“Tolkien has called this story, which he first began writing in 1917, “the first real story of this imaginary world”; i.e., it was one of the first tales to be put to paper. “
It seems like this Middle Earth franchise that I thought was finished after The Hobbit movies were completed, still has a lot of life left. With the release of new material, The Chidren of Hurin, Beren and Luthien, and now The Fall of Gondolin; the literary works of Tolkien are still something to collect and read. Combined with the newly announced Amazon Studios 5 season series, there will be many more tales told about Middle Earth. It’s an exciting time to be a Middle Earth fan!
