Ralph Bakshi’s The Lord of the Rings

Watch the original trailer for the 1978 animated classic film The Lord of the Rings! 

“This is the legend of Middle-earth, as written in the hearts of men!”

Just a reminder that this November will mark the 40th Anniversary of Ralph Bakshi’s The Lord of the Rings!

On November 15, 1978 the first ever full length animated adaption of The Lord of the Rings hit theaters! Though the film got mixed reviews, it was considered a box office success for it’s day.

    I honestly feel bad for how this movie was portrayed; it wasn’t that bad and there was promise for a sequel but due to the Studio’s meddling (sound familiar) as well as public disapproval for the false advertising from the title because of the ending the film has since gained a bad rep.

    I would love to see more animated takes on Tolkien’s work.
