Disney+ has announced the full list of everything coming to the United Kingdom and Ireland in July including premieres of new Disney+ Original Series, additional episodes of fan-favorite series, and new library title additions. One of the library titles coming to Star on Disney+ is “Tolkein” (2019) which arrives on Friday, July 23rd.
“Tolkein” explores the formative years of the renowned author’s life as he finds friendship, courage and inspiration among a fellow group of writers and artists at school. Their brotherhood strengthens as they grow up and weather love and loss together, including Tolkien’s tumultuous courtship of his beloved Edith Bratt, until the outbreak of the First World War which threatens to tear their fellowship apart. All of these experiences would later inspire Tolkien to write his famous Middle-earth novels.
