Timothy Morrison

was it really true that the Beatles were going to make a tribute to the lotr series?

Morgan The Beatles' interest in adapting The Lord of the Rings came from Denis O'Dell, who had helped produce the band's previous big-screen musical efforts. With one more film left on The Beatles' contract with United Artists, O'Dell thought his Fab Four would be ideally suited to Tolkien's work and that Frodo's tale could be turned into a live-action adventure starring the band. Of course, the film would've been a musical, featuring new tunes from John, Paul, George, and Ringo. After hearing O'Dell's idea, The Beatles themselves were keen on pressing ahead, having been fans of the original books.
