From memory the date has only been moved once. It was originally announced for a release on May 4th iirc but was then put back to June 1st. It was late May-Early June while Tolkien was recuperating that Edith danced for him in the wood (Hammond. Scull Chronology pp.100-01) and also he was passed fit on the 1st June 1917 so it being released around 29th May - 1st June 2017 is I would think a more fitting date than Star Wars day

Thanks for the info Trotter.

I hope I can get back home for a week during the exhibition. Decent time so it is hopeful

I think the main reason I was offended by the 3rd movie was the tone in the language. It felt so off, but ultimately you are correct. These are after all just fiction.

There is also some material which as far as I am aware is only published in those works. The draft material is certainly exclusive to THotH and I think Goblin Feet while published elsewhere in a Mallorn issue and a handful of early publications from 1915 into the early 30s is easiest obtainable in The Annotated Hobbit. Tolkien was not kind to it but I think it is a charming little thing and is from the time of You and Me / and the Cottage of Lost Play which I find very apt.

It is utterly disgraceful, and even worse is the defense of it by some supposed Tolkien scholars and fans. In the making of material for the Hobbit (I enjoy making of material and in the case of The Hobbit, far more than the actual feature) Philippa Boyens described the reasoning for such changes as 'staying true to Tolkien's larger vision of this story by using his notes'. I missed Tauriel and the love triangle of elf/dwarf/elf in his notes!
