Amazon is making a Lord of the Rings TV present, but it surely isn’t a straight adaptation of the best fantasy sequence of all time — it’s a prequel. The present, which already carries a multi-season dedication, will “discover new storylines previous 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 inadvisedly prolonged into that it’s going to most likely be some years earlier than anybody seems like revisiting it.
It’s potential the brand new sequence will mine the ponderous however wealthy Silmarillion for materials, as fan fiction writers and lore aficionados have completed for many years. The exploits of the Elf-Lords of previous would make for a stirring epic, whereas many would thrill at the opportunity of seeing Moria on the peak of its grandeur.
A lot is determined by the standard of the variation, although. Amazon has been fairly good about its Originals, however this will probably 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 movie firm behind the much-loved trilogy that started in 2001, and the Tolkien Property, in addition to HarperCollins for some cause.
The deal additionally “features a potential extra spin-off sequence,” presumably if it’s well-liked sufficient. In fact it’ll all be out there solely to Prime members.
As a fan, I’m cautiously optimistic. Elendiiil!
