[edit] Rumours

In 2010, Wesley Yin-Poole, interviewing LEGO Harry Potter producer Loz Doyle, wrote that "[Doyle] refused to deny that a LEGO Lord of the Rings or a LEGO The Hobbit game is in development" but admitted a LEGO game based on the New Line Cinema films and Tolkien books "'would definitely work'".[8]

A Wikia user claimed to have found a bit of evidence for a Lego The Lord of the Rings video game, when discovering key words ("LOTR Ring") within the program files of Lego Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game. However, other Wikia users remarked that those key words might have another meaning within the files.[9]

[edit] Notes

  • Tolkien fans, despite the lack of official products, have nevertheless been creative on modifying and assembling Lego bricks to resemble characters, and even cities, from Tolkien's legendarium.
