Tip: Don''t use copyrighted characters from a book/film, which the worlds biggest publisher has paid millions of dollars to license the game rights for. EA have a lot of lawyers and they only feed them once a week so they are always eager for fresh meat.

Or just dont make it publicly available. Although I am not too certain about the nature of EA''s license, I bet you can get away with it just fine if you don''t try to sell it. After all, it''s not like your the first guy with the great idea of making a LOTR game ...

Correction to Obscure: publisher(s)

Everyone affiliated with the movies, books, and games on LOTR has some sort of license, and plenty of lawyers.

One idea is using screen captures and get sprites from the film.
If you have to, draw over them giving a cell look.

When your game is done, and you start getting noticed from it, then worry about copyrights and such. Until then, use the images, and have fun.
