LOTR Characters – The Books vs. The Movies – Frodo Baggins

I thought it may be fun to do a post on the characters of LOTR, but the books vs. the movies.

Sit back, grab a cup of tea (or any other hot beverage), and enjoy LOTR Characters – The Books vs. The Movies – Frodo Baggins.

Frodo Baggins

Frodo Baggins

The Books —

Frodo begins as an innocent Hobbit who enjoys his books, being with Bilbo and his friends, and as any other Hobbit does, eating. He begins to notice changes in Bilbo, and knows that Bilbo will be leaving soon for a permanent vacation. Gandalf then goes on to explain to Frodo after Bilbo’s departure about The One Ring—but not much. He just tells him to keep the ring hidden while he—Gandalf—is gone for some time. Frodo is then left by Gandalf for many a year.

Gandalf then reappears a few more times over a few years, and in those short meetings, Frodo and Gandalf create a plan for Frodo to leave the Shire and head North toward Rivendel.

Frodo waits for Gandalf until the last minute, then leaves without him.

The Movie —

Frodo is practically just a happy-go-lucky guy until Biblo’s 111th birthday, where the latter disappears, and Frodo then has to take on the burden of the One Ring and travel to Rivendel, what seems to be directly after Biblo’s departure.

Throughout the movie, Frodo appears to be a bit weak… he does not come off as the strong willed Hobbit that he is in the books. He seams a little more gullible.

Thank you all for reading this post… I hope to do more in the future!!!

Please tell me what you think in the comments below! And please remember that this is only my opinion.

My question for You: What is your opinion of Frodo—in the books or movies?




I am a young girl in my teen years, pushing through life with the help and encouragement of my family and friends. But more than that, the Lord God is before me creating a path for me to follow. This blog shows my struggles and victories in life, the things I love or dislike. I hope you enjoy browsing through my blog. Before you leave, I hope you understand more fully how much the Lord Almighty means to me.

    1. Yes, I have always favored Sam over Frodo as well. I think it does have to do with Elijah Wood… thank you for commenting, and I am glad you enjoyed this!


  1. Loved your post and really interested in reading the rest of them aswell. Lord of the Rings is my favourite film and one of my favourite books. Love them both! I really liked Frodo in both, he was older and stronger in the books but I did love Elijah Wood’s Frodo aswell. I’m not sure I could have coped any better in that kind of situation. 🙂 xxx
