Hey you guys,
I have a question regarding the scene in The Desolation of Smaug where Bilbo meets Smaug. I watched the DVD today and realised the term 'Burglarobbit' is nowhere to be found.
Was it in that scene? I'm a bit confused.
I have recently started a czech lotr wikia page: cs.czech-lotr.wiki.com. Anyone who speaks czech is welcomed to contribute!

- ROTK is in a three-way tie with Titanic and Ben Hur for the most Oscars won by a single film — eleven. Moreover, the film series The Lord of the Rings won more Oscars than any other film series.
- Peter Jackson actually used his own phobia of spiders to measure the effectiveness of Shelob's design and animations.
- Sylvester McCoy (the Seventh Doctor) was considered for the role of Bilbo . (He would later go on to play Radagast the Brown in The Hobbit .)
- Uma Thurman and Ethan Hawke were being considered for Éowyn and Éomer. Thurman initially accepted the offer but had to cancel due to pregnancy.
- Sean Connery was originally offered the role of Gandalf , but turned it down because he didn't like the first script. (Another version of this says …
I was looking, and apparently there is going to be a fight scene between Bain, Bard's son, and Smaug. Is Peter Jackson changing it where Bain will kill Smaug instead of Bard? I hope not, because that's how Bard became king in The Hobbit book. Your thoughts?

Calling all Tolkien fans! We need YOUR help to make a LEGO Hobbit personality quiz! To keep us entertained before the next movie and sets are out, we are going to make a personality quiz and you can find out who from The Hobbit you would be!
To help out, submit a question that you think belongs on a personality quiz! We want the final results to be Bilbo Baggins, Gandalf, Gollum, Legolas Greenleaf, or Thorin Oakenshield so your question needs to be fairly vague to keep the mystery of the final result alive! When you submit your question, please include the result for each answer option. For example,
What is your favorite kind of food?
a) A five course meal! - Bilbo

hey! I have a book on learning elvish and I want to know if its worth hours upon hours of studying to learn the language. it is really cool and all but the letters like this ( a`) or something is just plain confusing!
I know every one is hyped and excited for The Hobbit there and back again to come out on the 17th of December . But to finish off The Lord of the Rings franchise Peter jackson could make a movie about The Last alliance of Elves and Men and the movie could show us what happened and the great batlles which happened . Who else thinks this will be a good way to end a awesome franchise
This blog is being created by me as a basic introduction to who I am & my relation to the LoTR books, movies & all other types of media that coincides with this. However, the true purpose of this blog is to discuss the upcoming video game "Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor".
I am not sure how active people are towards commenting on blogs on this wiki, so any comments will be truely appreciated.

So, as a brief introduction before I move on to the main topic, my name is Michael. I am currently 14, approaching 15 in April. My relatively young age meant that as I was growing up, the LoTR movies integrated quite heavily into my childhood. I remember watching all of the 3 original films…
HI guys im a really big fan of The Lord of the RIngs trilogy and The hobbit trilogy and one thing that i have always wanted to know was how many elves lost their lives in The battle of Hornburg whilst coming to the aid of Rohan . We see in the movie that Haldir's death is shown and we see that many elves die either as the Uruk-hai are advancing to the wall or losing their lives when the berseker blows the wall and as they charge into the Uruk-hai pikes can anyone like give me rough estimate please ?
Dragons were ancient, powerful creatures, as feared by others as they were admired in Middle-earth. They were immortal, powerful, and intelligent. Their exact origin is debated, though it was clearly stated that they were created by Morgoth in some sense. Dragons lived throughout the First, Second, and Thirdages of Middle-earth and may have lived longer. They were originally bred by Morgoth during the first age to serve as gigantic shock troopers and mobile artillery. The first dragon ever seen in Middle-earth was Glaurung, who Morgoth used to great effect during the third and fourth battles in the War of the Jewels. Like most of the creatures made or twisted by Morgoth, they were capable of reproducing natually. Dragons were sometimes ref…
How great would it be to finally view Middle-Earth in 3D?
It's a pretty neat idea right?
I'm not saying it would be easy but just imagine using a software that 'Google Maps' uses?
Imagine being able to go in 'street view' at Hobbiton, Minas Tirith or even Gondolin (in the silmarillion) and also the Mines of Moria.
Just an idea..
Get back to me with your views?

Vedui! I am Ethan.walling.33, welcolme to my first blog post. Here i will discuss what weapons from a modern Earth millitary could be used to kill Smaug. These include (But are not limited to):
- Assult Weapons
- War Planes
- Cold War era Nuclear weapons
- Anti-Aircraft guns
- Cluster bombs
- Or just about any other modern Earth weapons you can think of.
I, personally think a missile or nuke would be our best bet,but what about you? Leave your thoughts below. Namaarie!
The Lord of the Rings film trilogy is full of epic battles, iconic scenes and beautiful locations. Many of the scenes stand out, and choosing a top five was very difficult. However, after much pondering, I have come up with (in my opinion) the five most powerful, moving and stunning scenes in the cinematic trilogy. Enjoy!
(WARNING: SPOILERS!) 5. Sam and Frodo's battle against Shelob. This scene could not have been more perfect. The scene is dark (as it should be), creepy and visually striking. Peter Jackson excels at creating an intense and suspenseful atmosphere for this scene.
Not only does this scene keep the audience at the edge of their seats, it delivers a picture-perfect scene of some of the deepest and darkest evil that dwells in the…
So a lego hobbit game has been announced in 2014. But it currently seems it will only contain events from An Unexpected Journey and The Desolation of Smaug. If you enjoyed playing the Lego LOTR game then you will probably enjoy playing a Lego Hobbit game; but without the complete trilogy in the game, it will probably take away some fun of it. So please everyone on this wiki, please sign this petition to push the game's date to 2015 so it can have the events of the 3rd hobbit film. It will mean a lot to the fans. Thanks!

Smaug the Stupendous is featured in the Epic Dragon Battle event of Wikia's Know Days. Let us show our support by voting here!
The cast of The Hobbit sing All I Want for Christmas Is
You featuring Luke Evans, Evangeline Lilly, Richard Armitage,
Martin Freeman and of course, Benedict Cumberbatch!
Most of them are really shy to sing but kudos to Luke Evans! And Richard cracks a joke!
Why does Australia (where I live) get The Desolation of Smaug on boxing day when pretty much the rest of the world gets it on december 13th/14th. It is so unfair! we get it two weeks late! does anybody know why? I know its kinda tradition for it to come out on Boxing day here but still it's unfair!
I know that Hobbit: Desolation of smaug has just been released and all, but befor watching it, look at some images of smaug off the internet. I already have an idea of what he looks like in my head, and I must say, he is the most EPIC dragon I have ever seen! If you have not yet seen the movie, please tell me what you see. In my opinion, the final piice to the Smaug puzzle was an image of him on the side of an airplane.
The Dragons Wiki are hosting battles between dragons of
different books and films. Our very own Smaug the Golden is
competing in this battle. Let us vote for him here: Dragon Battle
Round 2! Right now, there's a tough competition between Smaug and
Who would win? Smaug right? Now let's vote!
Ok i went on IMDB and looked at the Hobbit TDOS page, and then i looked at the cast. I was surprised. Lawrence Makoare is playing Bolg. Is that correct? I thought Conan Stevens was? Another question i have- is Bolg even in TDOS? I have read reviews for the movie but i cant find any information about him.

- 2 Chapter 1: Trouble from the mines
- 3 Chapter 2: The Goblins

None of my characters are characters from LOTR except Sauron, but they are the same races. This story has no LOTR refrences, or anything of the sort. The world is the same as it is in LOTR though. This takes place in the early third age, before the events of the hobbit. I also play LOTRO, so some of the places in this fanfic are taken from the game, I haven't seen a real map of Middle Earth lol. Enjoy!
Dristur the dwarf stepped gingerly down the stairs of Silver Deep. He was a simple miner, an unknown to most. He had found some Iron, and, after showing it to the foreman, Blogir, he was going down to mine more.

Porkenstein1499 (talk) 14:40, November 28, 2013 (UTC)People we have to start using the chat. We have one why isn't anyone ever on it. If more people got on it we could discuss lotr stuff.
Hello everyone I remember I a few months ago I wrote a blogpost about how we need to to have a chat. We finally have one but nobody is ever on it. WE NEED TO USE THE CHAT.
I just noticed that one of the polls on the main page for the LOTR Wikia is 'Which movie do you think stayed closest to the book?' or something like that. To my honest surprise, Fellowship of the Ring got top billing (by a freaking mile!). I personally think that it is probably the furthest from the books, and here are my reasons.
The first is that a hell of a lot of parts are missing. The Old Forest, Tom Bombadil, Bill Ferny, Buckland, Glorfindel and a bunch more. The Two Towers kept a lot of scenes, even if it was done on a slightly different timeline. Meanwhile, the Fellowship movie glances over the fact that Pippin travelled with Frodo and Sam from Bag End, Frodo stayed in the Shire for nearly two decades after Bilbo's party and the com…
Be one of the first to check out at the official community for Shadow of Mordor, the upcoming Lord of the Rings video game from Monolith Studios.
The newly launched Shadow of Mordor community is "official," which means you’ll be among the first to see new trailers, images and gameplay footage, as well as hear all the latest on the title as it develops. Perhaps more impressive, however, is the direct line you’ll have to the game’s creators. We’re talking exclusive Q&As, developer chats, and blogs up the yin-yang!

I was watching the new
Hobbit production diary 12 and found a interesting part of it. If you pause the video at 0:15 there seems to be a new orc (it shows the unfinished part of it). The orc appears to looks like Azog, but it isn't him as it does not have a missing arm. Also, on it's forehead there appears to be metal plates similar to those of Bolg. Is this a new orc, or is it a redesign of Bolg? Perhaps one of Bolg's bodyguards?
Does anyone besides me think Fili and Kili should have their own pages?
The end credits song for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug has been revealed and the lucky artist is Ed Sheeran! His song "I See Fire" is new and just for the movie, and even cooler is that EVERY instrument on “I See Fire” except for cello was performed by Sheeran himself! Check out the song below.
What do you think? Is this the right song for the end? It's a little odd not to hear some majestic orchestral number, but this could be a nice change. The lyrics also seem like a good fit for all the events we're expecting to see in the movie!
At a recent fan event livestream featuring a Q&A with stars Orlando Bloom, Evangeline Lilly, Lee Pace, Luke Evans, Richard Armitage, and more, a new trailer for the sequel debuted! This one is just as good (maybe even better) than the last trailer we saw where we got our first glimpse at Smaug! Check it out below for Bard the Bowman, Bilbo Baggins running around like a mad man, and what looks to be a Thorin that might be starting to go mad!

Here is the new trailer!!! Elves, spiders, SMAUG (Hello, Benedict Cumberbatch)! We are so excited for this to come out!!
Did the dwarves inhabit helms deep at the end of the fourth age? Or did they just take control of the Glittering Caves behind Helms deep? And could the fourth age be named the Dominion of Men and Dwarves because the dwarves took control of all the fortresses and cities after the ring was destroyed? Thanks for all comments!!!!
