Product Description

The Trilogy of the Lord of the Rings set includes The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, and The Return of the King. This fantasy series takes place in Middle Earth, where three rings were made for the elves, seven for the dwarves, and nine made for men. However, the dark lord Sauron of Mordor made one ring that could command them all. If the one ring is returned to Saron, the whole of Middle Earth will be at his mercy.

The Fellowship of the Ring sets the pace of the trilogy, beginning in the Shire, where Bilbo Baggins hands over the ring to Frodo. Frodo is handed a quest to destroy the ring by the wizard Gandolf, and on his journey is accompanied by his hobbit friends, the man Aragorn, the dwarf Gimli, and the elf Legolas.

In The Two Towers, characters are divided into different plots. While Merry and Pippin battle orcs and convince the Ents to join their cause, others fight battles with magic and swords, Frodo and Sam continue their journey and discover a treacherous guide in Gollum.

The Return of the King is the dramatic conclusion to the trilogy, in which Frodo and Sam come face to face with the ultimate temptation and barely escape with their lives. In the ultimate battle of good and evil, the one true King finally emerges.
