“J.R.R. Tolkien’s book The Hobbit set off a wildfire, singlehandedly dominating the fantasy adventure genre in the last century. The “Tolkien effect” echoes everywhere throughout literature, television and movies. In his never-before-seen worlds and tales, Tolkien’s realms of wizards, hobbits, dragons and mythical beings evoke the best parts of human nature: our love of quests, our willingness to sacrifice for others, our hopes for good to defeat evil and the strength we get from true camaraderie.”

TOLKIEN is the story of how the young Tolkien is transformed from a lonely orphan into one of the great storytellers of all time — a story that explores the formative years of the renowned author’s life as he finds friendship, courage and inspiration among a fellow group of writers and artists at school. Their brotherhood strengthens as they grow up and weather love and loss together, including Tolkien’s tumultuous courtship of his beloved Edith Bratt, until the outbreak of the First World War which threatens to tear their fellowship apart. All of these experiences would later inspire Tolkien to write his famous Middle-earth novels. TOLKIEN is an enchanting tale lit with the power of imagination, the bonds of fellowship and the forging of purpose in the fires of love and war.

The box set comes with Blu-Ray and DVD + digital code and contains the following special features & specifications.
