Elijah Wood Has Picked His Favorite 'Lord of the Rings' Movie

Elijah Wood has picked his favorite The Lord of the Rings movie.

The Lord of the Rings trilogy began with The Fellowship of the Ring that came out in 2001.

The first movie focused on Frodo, “a meek Hobbit from the Shire” and his eight companions who set out on a journey to destroy the powerful One Ring and save Middle-earth from the Dark Lord Sauron.

Speaking on the ReelBlend podcast, Elijah says that the first one holds a special place in his heart.

“The feeling of shooting Fellowship was always extraordinary because of that group dynamic. Specifically, for me, it was getting to spend time with the four Hobbits as a unit, which was so lovely, and we all were so close,” he shared.

Elijah went on, “Being with Viggo (Mortensen) and Sean Bean and Orlando (Bloom), having that whole unit and working together on some of those sequences was just always thrilling, most of the Fellowship stuff was shot in earlier days, so there was some cohesion to that.”

“I, like you, share a specific love for Fellowship of the Ring as well, as a film. There is something about that fellowship, the connection that they share, the cohesion of that journey, the start of that journey that then splinters off and becomes so many different things from The Two Towers on — and I love those movies, too,” he continued. “They’re incredible, and they’re dynamic, and super emotional.”

“There is something really magical about The Fellowship of the Ring that is so beautiful, and I think, yeah, remains to be my favorite of the three films.”

The Fellowship of the Ring was followed by The Two Towers and The Return of the King.

You can watch the movies on Hulu.
