One Ring to rule them all;
One Ring to find them;
One Ring to bring them all;
And in the darkness bind them.
These words, taken from The Fellowship Of The Ring by JRR Tolkien, have set fire to the imagination of millions of readers since they were first published in 1954. This epic fantasy novel was followed by The Two Towers and The Return Of The King, all of which have been adapted into animated movies and feature films.
Now, fans celebrate Tolkien Reading Day every March 25, which marks the day the men, elves, dwarves, wizards and hobbits of Middle-earth defeated the Dark Lord Sauron. So we present to you a Lord Of Rings special featuring Gandalf The Grey, The Lady Galadriel, Samwise Gamgee and Legolas Greenleaf, read by Malaysian actors.
