Today: Tolkien's Middle-earth stories. It was hard for my kid brain to believe that the fantasy epic was ever an underground thing. Having fallen asleep both in a packed theater during "Fellowship of the Ring" and while my mom read the Tom Bombadil chapters aloud to me before bed, my younger self was convinced that I was the only person in the world who didn't get the whole Middle-earth thing. Of course, Peter Jackson's "Lord of the Rings" movies were among many early '00s big-hitters that helped what was once deemed "nerd culture" completely eclipse everything else in the mainstream. The "Lord of the Rings" and "Hobbit" films came as what you could call the end of a decades-long process: The books percolated through pop-culture, inspiring and influencing close to every depiction of orcs, elves and what-have-you that followed.
No offense to fans of the movies, but the three-part "Hobbit" adaptation sort of proved Christopher right. It's pretty uncontroversial to say that they didn't live up to the highs of Jackson's earlier "Lord of the Rings" adaptations, and they certainly played it pretty loose in terms of sticking to canon Hi Tauriel, nice to meet you for the first time ever.
This well-researched article by Robin Parrish at ScreenRant explains the motives behind the expansion of "The Hobbit" to three movies — "because money," essentially — and why we're not likely to see a feature film adaptation of "The Silmarillion" any time soon — "also because money," basically.
There was a legal battle between the Tolkien estate and Warner Brothers that ended not-too-long-ago, and unless Christopher changes his mind about the movie adaptations he's not likely to work out another movie deal.
Things could change when Christopher passes away or cedes control of the estate to another family member, but consider this also: from the cosmic origin story to the grand swathes of Middle-earth history it contains, "The Silmarillion" is so expansive that it would be far harder to make a movie from than either "The Hobbit" or "Lord of the Rings.
Movies don't have that luxury. That wouldn't necessarily stop a studio from trying If I had to do it, I'd take one or more prominent tales from the book, jettison the rest and hold on to the title for brand recognition but it's another hurdle nonetheless.
On the other hand, video games based on Middle-earth are right up Warner Brothers' alley. Both games are set between "The Hobbit" and "The Lord of the Rings" and, as they're Warner products, they draw heavily on the aesthetics of Peter Jackson's films.
Someone who's well-acquainted with the films should feel right at home… … Except there's one especially egregious choice that's attracted some attention and criticism ahead of the "Shadow of War" release. For the uninitiated, there's this character named Shelob who appears in the "Lord of the Rings" — I'll say she's a big, evil spider and leave it at that.
See if you can figure out who Shelob is in this trailer for "Shadow of War": If you said "the giant spider," you'd only be half-right.
Shelob is also, for some reason, depicted as a humanoid woman in a black cocktail dress. Now, if you have to ask "why," I'll point you in the direction of "Bloodrayne" or any cringe-worthy game like it.
Big-budget games objectify female characters all too often — see "because money" crossed with "unsubtle misogyny" — but in the case of a game set in Middle-earth, you'd think the creators would settle for a scantily-clad Elf or something. Instead, they've gone and sexed-up a giant man-eating spider.
A representative for the game's team has provided their canonical justification for how Shelob can take the form of a humanoid woman Whatever you personally think of decisions to increase the action or sex-appeal of Middle-earth, they do seem pretty set against J. Tolkien's intentions. If you're holding out hope for more big adaptations 1 or additions to Middle-earth lore, you're essentially waiting for the day that the interests of large media corporations and the Tolkien estate align — "because money again," in other words.
The Future So, barring any well-hidden manuscripts or seismic changes in the relationship between the Tolkien estate and enterprising film studios, the lore of Middle-earth is somewhat settled. Even if the flow of stories set in Middle-earth comes to a complete halt, "The Hobbit" and "The Lord of the Rings" will continue to influence fantasy and pop-culture for decades to come.
Future generations will undoubtedly find new correspondences between Tolkien's works and the world they live in. Frodo lived, lives now and will outlive us.
It's technically unfinished, it both inspired and was eclipsed by the Peter Jackson films and few can agree on its overall quality. Nonetheless, I've tried to do it some small justice by selecting its incredible poster as the header art for this article, thereby sparing you a large picture of Elijah Wood or Martin Freeman. The story starts in the Shire, where the hobbit Frodo Baggins acquires the Ring from Bilbo Baggins, his cousin and watchman.
Neither one of the hobbits knows about the Ring's inclination, however Gandalf the Dim, a wizard and an old companion of Bilbo, suspects it to be Sauron's Ring. After Gandalf affirms his doubts, he reveals to Frodo the historical backdrop of the Ring and insight him to remove the Ring from the Shire.
Frodo leaves the Shire, in the organization of his nursery worker and companion, Samwise "Sam" Gamgee, and two cousins, Meriadoc Brandybuck, called Cheerful, and Peregrin Took, called Pippin. After a fizzled endeavor to cross the Dim Mountains through the Redhorn Go over the flank of Caradhras, the Organization are compelled to attempt an unsafe way through the Mines of Moria.
They are assaulted by the Watcher in the Water before the entryways of Moria. Sauron then launched a war during which he captured sixteen and distributed them to lords and kings of Dwarves and Men; these Rings were known as the Seven and the Nine respectively.
The Dwarf-lords proved too tough to enslave although their natural desire for wealth, especially gold, increased; this brought more conflict between them and other races. The Three Sauron failed to capture, and remained in the possession of the Elves who forged these independently.
He arrived in Middle-earth with such overwhelming force that Sauron's armies flee at the sight of them. He did this by corrupting the King's mind, telling him that the immortality of the Elves was his to take if he set foot upon the lands of Aman , the Blessed Realm, where Valinor , the realm of the Valar, was located.
However, upon reaching Aman, he and his army were buried by a landslide, and there they would remain until the Final Battle in Tolkien's eschatology. After seven years of siege, Sauron himself was ultimately forced to engage in single combat with the leaders. Gil-galad and Elendil perished as they combat Sauron, and Elendil's sword, Narsil , broke beneath him.
However, Sauron's body was also overcome and slain,  and Isildur cut the One Ring from Sauron's hand with the hilt-shard of Narsil, and at this Sauron's spirit flees and does not reappear in his terrible form for many centuries.
Isildur was advised to destroy the One Ring by the only way it could be — by casting it into the volcanic Mount Doom where it was forged — but he refused, attracted to its beauty and kept it as compensation for the deaths of his father and brother weregild. So began the Third Age of Middle-earth.
Two years later, while journeying to Rivendell , Isildur and his soldiers were ambushed by a band of Orcs at what was eventually called the Disaster of the Gladden Fields. While the latter were almost all killed, Isildur escaped by putting on the Ring — which made mortal wearers invisible. However, the Ring slipped from his finger while he was swimming in the great River Anduin ; he was killed by Orc-arrows and the Ring was lost for two millennia.
He fled to the Misty Mountains where he slowly withered and became a disgusting, slimy creature called Gollum. In The Hobbit , set 60 years before the events in The Lord of the Rings, Tolkien relates the story of the seemingly accidental finding of the Ring by another hobbit, Bilbo Baggins , who takes it to his home, Bag End.
Story-externally, the tale related in The Hobbit was written before The Lord of the Rings, and it was only later that the author developed Bilbo's magic ring into the "One Ring. The story begins in the first volume, The Fellowship of the Ring , when Frodo Baggins , Bilbo's adoptive heir, came into possession of Bilbo's magic ring. Bilbo's old friend, Gandalf the Grey , who got Bilbo involved in the adventures in The Hobbit that led to the discovery of the Ring, discovered that it was in fact the One Ring , the instrument of Sauron's power and the object for which the Dark Lord has been searching for most of the Third Age, and which corrupted others with desire for it and the power it held.
Sauron sent the sinister Ringwraiths, in the guise of riders in black, to the Shire , Frodo's native land, in search of the Ring.
While Fatty acted as decoy for the Ringwraiths, Frodo and the others set off to take the Ring to the Elven haven of Rivendell. They were aided by the enigmatic Tom Bombadil , who saved them from Old Man Willow and took them in for a few days of feasting, rest, and counsel.
Aragorn led the hobbits to Rivendell on Gandalf's request. However, Frodo was gravely wounded by the leader of the Ringwraiths, though he managed to recover under the care of the Half-elven lord Elrond.
