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...
When Gandalf and Frodo are first discussing the history of the ring in Bag End, Frodo is pouring the drink. In the next shot, he's already sitting down with a drink in his hand.
There are no opening credits after the title has been shown.
In the extended DVD, the discussion Gandalf and Frodo have in Moria about Gollum has several more lines. In particular, Gandalf tells Frodo Gollum's original name, Sméagol, and that Gollum was once a Stoor Hobbit. Frodo's knowledge of this becomes important in the next film, The Two Towers.
