The Lord of the Rings: Official Movie Guide was published in 2001 in anticipation of the then upcoming film The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. The book was written by Brian Sibley.

[edit] From the publisher

A heavily-illustrated behind-the-scenes guide to the first film, featuring colour photos of the cast, locations, sets, monsters and costumes, and an overview of the making of the film trilogy over the last five years. Designed as a celebration of the films, it will include double-page photo spreads showing exclusive photographs in sumptuous detail.

Written by the writer and broadcaster Brian Sibley, a foremost expert on The Lord of the Rings (he adapted the novel for the award-winning BBC radio dramatisation in 1980), the book will include a brief history of the Lord of the Rings phenomenon prior to the movies and will look ahead to the second and third parts of the trilogy in 2002/2003.
