The Two Towers

While Frodo and Sam make their way through the rocky outskirts of Mordor, the remaining Fellowship struggle for their lives. Merry and Pippin have been kidnapped by orcs who intend to deliver them into the hands of the evil white wizard Saruman. He is burning the trees of Fangorn to produce his armies, which will march on the people of Rohan. While tracking them, Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli come across an unexpected savior: Gandalf, newly arisen from the dead. Under his influence, they ride into Edoras and free an earthy king from the influence of Saruman, but Théoden desires to take his people to the mountain fortress of Helm’s Deep.

While the High Queen of the Elves instigates the realignment of old alliances, Elrond attempts to convince his daughter to sail away with her people to the Undying Lands, and forsake her promise to Aragorn. Sam and Frodo are joined by a devious foe, the creature Gollum, who vows to take them into Mordor.
