One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all and in the darkeness bind them
In ancient times the Rings of Power were crafted by the Elven-smiths, and Sauron, The Dark Lord, forged the One Ring, filling it with his own power so that he could rule all others. But the One Ring was taken from him, and though he sought it throughout Middle-earth, it remained lost to him. After many ages it fell into the hands of Bilbo Baggins, as told in The Hobbit.
In a sleepy village in the Shire, young Frodo Baggins finds himself faced with an immense task, as his elderly cousin Bilbo entrusts the Ring to his care. Frodo must leave his home and make a perilous journey across Middle-earth to the Cracks of Doom, there to destroy the Ring and foil the Dark Lord in his evil purpose.

Tolkien's classic fantasy series The Lord of the Rings , the director could barely get a two-movie version approved. Luckily, Jackson and the prescient folks at New Line worked out a deal to turn what was a trilogy on paper into a trilogy at the box office. Logic won the day—and a boatload of Academy Awards. Since then, however, Hollywood has taken notice of the massive earning potential of sequels. With multi-film adaptations proving to be long-term money-makers that keep drawing in viewers a phenomenon one might give some credit to Jackson's work on The Lord of the Rings , executives realized that if they could stretch out popular books into two movies, they could actually double their money. Sure, the book is long and the additional screen time allowed the studio to fill out details they might have skipped in one movie.
The first book sets the stage for the adventure and follows Frodo Baggins as he flees from his home in the Shire to escape the minions of the Dark Lord Sauron. Sauron seeks the One Ring that will allow him to control the Bearers of the nineteen Lower Rings and control the three major races of Middle-earth: the Elves, the Men and the Dwarves. The One Ring has been inherited by Frodo who finds himself unwittingly in the midst of a struggle for world domination. The beginning of the first chapter in the book begins quite lightly, following on from The Hobbit which is more of a childrens story than Lord of the Rings. It begins with Bilbo Baggins celebrating his th or eleventy first, as it is called birthday, on the same day that Frodo celebrates his 33rd birthday. His 'coming of age' At the birthday party, Bilbo disappears after his speech, to the surprise of all. Frodo later learns about the ring which he had used to make himself invisible, and also to some of its darker powers.
