Who Is The Necromancer In The Hobbit?


What are the different names Sauron is referred to in The Fellowship of the RIng?

In the first book, he is called, I believe, "Necromancer", and other things. Would you happen to be able to help me?

He was called the Necromancer in the Hobbit. Sauron has many names. I think the orcs referred to the Great Eye. The Elves name for him was Gorthaur the Cruel. In the Second Age he was Annatar or Aulendil, and I believe his name prior to that was Mairon. Mostly, in LOTR, he is called the Dark Lord.

IN THE HOBBiT, WHY DOES GANDALF LEAVE WHEN HE DOES?

WHY WAS IT NECESSARY FOR GANDALF TO LEAVE IN THE HOBBIT? WHAT WAS THE EFFECT ON BILBO AND THE DWARVES? HOW DID BILBO HELP THE DWARVES? DO YOU THINK BILBO AND THE DWARVES WILL GROW UP?

It was Bilbos adventure not gandalfs and gandalf had other bisuness like take care of the necromancer. The dwarves and Bilbo needed him they thought at least he had already saved there lives a couple times. Bilbo helped the dwarves by becoming the leader and he also saved the dwarves. Yes the dwarves and Bilbo will grow up

Why is the Hobbit movie being produced in two parts?

I heard today that a movie is going to be made of the Hobbit, but it will be split into two parts the Hobbit. The second movie will be about the story in between The Hobbit and LOTR. But then i heard that the second movie will be just carrying on of The Hobbit story. Im really confused.. does anyone know what's going on?

It's being done in two parts so hopefully there won't be much left out and so Peter Jackson and company can expand into areas to further explain what's going on.

Here's a good place to keep up with the progress. There's lots of info there. Don't forget to watch the first trailer on Youtube.

What was the original name of The Hobbit?

so i'm reading the hobbit and I've always known it as the hobbit or there and back again, but does anyone know what JRR Tolkien called it when he first wrote it. Was it there and back again or just the the hobbit or both of what?

Prof. Tolkien's conception of the story was literally an offhand and random scribbling of the sentence,
"In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit,"
on the back of one of his student's graded papers. Bilbo's adventures were told as bedtime stories for his children for decades, and at their prompting he wrote it for fun, sending in a copy with little expectation of actually getting it published. As such, "The Hobbit, or There and Back Again" is the only title we know it to have ever had (aside from the in-universe title Bilbo gave it), as the Professor didn't rehash the title after the first edition.

What are the difference between The Lord of the Rings movies and the Hobbit movie?

I haven't got into The Lord of the Rings movies, books or anything yet, because I like sci fi more than middle earth really, but I'm a little confused. I thought the Lord of the Rings movies was the same thing as the Hobbit. Is the new Hobbit movie going to be a re-make or more of an add-on to those movies. I'm just curious.

The Hobbit was written before the LOTR trilogy. The Hobbit is basically the prequel to the LOTR trilogy. It explains how Bilbo gained possession of The One Ring.

They involve many of the same characters, in The Hobbit, Bilbo is a lot younger than he is in LOTR. Gandalf looks about the same lol gotta love the wizards they live for a long time.


In short, The Hobbit is the prequel. EXCELLENT book, I recommend it, it's an easy read.
