The Hobbit: How Old Was Bilbo Baggins in the Hobbit?

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

Bilbo Baggins, anecdotal character, the little legend of J.R.R. Tolkien’s tale The Hobbit; or, The Lord of The Rings. In the story of the Hobbit, Bilbo Baggins joins a gathering of smaller people on a campaign to recoup their taken products. It is on this excursion that Bilbo finds the ring that is the focal point of Tolkien’s later three-section novel The Lord of the Rings (1954–55).

With regards to being a fan of all things J.R.R Tolkien, the characters and events of Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit are as genuine, too, real life. Obviously, we realize that these are works of art, imagination, and fiction, however, the magnificence of writing and film is that it permits readers and crowds to get away from reality for a second and become a piece of something past this present reality. In truth, a few fans can take things somewhat far, yet, in case you’re not harming anybody what’s the issue? With the entirety of the fervor working with each and especially the last portion of The Hobbit series, I was interested regarding a significant inquiry that sprung up in my mind: how old was Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit?

Despite the fact that I only have a few information about the Lord of the Rings universe due to irregularly observing a portion of the movies, I do realize that the ring gives the inconceivable capacity to its proprietors and could do some quite terrible harm (favor Gollum’s heart, he didn’t have the foggiest idea what was waiting for him.)

I love to believe I’m an increasingly sensible human being with regards to writing and film reviews; however I will readily let my interest take the best of me now. So let’s back to Bilbo Baggins again.

In The Hobbit movies, Baggins is portrayed by the talented artist Martin Freeman, who is in his mid 40s and as per The Hobbit Wiki Baggins was an “agreeable age of 50” when Gandalf recruited him for his excursion to recover the Lonely Mountain from the mythical beast Smaug.

Considering a hobbit reaches his maturity level in 33 years of age, Bilbo Baggins resembled a spritely 21-year-old prepared to take a step in the world. If we follow the historical backdrop of the novels, we see that the One Ring held numerous forces; some of them are positive, yet some are insidiousness or harmful. The principal evident impact was it would allow the wearer intangibility, and it would expand the life expectancy of the wearer, so no maturing! This could lead to some factors in deciding the specific timetable of every one of the Lord of the Ring universe. We see in the Fellowship of the Ring, the first part of the Lord of the Things film trilogy that Bilbo Baggins is commending his 111th birthday celebration alongside his nephew, Frodo Baggins, transitioning birthday at 33.

In the event that I set my mathematical abilities to work, I can state with assurance that there were around 60 years between the finish of The Hobbit story and the start of The Lord of the Rings. Obviously, fans had communicated a touch of disarray with the throwing choice by Peter Jackson in light of the fact that in LOTR, Ian Holm’s Bilbo looks such a great amount of more seasoned than Martin Freeman’s Bilbo, when he shouldn’t age by any stretch of the imagination. 

I’m a film and dream buff and all, yet in some cases, we have to recollect that we face a daily reality such that on-screen characters age and we have to offer the person a reprieve, I don’t think the IRL Fountain of Youth was in his financial plan. Regardless, however, Bilbo Baggins at 111 years of age is as yet looking damn young and energetic for his age!
