Let me clear up a little misconception that’s been going around.  
Peter Jackson (and his screenwriters, Phillipa Boyens and Fran Walsh) did not invent much of anything.  Thorin’s story comes from Return of the King, Appendix A.  The story of the Necromancer comes from the last chapter of The Silmarillion.  Radagast also appears in The Silmarillion.  Stories of Gondolin appear throughout the Silmarillion, as well as in the Lost Tales and various others of Tolkien’s extensive collected writing.
If you’d like to know more about even the tiniest detail in Tolkien’s world, it’s all there for the reading.

THANK YOU FOR THIS!! This has been such a pet peeve of mine lately. Even though Elrond and Gandalf make a brief reference to Gondolin, it’s still there. And yes, it’s almost everything is featured on the ROTK Appendices, The Unfinished Tales (more specifically at “The Quest of Erebor” chapter) and in some extent on the Silmarillion (“Of the Rings of Power and the Third Age” part). So all of you complaining about PJ ‘making up stuff’ get your facts right for once. 

YES. THANK YOU.


I think the problem more people have is calling all of those books the hobbit when it is in movie form.

    I can’t believe how many times I’ve had to clear up the OP’s misconception. However I think it’s probably not quite so...

    What I want to know is in which part of Tolkien’s unfinished writing do we find the epic love between Tauriel and Kili?
