Reporter query: Getting your Hobbit on?

Film-The Hobbit
James Fisher, The Associated Press

This publicity film image released by Warner Bros., shows Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins in a scene from the fantasy adventure "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey." 

Less than two months from now, "The Hobbit: Part 1" will open in theaters everywhere.

If you are one of the legion of J.R.R. Tolkien fans awaiting the release and planning on celebrating in some way, we'd like to know. Dressing up? Learning the Elfin language? Forging you own sword?

Contact staff writer Dan Hartill at and let us know!
