Submit a Lord of the Rings Film Change!

We don’t want to miss any change the films made!

We need your help!

Starting in October 2023, we will be examining and discussing (in detail) every film change in Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings films on both our podcast Exploring Tolkien and on our YouTube channel.

But we haven’t revised our list in years! And there are things we missed, and things we just never finished (particularly the Return of the King list).

So if you’ve got a minute, and there’s something about the films we missed, let us know about it using one of the forms below!

THANK YOU!
