The whole story

The Lord of the Rings is a really, really long film trilogy directed by Peter Jackson and based on the book trilogy by J. R. R. Tolkien. It is about a group of short people trying to solve a problem by going on a really, really long journey, and taking way too long to do it. Because they could have just flown there on a giant eagle and saved a lot of hassle.

The original Lord of the Rings novel was written by J.R.R. Tolkien, as a rewrite of the Bible, such that it would appeal to modern audiences. Tolkien took a keen interest in children's literature (and children in general), since he was Catholic. As such, he was well aware that children began to get quite bored after reading the same old stories from the various novels of the Bible (although Exodus remained very popular, and even spawned an animated film later on, called "The Prince of Egypt"). He decided it was time for a more exciting rewrite of the Bible.
