung.
The woods shall wave on mountains.
And grass beneath the sun;
His wealth shall flow in fountains
And the rivers golden run.
The streams shall run in gladness,
The lakes shall shine and burn,
And sorrow fail and sadness
At the Mountain-king’s return!”
- J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit
