I have created this article to be a subarticle to Tolkien vs. Jackson: Differences Between Story and Screenplay. It is also written in such a way that it stands alone. All differences between the FR book and movie should eventually find their way into this article.—N3rus 17:42, 10 March 2007 (UTC)

Boromir Arrows Entry Edit

We don't need this, do we? It's not a difference really, as "many" could be three. —The preceding unsigned comment was summoned by Nickthegeek (talkcontribs).

I agree and have removed the entry. Razor77 01:55, 1 August 2009 (UTC)


I think this article could use some reorganization and headings, which I do not have the skills to do. If someone could come up with a way to organize this article so it is easier to read (I find headings easier that bullet points) that would be awesome. --  Rain Thalo  talk  contribs  edits  email  21:39, November 9, 2009 (UTC)

There are different versions of the book. The first version of the book I read is impressively similar to the movie adaptions, aside from missing sections and conveniences to screenplay and to cover for missing sections. This whole article is fallacious unless you have read all versions of the book, the better of which was obviously used to make the film. Current one I am reading is where the farmer is a good guy.

Lord of the Rings Third edition Edit

I have worked it out. This entire set of articles is completely redundant. You need to read the Third Edition, which is obviously what the movie was based on, and impressively so. You will find that word for word large parts of the movie are exact. Second edition is merely a shadow of what Tolkein achieved.
