The Lord of the Rings : The Fellowship of the Ring
This is the story of Frodo Baggins, as he journeys to the fiery Mount Doom to destroy the One Ring of power in order to stop the dark lord, Sauron, from regaining his full power once more. In order to do this Frodo teams up with 3 of his hobbit friends, Sam, Pippin, and Merry, two humans Aragorn, and Boromir, a dwarf, Gimli, an elf, Legolas, and a wizard, Gandalf the Grey.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the story, Merry and Pippin are kidnapped by Orcs. After Boromir dies, Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli begin their search for Pippin and Merry.
