“We wants it, we needs it. Must have the precious. They stole it from us. Sneaky little hobbitses. Wicked, tricksy, false!” ~ J.R.R. Tolkien
The Hunt for Gollum take us on the dark adventure of Aragorn & Gandalf’s long search for the creature Gollum, who was himself in search of the One Ring.
Will this adventure, only hinted at in the Appendices of The Lord of the Rings be fleshed out in the new Middle-earth Series at Amazon Studios? Will the story of a young Aragorn, which is rumored to be the centerpiece of the series include this aspect of Aragorn’s life? Will we see Aragorn meeting Gandalf for the first time and watch the development of their friendship? Only time will tell.
So take a moment and watch this independent film directed by Chris Bouchard, which chronicles parts of Aragorn’s story that may well be featured in the new Lord of the Rings Series.
