The Elder Days are the first Ages of Middle-earth.
During the Second and Third Ages, the term referred to the First Age and before, but in the Fourth Age the term began to be applied to all three ages which came before: a time before the dominance of Men and the dwindling of the Elves and other races.
The movies references to the elder days Edit
Although mentioned sparingly, the Lord of the Rings movie made by Peter Jackson does not talk much of the elder days, even in the short time of the fourth age the movie does apply with.
Some notable references include the mentioning of Gondolin and Ungoliant in the Hobbit films. In the Fellowship of the Ring extended cut, Luthien and Beren are briefly mentioned. Morgoth is mentioned in passing, but it is never stated who he is.
