This fall, LEGO is digging its detachable, plastic hands
into another blockbuster movie franchise, The Lord of the Rings. The title was
announced earlier last month, but Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has now released a
trailer showing their interpretation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s epic journey to
destroy the one ring. Surprisingly, LEGO Lord of the Rings’ characters are
fully voiced – a departure from the quirky miming of the Star Wars, Indiana
Jones, Batman and Harry Potter series.
From the looks of things, players will be taking control of
characters like Gandolf, Frodo, Aragorn, Legolas, Gimli, Boromir, Merry and
Pipin as the explore the locations and encounter enemies from the books and movies.
