Beyond The Mind's Eye

The literature of J. R. R. Tolkien has firmly stood the test of time.  One of his most loved pieces, The Hobbit, as most people know, will be brought to movie viewers in two separate films in 2012 and 2013.  Director Peter Jackson has began filming in New Zealand.  The Hobbit Blog has been up and running since late February of this year.  On March 20, 2011 Peter Jackson created a new Facebook profile as an additional venue for fans to get the latest. 
Although I continually remind my students that the  books are always better than the movies (some of them are starting to openly agree with me), if anyone can do justice to The Hobbit, it is Peter Jackson.  His cinematic interpretation of The Lord of the Rings trilogy is phenomenal.

There is a ten minute video on his Facebook page that is a behind-the-scenes peek at the initial stages of production.  How many readers will be reading this book yet again before the movie hits theaters?  I know I will.
