This week’s post features a fascinating video sent over by Charlie.

It’s an informative video essay that delves into the relevance and importance of nature in The Lord of the Rings trilogy.

You may already be aware of the crucial role the environment plays within the Middle-earth films, but the following video goes into a deeper examination, especially by analysing a famous Treebeard scene.

Have a look and enjoy!
