I don't think I've mentioned this, but yay, Martin Freeman.
Oh no, laughter.Even if the invisibility isn't done in a way that makes it more comic-relief than anything, I'm sure the kids will laugh, and the parents will follow suite.

In LotR, another Glorfindel appeared, sent out by Elrond to the route the Nazgul were most likely to be because he was so high-tier he could solo them. Which he did in another instance. It later turned out the names were the same, Tolkien would have changed it if he noticed sooner but afterwards was reluctant to do so. Since elven names are supposed to be unique, the former and the latter are the same, and Tolkien later explained the Valar sent him back to Middle-Earth as a sort of predecessor to the Istari/Wizards.
It's pretty much "whoops, I wrote two badasses with the same name, better make them the same with an Elf-Jesus backstory."

Huh, I don't get that part. How can elven names be unique, there must be hundreds of thousands of them (counting all the Quendi), or even millions.

Because Tolkien said so, and because he only had to name maybe a hundred of them.

Now imagine that same ambience when Bilbo uses it in the Hobbit.
Doesn't quite match up does it.
