298: Fantasy Casting for the Silmarillion Film Project

December 26th, 2015

Episode 298 of 366 episodes

This bonus SilmFilm discussion occurred as part of the Signum University Annual Fund Campaign Halloween Extravaganza in the fall of 2015. Dr. Corey Olsen and Trish Lambert—two-thirds of the SilmFilm podcast co-host team—led discussion about some sure-to-be-controversial fantasy casting discussions for the (purely theoretical) Silmarillion Film Project. There is plenty of fun, speculation and debate to go around. The Simarillion Film Project, Mythgard Academy, and other free events and series that we offer free to the public are funded by tax-deductible donations.
