The Hobbit 3: Battle of Five Armies came out Wednesday and although it wasn't the best Middle-Earth film, I enjoyed it and still hope they will make more Middle-Earth films (with Peter Jackson, of course). To celebrate the release of the last Hobbit film, I've decided to share with you guys some videos from Middle-Earth.
Born Of hope
This hour long original drama is set in the time before the War of the Ring and tells the story of the Dúnedain, the Rangers of the North, before the return of the King. Inspired by only a couple of paragraphs written by Tolkien in the appendices of the Lord of the Rings, we follow Arathorn and Gilraen, the parents of Aragorn, from their first meeting through a turbulent time in their people's history. This one even won i London's Independent Film Festival for best Micro-Budget feature. Interested? Check it out below.
The hunt for Gollum
The story is adapted from elements of the appendices of The Lord of the Rings. The story follows the Heir of Isildur, the "greatest huntsman and traveller in Middle Earth," as he sets out to find the creature Gollum. The creature must be found to discover the truth about the Ring, and to protect the future Ringbearer.
This one also won a few awards. And has Gollum!!!
And for those who need some explaining about the somewhat confusing Mythology surrounding Middle-Earth, this video has some great insane facts...like for example Gandalf is an ANGEL!!!
I personally loved the fan made films and the video above was very helpful.
But the question remains...Did you love the extra films? If not let us know why below.
