Production Art from Ralph Bakshi’s Lord of the Rings

Ralph Bakshi’s Lord of the Rings may have had its faults—I admit I’ve been afraid to see it since it’s realease—but to my eight year old self, the gritty hybrid of drawing and live was a dark and fantastic view of the world. I had loved the kinder gentler Rankin/Bass Hobbit at seven and was ready to see the world as a riskier almost-real place. Now, Ralph Bakshi has been generously showing off various bits of production on on his Facebook page. I may still be wary of watching the movie again but it’s a real kick to see behind the real-life work that went into the production.
