The Hobbit

With the recent release of The Hobbit movie adaptation, I wanted to share a few interesting facts and resources about Tolkien, The Hobbit, and The Lord of the Rings. Enjoy!

  • There is a The Lord of the Rings symphony.
  • Some universities offer Tolkien classes.
  • Tolkien loved word play and even invented his own languages for fun.
  • The Hobbit was born from a comment Tolkien wrote on a student paper.
  • Starting next school year, GT ILA 8th graders across the district will read The Hobbit as part of the GT ILA course!
