Animation Timeline: Entry 21 - The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002)

The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers is the second of the films based on J.R.R Tolkien's series of books titled The Lord of the Rings. The film was created in 2002 and directed by Peter Jackson.

What makes this film significant to the history of animation is its extensive work on motion capture animation. In the film there is a character named Gollum, who originally was going to be entirely CG, but soon was created using motion capture and voice of the actor Andy Serkis.

Not only does the film feature extensive work within motion capture, but also features detailed war scenes constructed entirely from CG.
