Peter Jackson

Covering an expansive range of locations and characters, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy is a true epic in every sense of the word. From the illusive Elves and endearing Hobbits to the dark and twisted worlds of Orcs and mankind the timeless tale presents a fleshed-out and fascinating universe to explore.

Director Peter Jackson also managed to assemble a truly awe-inspiring cast for this series, with icons such as Elijah Wood, Ian McKellen, Viggo Mortensen, Sean Astin, Orlando Bloom, Liv Tyler, Sean Bean, Andy Serkis, Cate Blanchett, Christopher Lee, Hugo Weaving and Karl Urban to name just a few.

What’s more, all three films have received widespread critical acclaim, receiving a staggering 475 awards out of 800 nominations, making it the most awarded film series in cinematic history.

The Fellowship of the Ring

Unlikely friends gather as a menacing threat begins to form in Mordor. Will Frodo make it to Mount Doom in time to destroy the mysterious One Ring before it destroys him?

The Two Towers

New allies and foes converge as the forces of Isengard and Rohan collide. All the while a menacing force of evil watches silently and Sam and Frodo edge closer to their dark destination.

The Return of the King

The Fellowship prepare for the final battle against the evil forces of Mordor. While Frodo and Sam continue their adventure to Mount Doom to destroy the One Ring, they follow the suspicious Gollum, unaware of where the path he is leading them on may end…

‘Fantasy is escapist, and that is its glory. If a soldier is imprisoned by the enemy, don’t we consider it his duty to escape? If we value the freedom of mind and soul, if we’re partisans of liberty, then it’s our plain duty to escape and to take as many people with us as we can.’ – J. R. R. Tolkien
