I have recently started the entire adventure and am now almost finished with The Two Towers. I'm hoping you make the prequel to The Lord of the Rings (the Hobbit) so it makes more sense of how it all started.

Also, is there some sort of chart that shows the relative sizes of the characters?

According to the books, Orcs are slightly smaller than humans, dwarfs shorter and stockier than the orcs, elves slightly shorter and leaner than humans, Trolls 8-12 fee tall and hobbits, about 2 feet tall.

I understand the need to have the hobbits be a little bigger because you can't find 2 foot actors that easily. Just thought they may compensate with special effects.
