It seems like every day, there are new novelizations of the famous Harry Potter films, and for every one of them, there’s a new one about the fictional hobbits.
This is because, as the story goes, a magical wizard named Frodo Baggins created the world around him, and then, when he fell into a deep sleep, the hobbits awoke and were able to create a new world.
Now, a new version of this story is being told by the author of this new book: Hilary Mantel.
In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Mantel discussed her work on the film, her favorite scenes, and whether or not she has any thoughts on the book she’s writing about it.
Mantel first began writing about the Hobbit when she was 14.
“I started writing to be a writer and then my parents started telling me to do the Hobbit,” she told THR.
“It was this big story.
My first drafts were really weird, and I was like, ‘Oh, this isn’t going to work.'”
So she began working on a novel.
But when she began writing the book, she didn’t realize how well it would sell.
It wasn’t until the book came out in the summer of 2012 that she realized that it was a huge success.
The film made over $1.5 billion worldwide, and the books sales have since surpassed $1 billion.
Mankiw and Mantel’s next book, The Adventures of Tom Bombadil: The Book of Lost Adventures, will follow in the footsteps of the previous book.
“I just don’t know how to tell a story about Tom Bombadder,” Mantel said, referring to the famous villain from the Lord of the Rings films.
“And I’m not a huge fan of his, so I just wanted to do a novel that was sort of Tom-or-Cadogan.”
Mantels first idea for a new book came after she watched the Hobbit.
“There’s a scene in the novel where Frodo, Gandalf and Bilbo are having a picnic on the mountain, and they’re sitting there together, and Frodo is talking to the Hobbit and talking about how they’re going to fight each other,” she said.
“So that’s the first thought that came to me, because I thought it would be really cool to write a book about Tom-Caden, and so that was the first thing I came up with.”
The book will have two sections.
One will focus on the Hobbits, and one will focus more on Gandalf.
There will be a bit of the story of Bilbo and Frodon from the books, but Mantel says she will be using the entire book as a “fictionalized” version of the book.
She said that she hopes the Hobbes will become “friends” with the hobbit, and that they will learn from the hobbles and learn to be good.
Manny Ganley, who also co-wrote the novel, said he believes the novel will appeal to children.
“There’s something about a child seeing the hobgoblins and the story and seeing how they go about their business and how they have to fight, and it’s so much fun to write,” he said.
“If I can be a little bit more inclusive of what’s going on, that’s something I’d like to see happen.
I think that’s really what’s really going to resonate with children.”
Mandalay is also looking to add new characters to the book in the near future.
“We’re really excited about bringing a bunch of new characters into the story,” she added.
“One of the things we’re doing is bringing in characters who aren’t actually in the books anymore, so we’re just going to keep updating the books.”
