Lord of the Rings Series Episode 2

Help keep Now Playing on the air!

Peter Jackson’s adaptation of Lord of the Rings runs over 9 hours, or 12 hours for the extended cuts. By contrast, in 1978 Ralph Bakshi’s animated adaptation claimed to tell the saga in just over two hours. In truth, this theatrical cartoon adapts half of J.R.R. Tolkien’s best-selling saga, and left audiences anticipating a conclusion that would never come. Can almost two novels be told in two hours?
