Of all the magical villages and places we saw in the earlier films and that we’re sure to see again in “The Hobbit”, we really like ‘The Shire’ and the Elven land of ‘Rivendell’. In fact, we think those communities and homes are so great that we even did some research and wrote about each.
Part of the magic of the Lord of the Rings films can be credited to how magical and beautiful the Director made “Middle-Earth” look. Besides the lush green fields and mountains, some of the homes and villages were very, very awesome. So to commemorate the soon to start “The Hobbit” trilogy, we’ll dedicate our own series of blog posts looking at some of the homes you’ll see featured in the movies. To start, let’s head over to a tight-knit community where their homes literally have deep roots.
