J.R.R. Tolkien's Works is the collective term for a franchise regrouping novels and writings by J.R.R. Tolkien and various spin-off works based on them, chief among them Peter Jackson's live-action adaptation of the most prominent.


J.R.R. Tolkien's works take place in a fantasy world known as Middle-Earth, during what is called the Third Age. Middle-Earth is home to numerous wizards, who are the mortal incarnations of angelic beings known as Maiar. Due to their meddling with the course of mortal affairs, Middle-Earth is inhabited by several races on top of men: HobbitsDwarvesElves, and so on and so forth. Moreover, two great maiar turned evil and became Dark Lords: Morgoth, and, later, his apprentice, Sauron.

Morgoth and Sauron created large armies to conquer Middle-Earth, and, rather than simply recruit men or dwarves or hobbits, they used their magic to create new races, who still roam Middle-Earth in the Third Age long after the defeat of Morgoth and Sauron. Those include OrcsGoblinsDragons and so on. Aside from The Silmarillion, most of J.R.R. Tolkien's Works concern the final defeat of Sauron, who has survived his apparent death in a weakened form thanks to a magic ring that must be destroyed before he can truly be banished from the mortal world.

Animated Tolkien is the name on this wiki for the adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's works by the Rankin-Bass Studios (which includes two feature films, The Hobbit and The Return of the King). Unlike the Peter Jackson films and Ralph Bakshi's animated adaptations of The Fellowship of the Ring and The Two Towers, they possess their own page on this wiki due to the version of the various creatures presented being drastically different in design (and sometimes in behavior) from Tolkien's original versions.
