Major Movie Announcement

Touted as the "inspiration for the Lord of the Rings," a new movie has been announced! Yes, a movie version of the Silm... errr, no.

Actually, a movie version of the Nibelungenlied. Older fans will recall that in the late 1960s and 1970s, various writers opined that the Nibelungenlied (or the later operatic version, The Ring of the Nibelung which, purportedly was based upon earlier Norse versions of the Nibelungenlied) was the source and inspiration for Tolkien's Lord of the Rings. After all, it featured a dragon, and epic heroes, and good versus evil and dwarfs (not Dwarves) and fighting families and a ring! Very obviously the source of LoTR! But didn't Tolkien dislike Wagner...?

Anyway, marketing blitz soon to follow...
Beleriand, Beleriand,
the borders of the Elven-land.
