Se siete tra coloro che sono corsi al cinema per non perdersi la nuova trilogia firmata Peter Jackson che riguarda i fatti della "Terra di Mezzo" allora non potrà che farvi felici questa notizia ancora non confermata.

Gli Universal Studios potrebbero, infatti, essere in trattativa per l'acquisizione dei diritti de "Lo Hobbit" e de "Il Signore degli Anelli". Il filone Fantasy infatti sarebbe perfettamente coerente con il gusto dei numerosi fans che già adorano la saga del maghetto Harry Potter, per il quale è stata costruita da pochi anni un'area dedicata all'interno di Islands of Adventure ad Orlando (Florida).

Alcuni affiatati fan del parco e delle avventure Tolkeniane azzardano l'ipotesi di una "Terra di Mezzo" collocata al posto dell'odierna Toon Lagoon.

Non ci resta che seguire la vicenda con interesse, si prospetta un vero e proprio "Viaggio Inaspettato" tra conferme e smentite.

Sembra che ci sia stata una battuta d'arresto su questo progetto (articolo di Hermy), a causa di problemi legali tra la famiglia Tolkien e la WB .

Qui l'artivolo Preso da scream scape:
???? - Tolkien’s Middle-Earth - Rumor - (2/4/13) Before anyone starts to try and plan a trip to Orlando to see the creation of a Tolkien’s Middle-Earth land at Universal, it seems there is a major road-block to be dealt with first that will likely keep any and all Middle-Earth theme park plans in limbo for the time being. To tell the story, a little history lesson is also required, as the ownership issues are a little complicated.
Back in 1968 J.R.R. Tolkien sold the basic rights (stage, film and merchandising) to United Artists, who later resold them to the Saul Zaentz Company in 1976, who licensed them out as Tolkien Enterprises, later renamed as Middle-Earth Enterprises in 2010. They have the rights to the both sagas, the characters, places, objects and events that transpired within these works.
Over the last few years as Tolkien’s works were translated to the big screen in the Lord of the Rings trilogy, and now followed by the Hobbit trilogy, the Tolkien family has made it clear that they were not fans of these new works, as well as the series of video games that have also followed as gaming rights have moved from Vivendi to E.A. and now at Warner Brothers. In November the Tolkien family actually filed a lawsuit against Warner Brothers over their use of the property, as they felt they are stretching things too far.
The family is asking the court to establish and better define the contractual limits WB has available to them for the Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. The family claims the original marketing / merchandising agreement from the 60’s was only to include “tangible property”, and today WB has extended those rights into realms that never existed or were conceived possible back in the ‘60s such as themed slot machines, console video games and now online only MMO games like WB’s Lord of the Rings Online. I’m sure the talk of a possible theme park project are also right there in the heart of it all as well, just as the trademarking filing this past week by Saul Zaentz for the amusement park rights to the term “Middle-Earth” can be seen as a preemptive strike attempt to claim the rights.
In the end, unless Universal Studios can get the blessing of both WB, Middle-Earth Enterprises and the Tolkien family estate, we are unlikely to see the realm of Middle-Earth in theme park form until the lawsuit is settled and there is a clear owner who can sign off on the IP rights for such a project. Universal isn’t going to invest a dime into actual construction until this is settled.
