The films take place in the fictional world of Middle-earth sixty years before the beginning of The Lord of the Rings, and follow hobbit Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman), who is convinced by the wizard Gandalf the Grey (Ian McKellen) to accompany thirteen dwarves, led by Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage), on a quest …
The Hobbit is a trilogy, not a single movie and this is also the case with the LotR. The latter was made first but the former takes places earlier chronologically. However, watching the Hobbit trilogy is not “required” to enjoy or understand the LotR trilogy. Hence, the short answer is it doesn’t matter.
In its sequel, The Lord of the Rings, the hobbits Frodo Baggins, Sam Gamgee, Pippin Took, and Merry Brandybuck are primary characters who all play key roles in fighting to save their world (“Middle-earth”) from evil.
Gandalf ‘felt’ that he was bolder than the other hobbits and he decided to have Bilbo join Thorin and his company. … Gandalf never explicitly said why he had chosen poor Bilbo to join him and the dwarves in their expedition. Being wise and proud he did not liked to explain his reasons to anyone.
They died in Gondor and were laid to rest in Rath Dinen, eventually alongside Aragorn when he died at age 210.
Evangeline Lilly, who plays Tauriel in Peter Jackson’s adaptation of The Hobbit, has described the love triangle her character is involved in as “not totally Tolkien” in an interview with Hypable.com.Jul 27, 2014
Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit are connected because they are both set in the same universe, Middle Earth. Although they are set in the same universe The Hobbit takes place 60 years before the Lord of the Rings.
J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of The Rings novels may have been inspired by a true story. … A tablet found in Gloucestershire, at a site known locally as Dwarf’s Hill, seems to state that a curse was placed on the golden ring, much like the fabled One Ring from The Lord of The Rings.
Both Bilbo Baggins and Frodo Baggins were part Fallohide, due to their Took and Brandybuck mothers respectively. Other famous Fallohides included Bandobras Bullroarer Took, who slew an Orc leader, and Peregrin Took.
No Vala created the hobbits since they were merely an evolutionary offshoot of the race of Men, who were created by Eru Ilúvatar without any help from the Valar.
That knowing would alter how Frodo would use the ring – whether he willed it or not. Additionally, Bilbo never sought to DESTROY the ring, thus the Ring had no reason to protect itself from Bilbo and therefore had less of a grip on him.
So while it may seem curious that Bilbo had not taken a wife, as Tolkien built out the Shire society and wrote additional details for his hobbit families he was careful to include other bachelors in the upper ranks of hobbit society.
Gandalf didn’t begin to suspect it was the One Ring until he saw that Bilbo both wasn’t noticeably aging even after years and decades and was obviously obsessed with the Ring as if by magical compulsion. He knew for sure only once the Ring was tested in the hearth at Bagend revealing the writing on it.
Sméagol obtained the Ring by murdering his relative Déagol, who found it in the River Anduin. … Bilbo Baggins found the Ring and took it for his own, and Gollum afterwards pursued it for the rest of his life.
Originally Answered: Is Sauron an elf? No Sauron is not an elf, elves are the firstborn children of iluvatar but Sauron is a maia an angelic being that has existed before the universe was even created. He’s a divine spirit that existed long before the creation of Eä but turned to evil when Morgoth corrupted him.
Gollum followed through with his plan and led Frodo and Sam into Torech Ungol. Just as Frodo warned him, Gollum’s betrayal of his oath ultimately led to his undoing, for Frodo and Sam escaped from her lair and also Cirith Ungol. They came against all odds to the fiery volcano Mount Doom.
Following the War of the Ring, Sam returned to the Shire and his role as gardener, helping to replant the trees which had been destroyed while he was away. He was elected Mayor of the Shire for seven consecutive terms.
The films are subtitled The Fellowship of the Ring (2001), The Two Towers (2002), and The Return of the King (2003).
Dwalin, Dori, Nori, Bifur, Bofur, and Bombur
In The Hobbit, Thorín Oakenshield has twelve companions: Fili, Kili, Dwalin, Balin, Bifur, Bofur, Bombur, Dori, Nori, Ori, Oín, and Glóin. Of these thirteen Dwarves, three die at the end of the novel in the Battle of the Five Armies: Thorín, Fili, and Kili.
In the face of an adventure-filled quest, a story of gallantry and heart, we are arguing about which dwarf is the hottest. It’s just as I thought — every film has got to have a heartthrob. And while Bilbo is brave and Thorin strong, it is Kili (oh Kili!) who acts as The Hobbit’s eye candy.
Smaug was the last named dragon of Middle-earth. He was slain by Bard, a descendant of Girion, Lord of Dale.
