How to watch all the ‘Hobbit’ and ‘Lord of the Rings’ movies in order, chronologically


Warner Bros.

Of all the TV series debuting this year, one of the most exciting has to be Amazon’s power rings, which is set in the Second Age of Middle-earth, when the 19 Rings were forged and given to elves, dwarves, and humans. the How many rings now? Wasn’t it just the one ring to rule them all? It’s time for a refresher course in JRR Tolkien’s Middle-earth.

And while you could read the whole the Lord of the Rings book series, The Hobbit and all those appendages, it might be faster to watch the movies. Although many filmmakers have adapted Tolkien’s work over the years (thanks to the trippy 1978 anime Ralph Bakshi the Lord of the Rings), none have done it as completely as Peter Jackson, who made six films out of two trilogies devoted to the events of Middle-earth. He even won a few Oscars for it.

Unfortunately, Jackson is not involved in power rings. The new TV series is also set before The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, so chances are it won’t focus on any of the characters that audiences know and love from the movies. But if you’re looking to immerse yourself in the lore of the world, including what all those rings are all about, the movies are a great way to jog your memory (or introduce yourself for the first time). here is how to watch all peter jackson movies The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit movies in order. They’re listed by release date, but if you want to watch the events in the order they happened, there’s a chronological order at the end.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012)

After completing the the Lord of the Rings trilogy, Jackson couldn’t stay away from Middle-earth. Of course, he took a break of almost 10 years (during which he made an excellent King Kong movie), but then returned for the Hobbit Trilogy. It takes place before the events of The Lord of the Rings and follows Frodo’s uncle, Bilbo, who was the first Hobbit to encounter the One Ring.

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (2013)

It wouldn’t be a high fantasy series without at least one dragon, would it? Bilbo, along with 13 dwarves and the wizard Gandalf, sets out to defeat the dragon Smaug to save the lost kingdom of Erebor from the dwarves. (Lucky he has that ring.) Benedict Cumberbatch plays Smaug through the magic of motion capture.

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (2014)

Fans of the Battle of Helm’s Deep had no idea about the epic Battle of the Five Armies. But, with the very future of Middle-earth at stake, how not to take up arms? With dwarves, elves, men, and orcs all battling into the mix, this finale might be the most action-packed of the entire series.
