Is Peter Playing with Us?

The new trailer for The Hobbit part 2: The Desolation of Smaug hit the internet Tuesday, and fans have been busy talking about it. Here are a few off-the-cuff reactions I’ve had. Bottom line: I think PJ and company are at their best when they quote Tolkien verbatim. Why they chose to change some of his best dialog is beyond me.

In the world of The Dragon Forest, dragons are not born (more precisely “hatched”) bad. It is how they are raised, how they are trained, that makes the difference. Some dragons in the book are abused and used for fighting games in the arena. But other dragons are raised and trained by the elves. These dragons learn faithfulness and loyalty instead of fear and anger.

J. R. R. Tolkien’s Sanctifying Myth: Understanding Middle-earth
Experiencing Truth through Myth

…many of our contemporaries—a bizarre combination of those who have embraced secular modernity as well as those who abhor it, the Christian fundamentalists—have rejected the importance of myth. For the modernist… myth is a lie. … For religious fundamentalists myths… constitute dangerous rivals to Christian truth and may lead the unwary astray… Modernity has blinded us to the mystery surrounding us. His mythologizing of the world, Tolkien believed, increased our ability to see the beauty and sacramentality of creation.
