It will be 10 years by end of this 2011, since the Fellowship of the Rings directed by Peter Jackson, has launched its screening and bring on a new era of movie experience into the 21st Century.
Subsequent two parts, The Two Towers and Return of the King, are screened on the consecutive years followed in 2002 and 2003.
It spins off many medieval, fantasy based movies thereafter but none could match the immensity of the crews, weapons and props produced for the movie itself. You can still visit hobbitant in New Zealand now.
So for fans alike, I believe the feeling of lost of adventure and returning to reality is like the ending of the Lord of the Rings, where Frodo move on with the Elfs and Gandalf departing Middle Earth. Though peace is brought upon mankind.
So after 10 years, Peter Jackson has started the filming of the next great works of J.R.R Tolkien, The Hobbit. This is prior to Lord of the Rings and published in 21st September 1937.
The Hobbit is set for a two part and will be scheduled to screen in 2012 and 2013 but nothing is firm until we see the actual trailer.
So for now, let's watch a preview from Peter Jackson on the first look of The Hobbit.
For a rememberance, I have listed the trailers of Lord of the Rings for pleasure too.
