About This Quiz

The very first Lord of the Rings movie was directed by Peter Jackson and was released in 2001. Shortly after, two of its sequels were released and one of the best film trilogies of all time was made. Of course, they were adapted for the screen from J. R. R. Tolkien's book series of the same name, but what many would call a confusing book was made that much more amazing when we saw it at the movie theater. Besides Jackson's great directing abilities, the series is amazing not only because of the different cities and creatures we were introduced to but also because of the characters.  The last film may have been released about 15 years ago, but the recent Hobbit series should have refreshed your memory about who is who. So, can you tell us the real names of these Lord of the Rings characters?

Of course, you know that Frodo was played by Elijah Wood and that the gorgeous Legolas was played by Orlando Bloom, but can you tell us Saruman's real name? Would you be able to correctly choose Arwen's, Bilbo's and Gimli's real names?  It's time to test just how many names you can correctly match to these Lord of the Rings characters.
