RUMOR: Disney Bringing 'Lord of the Rings' to Disney Parks?!

Today a new rumor has popped up via WDW News Today that Warner Bros & Disney have made an agreement to make plans to bring J.R.R Tolkien's 'Lord of the Rings' and 'The Hobbit' inspired rides to Disney Parks. This is hot off the heels of Star Wars & marvel rides coming to Disney:

Disney began talking to executives at Warner Bros. about the idea late last year, and it seems now that Disney is looking to finalize or announce the deal in hopes of turning the tide in the Orlando theme park wars.
Rumor has it that Universal Orlando’s parks may show stronger attendance numbers in 2014 with the opening of a second Wizarding World of Harry Potter area, actually defeating Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom. This has Disney frightened.
With already announced AVATAR inspired attractions going to Animal Kingdom in the not-so-distant future, Disney is rumored to be overhauling a planned expansion of Hollywood Studios focusing to focus Star Wars and The Lord of the Rings. It would seem that any Cars Land additions planned for the park are now on hold or may never be built so that Disney could quickly move along with these other projects for the park, opening them between 2015 and 2018.
While we haven’t heard anything about what a Lord of the Rings-inspired area would include, it seems that an announcement from Disney might be imminent.

Since any number of things could go wrong between now and 2018 take with a grain of salt until an announcement comes from Walt Disney.
