LOTR Mythology Explained (Video)

I think this might be a good video for all of us to check out especially before the final Hobbit movie is released in theaters. If you were ever curious how deep the Lord of The Rings mythology actually goes then you will definitely find this four minute video very interesting. I have never read any of the books but have seen all the movies, including The Hobbit movies. My father had read all the books back when he was in college and explained some of these things to me but had forgotten much of it by the time I got around to asking him about it.

I really had no idea that there were more evil and more powerful beings than Sauron. None of them really matter much by the time we are brought into the world of Middle Earth, but it’s still interesting to know. This video from CGP Grey doesn’t go into any great detail about the origins of each race or specifically why they came to be. However, it does give us an idea of the lineage and how this whole world was created. I definitely find this very intriguing and it makes me want to actually start reading the books.

This will definitely give you a leg up the next time you and your friends are having a debate about the Lord of The Rings or at least help you to get on the same playing field as them. Anyways check out the Lord of The Rings Mythology video below and let me know what you think Nerd Nation. Leave me a comment on this post, on the Facebook page, or on Twitter.
