Overview
PART OF "THE LORD OF THE RINGS - THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RINGS: COLLECTOR'S GIFT SET"

National Geographic embarks on an extraordinary journey through myth, legend, language, and history to explore how the imaginary world of Middle-earth reflects our own.

Who was J.R.R. Tolkien and how did he create the amazing world of Middle-earth?
How does the struggle between good and evil in this epic story parallel challenges in our world?
Why are the places, heroes and villians of Middle-earth eerily familiar?
Who are the real-life Frodos today?

Only National Geographic can present such a unique look into the blockbuster film and the real-life story behind it.

This Special Edition features two never-before seen featurettes and a photo gallery.
