Can you count the similarities between The Hobbit, the book by J.R.R. Tolkien and The Hobbit, the movie based on the book? I just saw it with my brother, who’s visiting for Christmas and my family. Here’s a few similarities I found:
- A Hobbit named Bilbo
- A Wizard named Gandalf
- A lot of dwarves who sing around the fireplace
- A dragon named Smaug who lived in the Lonely Mountain.
- A magic ring that belonged to a thing named Gollum that lived in the watery heart of a mountain.
There were a handful of other commonalities, too. The plot wasn’t one of them.
Just the same I loved the movie – we all loved the movie- and can’t wait to see part II.
Are there any other similarities between The Hobbit, the book and The Hobbit, the movie? I’m sure there are, but not too many. See if you can come up with some of your own.
