This extraordinary, epic tale of friendship, bravery, sacrifice and honour begins with the discovery of an ancient Ring thought lost for centuries has been found, and through a strange twist in fate has been given to a small Hobbit named Frodo.
When Gandalf discovers the Ring is in fact the One Ring of the Dark Lord Sauron, Frodo must make an epic quest to the Cracks of Doom in order to destroy it!
However he does not go alone. He is joined by Gandalf, Legolas the elf, Gimli the Dwarf, Aragorn, Boromir and his three Hobbit friends Merry, Pippin and Samwise, who together form The Fellowship of the Ring.
Through mountains, snow, darkness, forests, rivers and plains, facing evil and danger at every corner the Fellowship of the Ring must charge onwards towards the fiery pit where the ring was forged. Their quest to destroy the One Ring is the only hope for the end of the Dark Lords reign!
