Warner Bros. has announced LEGO The Lord of the Rings, the latest game in Traveller's Tales LEGO series due for release later this year.

LEGO The Lord of the Rings follows the story of all three Lord of the Rings films, letting gamers of all ages play as their favourite fellowship members, including Frodo the Hobbit, Aragorn the Ranger, Gandalf the Wizard, Legolas the Elf and Gimli.

Like this month's LEGO Batman 2, LEGO The Lord of the Rings will also feature full voice acting. It's not yet known whether the original cast members will return to reprise their roles, however.

"We are huge aficionados of The Lord of the Rings franchise and are incredibly excited to put our special LEGO family-friendly touch on this classic fantasy adventure," said Tom Stone, managing director, TT Games.

"We've taken what fans are familiar with and love about The Lord of the Rings films and combined it with the playful LEGO style, which makes the story and gameplay accessible to gamers of all ages."

The game is due for release on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, Wii, DS, 3DS and PlayStation Vita in the autumn.

The next LEGO game, LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes, launches on June 22.
