it took him 12 years
The Hobbit is set about 60 years before most of the events in The Lord of the Rings.The Hobbit was published in 1937. The Lord of the Rings did not come out for over 20 years after that. It took Tolkien a long time to write the follow up.
No, J. R. R. Tolkien wrote all of The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings stories entirely himself, nobody is writing any new ones.However, his son Christopher Tolkien has taken many of his father's earlier works and compiled and edited them into publishable form. The first of these was The Silmarillion. These stories however contain no hobbits and are mostly about the Elves and wars that happened long ago in the First Age.
Perhaps you mean Saturn? That is the sixth planet of the solar system, the one with the rings.If you mean the name of the setting of the book The Lord of the Rings, that would be Arda, which is in Eä (all that is, the universe). Tolkien at least for some time supposed it was a fictional long-gone historic time of our Earth.
Tolkien began writing The Lord of the Rings as a series of sequels to The Hobbit in 1937 and completed the full set of six sequels in 1949. Initially he tried to convince his publisher to have The Lord of the Rings published as one complete volume to be followed by The Silmarillion in another volume, but his publisher rejected The Silmarillion as they wanted only "hobbit stories" not a "mythology of Middle Earth", which they saw as uninteresting to their readers. For economic reasons The Lord of the Rings was published in three volumes over the course of a year from 29 July 1954 to 20 October 1955.
The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring is about 178 mins. The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers is about 179 mins. The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King is about 201 mins.
It is not specified in either The Lord of the Rings or The Silmarillion how long it took to forge the 20 Rings of Power.
The lord of the rings trilogy is exactly 11 hours and 22 minutes.
No, the Middle-earth stories do not take place in any known historical period. Tolkien once described it as a fictional mythical past, but again long before any known period.
Absolutely! Just look at The Lord of the Rings trilogy. The Ring brings greed upon people; they yearn for it and long for it, and are willing to do literally anything to get their hands on it. Tolkien shows us how horrible greed can be, and how it can brutally twist people, sometimes out of their minds (just look at Gollum!).
He wanted to have a well-crafted universe where the history was long and full of ancestry giving credibility to the characters and their motives both past and present .
I didn't know Tolkien was a timelord. o.O It was written in the 1930's -.- Fran Walsh wrote the movie
The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (Platinum Series Special Extended Edition) is 223 minutes .
340 pages in my edition.
No, Éomer does not die during the narrative of The Lord of the Rings. In the Appendices we are told he lived a (for his people) long life, dying in his nineties.
Tolkien: Legolas carries a bow and arrows, and a long knife. In Lothlórien he is gifted a new bow.Peter Jackson: In this adaptation he carries two knives instead of one. In Rohan he also makes use of a sword supplied to him.
It is about two hours and 35 minutes long
The three Lord of the Rings movies (The Fellowship, The Two Towers, and The Return of the King) by New Line Cimena, directed by Peter Jackson, are on average about three hours each.
Tolkien taught for nearly forty years (1920-1959).
Priciple photography: 14-16 months
Principal photography: 14-16 months
JRR Tolkien died in 1973. His estate has been receiving all of the royalties from the books sales. The movie rights were sold long ago. Only film rights to the Hobbit and Lord of the Rings were sold. The estate recently settled a lawsuit regarding unpaid royalties which were part of the conditions of sale. Many of the royalties are paid to the Tolkien Trust which is a registered charity in the UK. The Tolkien Trust supports many educational and humanitarian charites worldwide. Their accounts are published on the UK Charities' comission website.
