Surprise Connections Between 'The Hobbit' & 'Lord Of The Rings'

Posted: Updated:

That there are references to Peter Jackson's "Lord of the Rings" franchise embedded within the director's new "Hobbit" series of films is far from surprising. Both, after all, are based on the work of J.R.R. Tolkien and share many characters. What is unexpected, however, is the depth to which the allusions between "The Hobbit" and "The Lord of the Rings" go. (Or maybe not, if you're a superfan.) Below, via Reddit, a few of the more sneaky "Lord of the Rings" Easter eggs buried in "The Hobbit." Look for "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" in theaters on Dec. 13.
