In more than 11 hours of the Lord of the Rings movie trilogy all characters combined speak approximately 32,000 words. The nine members of the Fellowship alone take up about 17,000 of these words, a bit more than half.
In this visualization you can find out how many words each member of the Fellowship has spoken at the different locations throughout the trilogy. Did you realize how much Sam truly spoke. Or that Legolas said even less than Boromir!
The members of the Fellowship are ordered in the numbers of words spoken, with Gandalf having the most to say at the top. The locations are spread in a circle in approximate order of when that location became important in the movie.
Printed with archival ink on high-quality Hahnemühle Bamboo fine art paper (290 gsm) by theprintspace. This paper has a nice subtle texture and warm creamy white-yellow-ish color that fits the color palette and style of the visual.
I originally created this visualization for the "Movies" month of Data Sketches. You can find an interactive version of it here, and if you're interested to read about its creation process, from idea, to data, sketching, and programming, you can read about it here.
