You read it right, 100 years after it was written, J.R.R. Tolkien‘s story about Beren and Lúthien will be published this year.
Harper Collins will release the book sometime in 2017, and will tackle the story about Beren, a mortal man and Lúthien, an elfen maiden. The couple appeared in The Silmarillion, and was mentioned by Aragorn, whose relationship with Arwen in The Lord of the Rings is very similar to that of Beren and Lúthien.
The story, first released in a 12-volume series called The History of Middle-Earth, will now be available as a standalone book that includes illustrations by Alan Lee and passages from several iterations of Tolkien’s work.
Hope for upcoming movies for this. I just hope they don’t milk it and drag the story too long like they did with The Hobbit.
