PG-13 | | Adventure, Drama, Fantasy
A meek Hobbit from the Shire and eight companions set out on a journey to destroy the powerful One Ring and save Middle Earth from the Dark Lord Sauron.
The world is changed. I feel it in the water. I feel it in the earth. I smell it in the air. Much that once was is lost, for none now live who remember it. It began with the forging of the Great Rings. Three were given to the Elves, immortal, wisest...
Gandalf loses his staff when he is imprisoned by Saruman, but later he has it again. Or so it seems. Actually, it's a visibly different staff. He also seems to lose his hat, but he leaves it on his horse, whose fate is never established. Bill the pony remembers his way back to Bree in the book after he is released by Sam at the entrance to the mines of Moria. In the book, Gandalf stops at Bree just before being imprisoned and shortly after escaping. It doesn't seem implausible that his horse could have remembered its way back to Bree or maybe even Rivendell. Gandalf could have retrieved his hat when he made his way there himself.
After the end credits, the DVD and Blu Ray editions of the extended cut feature a list of "Lord of the Rings fan-club members" who contributed financially to the project in exchange for a credit. This additional credit sequence lasts 20 minutes.
