The Journey to Middle-Earth

December 17, 2016

From the release of the first Lord of the Rings film in 2001, Mr Boo. was captivated by the story and with the release of the subsequent films and later The Hobbit trilogy. Over the years we have been to see each new film at the cinema, and have collected several memorabilia pieces such as the limited edition pieces that came with the original DVD release.

As Christmas approaches the subject of what to buy a Middle-Earth fan springs up and I have been looking for different gift ideas on what you could buy. 

Middle-Earth theatrical cut Blu-ray box set

A close up of a bottleGather all six films from director Peter Jackson’s ‘The Lord of the Rings’ and ‘The Hobbit’ trilogies in one boxset. Set in Middle Earth 60 years before events in ‘The Lord of the Rings’, ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’ follows the adventures of hobbit Bilbo Baggins,  who, at the instigation of the wizard Gandalf, suddenly finds himself co-opted into joining a company of 13 Dwarves led by Thorin Oakenshield to help reclaim the dwarves’ lost kingdom of the Lonely Mountain from the clutches of a dragon.

In ‘The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring’ Frodo is a hobbit living in the Shire, a quiet, peaceful part of Middle Earth. When it turns out that his elderly relative Bilbo is harbouring the ultimate Ring of Power and the evil Nazgul riders of Sauron are coming to find it, Frodo is entrusted by wizard Gandalf to deliver the Ring out of the Shire without it falling into their hands.
