Get a Dose of The Hobbit — and All Things Tolkien — Online

How can you get enough hobbit after just one (albeit, one three-hour-long) IMAX screening of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey? Relive the magic of Middle-earth long after the theater with the following guide to finding more Tolkien entertainment online.

Downloadable Movies
Want a second helping of the characters you already grew to know and love in Peter Jackson's original films on Tolkien's works? Rent or download the movies here:

  • iTunes — Download the Peter Jackson Lord of the Rings trilogy, which includes The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, or The Return of the King for $20 or the HD bundle for $45.
  • Amazon Instant Video — Rent the trilogy for $1 per movie on Amazon Instant Video, or watch the animated 1978 film ($3) on any device with Amazon Instant Video streaming capabilities, including Xbox, PS3, iPad, and Kindle Fire.
