TITLE CARD: A long, long time ago, in the land of Middle-Earth . . .

A vast dark forest serves as the backdrop for the main title. Hoofbeats echo through the forest as a rollup slowly crawls into the sky:

Episode IV

It is a time of war and unrest. Allied
, striking out from the Lonely
, have won their first victory
against the evil Lord of Mordor.

During the fighting, a hobbit managed
to sneak away with the Dark Lord's
ultimate weapon, the One Ring, a
small piece of jewelry with enough
power to destroy an entire planet.

Pursued by the Dark Lord's sinister agents,
Frodo Baggins races to Rivendell with his
fellows, custodian of the stolen ring
that can save his people and restore
freedom to Middle-Earth . . .

Tell me that would not have been a better prologue than the one Peter Jackson used.
