Musical send up of Tolkien Purists
19 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

A lighthearted look at the "additions" Peter Jackson developed for The Hobbit and the responses they generated among the Tolkien Purists. While they might be initially hostile, they are easily led down the garden path by PJ's talent.

The clip owes as much to English music hall as to Middle Earth. Perhaps the next project for the Esgaroth 3 would be a full scale performance of some of the dwarfs' songs from the film (and the book!) itself.

One of the joys of the video is that all of the people who appear in it are extras in The Hobbit, so it reflects the family spirit that developed on set (the real one). This is another indirect tribute to Jackson's approach and love for his matauriel, err, material.
