The Lord of the Rings is a major work of literature that we owe to JRR Tolkien. But the general public has especially discovered this vast universe with the Peter Jackson trilogy between 2001 and 2003. A trilogy with numerous awards, including several Oscars, carried by several actors including Elijah Wood. The actor plays the main character, Frodo, and always takes pleasure in talking about this trilogy which is almost 20 years old (already!). The man was accompanied by stars like Ian McKellen, Cate Blanchett, Viggo Mortensen, Orlando Bloom, Sean Astin… And soon, The Lord of the Rings will return in an exclusive series concocted by Amazon Prime Video.
In interview for USA Today (via ScreenRant), Elijah Wood was asked about The Lord of the Rings. He was notably asked if his son was going to see the trilogy.
And the American actor intends to make him discover this franchise!

Elijah Wood already has an idea of the perfect age to see the trilogy
Being a famous actor also means showing your work to your cherubs. Jason Momoa, the performer of Aquaman, was recently asked about this. The actor of Game of Thrones revealed to refuse that his children see certain films of his filmography, in particular the most violent.
For Elijah Wood, same question with The Lord of the Rings with the difference that his son is in infancy.
The American actor therefore wishes to take his time but seems ready to show (very early) this adaptation by Peter Jackson. The man asks himself: “Maybe 8 years would be appropriate? “.
Used to acting in horror films (Come to Daddy, Maniac, Open Windows…), Elijah Wood confides that he “started [à en regarder] at 5 years ”and recognizes“ not to be the best judge ”. Without forgetting that the man is a child star!
I’m probably ready to show it to him sooner rather than later, but that will be up to him. But 7 or 8 years old, that sounds okay to me.

The Lord of the Rings is classified PG-13 in the USA, which means that the actor could show this trilogy to his son very early on. A trilogy, certainly fantastic, but with some frightening moments. The Hobbit is much more aimed at young spectators!
