The first instalment in the saga was Peter Jackson's adaption of the first book in the Lord of the Rings called The Fellowship of the Ring.
After a success with the first instalment, Peter Jackson continued on with the sequel based on the second part of The Lord of the Rings called The Two Towers and the middle part in the story of the One Ring. The film was released in the year 2002.
The final chapter in the story of Frodo Baggins and the ring adapts the final part in Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings. The film was released in the year 2003.
Peter Jackson returned to the world of Middle-earth with the story of Tolkien's other well known novel The Hobbit. He split the plot into three parts and the first film was released in 2012.
The second part of The Hobbit directed by Peter Jackson was relased in 2013.
Peter Jackson's Middle-earth saga comes to an epic close with the release of The Battle of the Five Armies in 2014.
Amazon Studios’ forthcoming series brings to screens for the very first time the heroic legends of the fabled Second Age of Middle-earth’s history. This epic drama is set thousands of years before the events of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, and will take viewers back to an era in which great powers were forged, kingdoms rose to glory and fell to ruin, unlikely heroes were tested, hope hung by the finest of threads, and the greatest villain that ever flowed from Tolkien’s pen threatened to cover all the world in darkness. Beginning in a time of relative peace, the series follows an ensemble cast of characters, both familiar and new, as they confront the long-feared re-emergence of evil to Middle-earth. From the darkest depths of the Misty Mountains, to the majestic forests of the elf-capital of Lindon, to the breathtaking island kingdom of Númenor, to the furthest reaches of the map, these kingdoms and characters will carve out legacies that live on long after they are gone.
The only game that can currently be considered canon is The Lord of the Rings: War in the North.
The games Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor and Middle-earth: Shadow of War are confirmed to be non-canon to the film universe but are still heavily tied to the movies. Information from these games is kept seperate on this wiki, labeled as the Monolith Timeline.
The storylines of these games are considered completely non-canon, the only campaign that slightly works with the movies being the good campaign of The Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-earth IIas well as the The Rise of the Witch King dlc. These games can be considered sources for characters, troops and locations except where contradicted by canon material.
