      MCKELLEN TALKS 'RINGS'

      Once again, Sir Ian McKellen has updated the Lord of the Rings area of his
      official website's E-Posting section. As usual, McKellen quickly answers a
      number of questions about the production though he does touch on some
      points
      in particular on how the story will be presented.

      In answer to a question about how those in the audience who had not read
      the
      Tolkien books might keep up with the story, McKellen reveals, "All
      essential
      background will be filled in within the dialogue, although each film will
      have a prologue of previous events."

      As far as those characters who aren't speaking English are concerned,
      McKellen adds, "Those lines spoken in Elvish will be translated by some
      form
      of subtitling."
