On September 21, 1937 J.R.R. Tolkien published The Hobbit or There and Back Again. The children’s fantasy novel went on to win numerous awards and the hearts of children and adults throughout the world and continues to do so to this day. Based on the absolute success of The Hobbit, Tolkien’s publisher requested a sequel. Tolkien delivered that sequel in 1954 with The Fellowship of the Ring – the first volume in the three part The Lord of the Rings epic. The Lord of the Rings has gone on to sell over 150 million copies.

The success of these classic novels spawned numerous radio, TV and film adaptions, magazines, games, clothing, props and everything in between. With such a vast and rich world, as the world Tolkien created with Middle Earth, it can be hard for the Hobbit / Lord of the Rings fan to keep up. We’ve created one of our famous Shopping Guides to help you get the perfect gift for the Hobbit / Lord of the Rings fan in your life.

For VIEWING

The Hobbit (Extended Edition) Blu-RayThe Hobbit (Extended Edition) Blu-Ray continues the Peter Jackson tradition of releasing the films of Middle-Earth with the true collectors in mind.

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug on Blu-Ray – The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug continues the saga of Bilbo Baggins as he and his band of dwarves make their way to the Lonely Mountain for their first encounter with Smaug the dragon. This edition comes with the 3D Blu-Ray, Blu-Ray, DVD & Digital Copy. The up-charge for the 3D edition is more than worth it and comes with an ample amount of bonus features.

The Lord of the Rings Trilogy on Blu-RayThe Lord Of The Rings trilogy is one of, if not the, greatest film series of all time (Star Wars fanatics will probably debate that, but still). This set is a 15 disc set with insane amounts of bonus features, interviews, documentaries, and everything else you could think of. It’s truly the ultimate collectors edition of The Lord of the Rings trilogy on Blu-Ray. The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers and The Return of the King are all here in their extended editions, totaling more than 4 hours for each film.

The Lord of the Rings (1978 Animated Movie) Blu-Ray – The Lord of the Rings (1978) was a controversial adaptation by animator Ralph Bakshi. Telling only half of the story, the film ends abruptly in the middle of The Two Towers, as a sequel was planned. An animated masterpiece, The Lord of the Rings (1978) stands as another stunning example of the varied interpretations of Middle-Earth. 

Ringers: Lord of the Fans DVDRingers: Lord of the Fans DVD is a wonderful documentary centered on the fandom of The Lord of the Rings. Tackling fandom from the release of The Hobbit book in 1937 to today, Ringers: Lord of the Fans shows the influence Tolkien’s books have had.
