LEGENDARIUM’S RECAP OF EVENT REPORTING
This is a busy and exciting time for the Network as the release of Peter Jackson’s second installment of the Hobbit franchise nears. As you may remember, Legendarium was there at the premier of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey in New York City where we were able to interview Richard Armitage.
The Middle-Earth Network has had a busy year in reporting around the world. Middle-Earth Network Co-Founder, John DiBartolo, received an exclusive invite to the Grand Opening of the Greisinger Museum in Switzerland where he wrote a four part series on the historic opening.
Legendarium was there at RingCon, represented by famed Tolkien artist Jay Johnstone, award winning film maker Kate Madison– creator of the Lord of the Rings themed movie “Born of Hope” and actor Christopher Dane.
Most recently Legendarium’s John DiBartolo and Steve Fitch attended the Hobbit Worldwide Fan Events in New York City and Toronto and were able to be part of the exclusive behind the scenes access and report to fans what they missed.
We also travelled “down under” to the Supernova Adelaide convention in Australia as covered by Legendarium reporter and author, Kylie Leane.
