Synopsis


The Lord of the Rings is a 1978 American high fantasy animated film directed by Ralph Bakshi. The screenplay was written by Peter S. Beagle, based on an earlier draft by Chris Conkling. It is an adaptation of J. R. R. Tolkien's high fantasy epic The Lord of the Rings, comprising The Fellowship of the Ring and the first half of The Two Towers. Set in Middle-earth, the film follows a group of hobbits, elves, men, dwarves, and wizards who form a fellowship. They embark on a quest to destroy the One Ring made by the Dark Lord Sauron, and ensure his destruction.
