They're taking the Hobbits to Isengard! With legendary line deliveries from Orlando Bloom, voicework from C-3PO and the best skincare regime in the game, one of the oldest members of the fellowship takes centre stage in this week's episode. Legolas Greenleaf is our focus for this week's episode of in-depth Lord of the Rings character guide Not Another F**king Elf.
Every week, Paul Ridd and Catherine Bray look at a character’s place in Tolkien’s mythos, their place in pop culture, literature and adaptations. We look at Peter Jackson’s adaptations, Ralph Bakshi’s Lord of the Rings (1978), the 1979 Mind’s Eye radio adaptation, Return of the King (1980) from Rankin-Bass, the 1981 BBC Radio adaptation, and the 1990 Rob Inglis and 2020 Andy Serkis audiobooks.
