An ancient Ring thought lost for centuries has been found, and through a strange twist in fate has been given to a small Hobbit named Frodo. When Gandalf discovers that the Ring is in fact the One Ring of the Dark Lord Sauron, Frodo must make an epic quest to the Cracks of Doom in order to destroy it! However, he does not go alone. He is joined by Gandalf, Legolas the Elf, Gimli the Dwarf, the Men Aragorn and Boromir, and his three Hobbit friends Merry, Pippin, and Samwise. Through mountains, snow, darkness, forests, rivers, and plains, facing evil and danger at every corner, the Fellowship of the Ring must go onward. Their quest to destroy the One Ring is the only hope for the end of the Dark Lord’s reign!

Sauron’s forces increase. His allies grow. The Ringwraiths return in an even more frightening form. Saruman’s army of Uruk-Hai is ready to launch an assault against Aragorn and the people of Rohan. Yet, the Fellowship is broken and Boromir is dead. For the little hope that is left, Frodo and Sam march on into Mordor, unprotected. A number of new allies join with Aragorn, Gimli, Legolas, Pippin, and Merry; and they must defend Rohan and attack Isengard. Meanwhile, Sauron’s troops mass toward Minas Tirith, the City of Gondor, for the War of the Ring is about to begin.
