The Lord Of The Rings 2001 info:-
The Lord Of The Rings 2001 first volume (1954) in the trilogy that forms the famed fantasy novel The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien, whose academic grounding in Anglo-Saxon, Celtic, and Norse mythology helped shape his fictional world. The three-part work, set in the land of Middle-earth, forms a sequel to Tolkien’s The Hobbit (1937) and constitutes one of the most successful novels in publishing history.
The epic tale continued in The Two Towers (1954) and The Return of the King (1955). The story begins in the Shire—a part of Middle-earth where the small, good-natured, quietly domestic hobbits live—like the eccentric hobbit Bilbo Baggins is celebrating his “eleventy-first” (111th) birthday.
During the party Bilbo announces his departure and disappears with the use of the magical ring that makes its wearer invisible; his discovery of the ring is chronicled in The Hobbit. Before leaving the Shire, however, he returns home. Although he intends to give all his possessions to his young relative and heir, Frodo, at the last minute he balks at leaving behind the ring. However, he is persuaded to do so by the wizard Gandalf, who later learns that Frodo’s ring is the One Ring, the most powerful of the 20 Rings of Power.
The Lord Of The Rings 2001 Plot:-
In the Second Age of Middle-earth, the lords of Elves, Dwarves, and Men are given Rings of Power. Unbeknownst to them, the Dark Lord Sauron forges the One Ring in Mount Doom, infusing into it a great part of his power to dominate, through it and at a distance, the other Rings, so he might conquer Middle-earth.
A final alliance of men and elves battles Sauron’s forces in Mordor, where Prince Isildur of Gondor severs Sauron’s finger, and the Ring with it, thereby destroying his physical form. With Sauron’s first defeat, the Third Age of Middle-earth begins. Unfortunately, the Ring’s influence corrupts Isildur, and, rather than destroy the Ring, Isildur takes it for himself. Isildur is later killed by Orcs, and the Ring is lost for 2,500 years until it is found by Gollum, who owns it for five centuries.
The Ring is then found by a hobbit named Bilbo Baggins, who turns invisible when he puts it on but is unaware of its history. Sixty years later, Bilbo celebrates his 111th birthday in the Shire, reuniting with his old friend, Gandalf the Grey. Bilbo reveals that he intends to leave the Shire for one last adventure, and he leaves his inheritance, including the Ring, to his nephew, Frodo. Although Bilbo has begun to become corrupted by the Ring and tries to keep it for himself, Gandalf intervenes.
Gandalf, suspicious of the Ring, tells Frodo to keep it secret and to keep it safe. Gandalf then investigates the Ring, discovers its true nature, and returns to warn Frodo. Gandalf also learns that Gollum was tortured by Orcs and that Gollum uttered two words during his torture: “Shire” and “Baggins.” Gandalf instructs Frodo to leave the Shire, accompanied by his friend Samwise Gamgee.

The Lord Of The Rings 2001 Casting:-
Before filming began on 11 October 1999, the principal actors trained for six weeks in sword fighting (with Bob Anderson), riding and boating. Jackson hoped such activities would allow the cast to bond so chemistry would be evident on screen as well as getting them used to life in Wellington.
They were also trained to pronounce Tolkien’s verses properly. After the shoot, the nine cast members playing the Fellowship got a tattoo of the English word “nine” written in Tengwar, with the exception of John Rhys-Davies, whose stunt double got the tattoo instead. The film is noted for having an ensemble cast, and some of the cast and their respective characters include Elijah Wood as Frodo Baggins: a young hobbit who inherits the One Ring from his uncle Bilbo.
Wood was the first actor to be cast on 7 July 1999. Wood was a fan of the book, and he sent in an audition dressed as Frodo, reading lines from the novel. Wood was selected from 150 actors who auditioned, including Jake Gyllenhaal. Ian McKellen as Gandalf: an Istari wizard and mentor to Frodo. Sean Connery was approached for the role but did not understand the plot, while Patrick Stewart turned it down as he disliked the script.
Before being cast, McKellen had to sort his schedule with 20th Century Fox as there was a two-month overlap with X-Men, in which he portrayed Magneto. He enjoyed playing Gandalf the Grey more than his transformed state in the next two films and based his accent on Tolkien. Unlike his on-screen character, McKellen did not spend much time with the actors playing the hobbits; instead, he worked with their scale doubles.
The Lord Of The Rings 2001 Production:
Peter Jackson began working with Christian Rivers to storyboard the series in August 1997, as well as getting Richard Taylor and Weta Workshop to begin creating his interpretation of Middle-earth. Jackson told them to make Middle-earth as plausible and believable as possible, to think of Middle-earth in a historical manner.
In November, Alan Lee and John Howe became the film trilogy’s primary conceptual designers, having had previous experience as illustrators for the book and various other tie-ins. Lee worked for the Art Department creating places such as Rivendell, Isengard, Moria, and Lothlórien, giving Art Nouveau and geometry influences to the Elves and Dwarves respectively. Though Howe contributed with Bag End and the Argonath, he focused on working on armor having studied it all his life.
