The prequel to The Lord of the Ringsâ€”The Hobbitâ€”is now a major motion picture directed by Peter Jackson Â THE GREATEST FANTASY EPIC OF OUR TIME Â The dark, fearsome Ringwraiths are searching for a Hobbit. Frodo Baggins knows that they are seeking him and the Ring he bearsâ€”the Ring of Power that will enable evil Sauron to destroy all that is good in Middle-earth. Now it is up to Frodo and his faithful servant, Sam, with a small band of companions, to carry the Ring to the one place it can be destroyed: Mount Doom, in the very center of Sauronâ€™s realm. Â Thus begins J.R.R. Tolkienâ€™s classic The Lord of the Rings, which continues in The Two Towers and The Return of the King.
