Anyone know any details on the deal?

What, exactly did they buy for the ungodly sum they paid?

And what will they do?

As far as I could find out, it appears to be a continuation of the rights that has led to the various early RP games, the Bass Rankin cartoons, the Bakshi movie, the PJ movies, and the various MMORPG games. I believe there was some sort of a 5 year clause in the contract to do the Hobbit movies, and it coming up to 5 years since th elast Hobbit movie was released, the option was running out. There was quite a deep discussion about the legal speak on another site that made for some dry yet informative reading.
