Like many people, Jessy Stouffer and her family have a tradition of watching “The Hobbit” and “The Lord of the Rings” movies around the holidays, but the final installment doesn’t come out until mid-December and the 21-year-old Northern Illinois University student said she’s worried her father won’t live to see it.
The activists were not asking people to boycott The Hobbit. They said they just want the film industry to stop using animals.
For those excited about the release of “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,” there is no need to travel to Middle-Earth to celebrate the movie’s premiere in style. While you might not immediately associate Chicago with the Shire, the Windy City still offers plenty of ways to prepare for the movie’s opening on December 14.
