      The Saul Zaentz company owns the rights to everything based on the books.  See the text below--I've added asterisks around the relevant text.

      Next question:  Given that there doesn't appear to be anything in the Lego sets that is derived from the movie rather than the book, why should New Line/Saul Zaentz Company/Middle-earth Enterprises be the ones who have contracted with the manufacturers rather than the Tolkien Estate?
