Amazon is making a ‘Lord of the Rings’ prequel series
Amazon is making a Lord of the Rings TV show however it isn’t a straight adaptation of the good fantasy sequence of all time – it's a prequel. The present, which already carries a multi-season dedication, will “discover new storylines prefering J.R.R. Tolkien's The Fellowship of the Ring . “
In fact, The Hobbit precedes Fellowship by a few years, however that story was tainted so ably by the absurd trilogy it was inadvertently prolonged into that it’s going to in all probability be some years earlier than anybody seems like revisiting it.
It's doable the brand new sequence will mine the ponderous however wealthy Silmarillion for materials, as fan fiction writers and lore aficionados have accomplished for many years. The exploits of the Elf-Lords of outdated would make for a stirring epic, whereas many would thrill at the opportunity of seeing Moria on the peak of its grandeur.
A lot relies on the standard of the difference, although. Amazon has been fairly good about its Originals, however this shall be an enterprise far past the scope of something its studios and companions have but tried. Amazon is partnering with New Line Cinema, which in fact was the corporate behind the trilogy that started in 2001, and the Tolkien Property, in addition to HarperCollins for some purpose.
The deal additionally “includes a potential additional spin-off series,” often if it's common sufficient. In fact it can all be accessible completely to Prime members.
As a fan, I'm cautiously optimistic. For Frodo!
