Lord Of The Rings TV series

Report: Amazon Is Working With Warner Bros. to Make
Its Own Lord of the Rings TV Show:


"With Game of Thrones coming to an end soon, there’s going to be a hole in our lives for
a big-budget fantasy show. Amazon apparently hopes to fill that hole with one of the
biggest fantasy worlds around, with an adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s beloved series.

Variety reports that Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos has gotten personally involved in a series of
negotiations between Amazon Studios, Warner Bros. TV, and the Tolkien estate to bring
the seminal trilogy of books to the small screen."

I was hoping for the Silmarilion tho. Turin Turambar would bring tears to the audience.

Yep, the big-name companies are looking for their version of Game of thrones, aka a fantasy series that will rake in tons of viewers and become big in pop culture. Personally, I say let game of Thrones stay as the icon of this- otherwise, we have the (I think) currently Shannara chronicles, and I've even heard rumors of a Wheel of Time series potentially in the works by Sony (this one is the one that gives me the most fear, because of how dear to me that series is). And I should also mention that we're getting the Kingkiller prequel.

And while GoT went well... it always feels like most fantasy shows have the highest chances of flopping and should therefore either become movies or left alone entirely.

Which mean revolving to personal goal than save the middle earth like Shadow of Mordor.

Maybe it will really go full GoT format and will explore much greater scope of middle earth and it's factions. Rangers, Corsars, wizards, dwarfs ect, and their role of in war.

Well I don't dare to be even carefully optimistic about it just yet.

That's impossible, since the rights for LoTR/Hobbit and the rights for the rest of Tolkien's legendarium belong to the different people.

...O_o

Is Christopher Tolkien done being a sad, bitter lemon or something? Last time I checked, this guy was busy stonewalling any attempt to bring his father's works to the big and silver screens...he even went as far as ousting his own son from the Tolkien estate to get full control of it.

EDIT:

I hope that the Tolkien legendarium rights stays with the family. By that, I mean a close and tight monitoring by a dedicated member of the family who loved JRR's works as much as Christopher did. So the next works about Middle Earth gets to stay as close in spirit to the original as possible.

I would hate hack writers to take over, especially in this climate where people feels the need to ruin everything with identity politics and "inclusiveness"

What Will Amazon's Lord of the Rings TV Show
Actually Be About?:


"Much of the intricate detail of the books never made it into the movies, and fans
who’ve only seen Peter Jackson’s vision of Middle Earth miss much of the rich history
J.R.R. Tolkien wove into his world.

Fortunately for all Lord of the Rings fans, that rich history might be making its way to
your screen soon, via a new show produced by Amazon. The company recently
announced a plan to produce a new series taking place prior to the Lord of the Rings
movies, with a multi-season deal and the potential for a spin-off series.

This news is exciting, and either a really good thing or a really bad thing, depending
on what Amazon chooses to do with it. According to Amazon’s press release, the
series will “explore new storylines preceding J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Fellowship of the
Ring,” which tells us basically nothing. That might mean a Hobbit reboot, or it could
just mean a couple seasons of Aragorn and Legolas wandering around the woods."

Amazon Has Picked Star Trek 4 Writing Duo to
Develop its Lord of the Rings Show:


"At the Television Critics Association today, Amazon Studios announced that JD Payne
and Patrick McKay had been selected to helm the platform’s upcoming Lord of the Rings
television show. The announcement was made by Jennifer Salke, the studio head, The
Hollywood Reporter explains, during this year’s summer press tour of the TCA.

The duo, who previously wrote the Dwayne Johnson vehicle Jungle Cruise, are best
known for having been tapped by JJ Abrams to write the upcoming Star Trek 4.

Notably, the announcement doesn’t explain whether the duo will be writing,
showrunning, or some other particular role—only that they’ll be leading the development
of the series."
