The ultimate companion to the Hollywood blockbuster. National Geographic embarks on an extraordinary journey through myth, legend, language, and history to explore how the imaginary world of Middle-earth reflects our own. Who was J.R.R. Tolkien, and how did he create the amazing world of Middle-earth? How does the struggle between good and evil in this epic story parallel challenges in our world? Why are the places, heroes, and villains of Middle-earth eerily familiar? Who are the real-life Frodos of today?

Featuring exclusive footage from The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, insightful interviews with the cast and filmmakers, and provocative perspectives of explorers, anthropologists, and archaeologists. Only National Geographic can present such a unique look into the blockbuster film and the real-life story behind it.
