[13 Sept. Update – With Amazon’s Rings of Power series in the spotlight right now, we thought that now would be the perfect time to re-visit Peter Jackson’s OG trilogy, and brush up on your knowledge on one of the best fantasy trilogies of all-time.]
To say that Peter Jackson’s film adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s epic high fantasy source material – The Lord of the Rings – was a bit of a game-changer would be a monumental understatement.
From box-office smashing ticket sales to a multitude of impressive awards; not only is The Lord of the Rings trilogy a source of iconic memes and gifs, but it also helped usher in a new era for big, bombastic fantasy in modern TV and cinema. And that’s without mentioning the stellar cast that did an amazing job of bringing these beloved characters to life.
Indeed, as someone who’s read the books, Peter Jackson’s award-winning trilogy is that rare example of a film series that authentically captures the essence and the magic of its original literary material. In other words, the characters that Jackson and his talented team brought to the silver screen are very much how I imagine the protagonists to look and act in my mind’s eye, which is a pretty incredible feat, right?
However, today’s Lord of the Rings quiz isn’t here to test you about the Frodos, Gandalfs, Gollums, or Aragorns of Middle-earth. No, we’re here to focus upon the lesser-known folk who constitute the films’ side characters.
Just a heads up: Today, we’re concentrating our attention solely upon The Lord of the Rings trilogy. As a result, you won’t find any characters that only appear in The Hobbit trilogy. (We may throw in a few as incorrect answers, though, just to keep you on your toes — you’ve been warned!)
So, without further ado, then, go grab your bows, axes, and swords as we journey back to the high fantasy lands of Middle-earth in Twinfinite’s latest quiz. Can you name all of these Lord of the Rings side characters? Fly you fools!
