TheOneRing.net, with major sponsor The Lord of the Rings: War in the
North on board, is heading to DragonCon in Atlanta, Georgia, via the
roadways of America and broadcasting the event LIVE on TORn. Along the
way we are taking our little Gandalf to get lots of photos with him
and to meet TORn readers in a few cities along the way before we hand
him off in Atlanta and send him to Europe!. (More about Gandalf soon
as we unveil the whole project with a new website dedicated just to
getting the statue in the hands of fans for photos and to “handoff the
Gandalf.” Our trip is corporately sponsored by The Lord of the Rings:
War in the North, releasing November 1st in North America. Other
sponsor’s include everybody’s favorite LOTR jeweler Badali Jewelry and
“The Website for People Who Love Britain,” Anglotopia.
Check our schedule below carefully and if we are coming to your area

Dominion Post: Hobbiton Visitors Sworn to Secrecy
>From the Dominion Post: The skeleton that remained of the set has been
a very popular tourist attraction. We also know that it has since been
rebuilt for The Hobbit – and that this time it won’t be removed once
filming is completed. It’s been designed to last 50 years. But what

before the cameras roll.

Evangeline Lilly, taking on the role of an invented female Elf
character in The Hobbit, has been spotted in Wellington, New Zealand
