Get Ready for more Lord of the Rings - But Not at the Box Office

Get Ready for more Lord of the Rings - But Not at the Box Officeby

Since director Peter Jackson revitalized JRR Tolkien’s Lord of The Rings saga for the big screen over a decade ago, it’s become a franchise that has gained new fans around the world and in their millions. It’s helped to bring fantasy fiction back into the mainstream, and along with Game of Thrones more recently, has helped to cement the idea that far-flung kingdoms, dragons and quests for incredible power and wealth are in fact rather popular with a paying public. We’ve already seen the prequel, The Hobbit, reach theaters in the form of a trilogy – and it seems that we’ve by no means seen the last of Middle Earth.

However, plans that are emerging won’t be treading over old ground – Frodo and Bilbo’s quests are perhaps over and done with at least unless the reboot train rolls around – as it seems that Amazon Studios have secured the rights to the book series of Lord of The Rings – with an emphasis from scripted series head Sharon Tal Yguado stating that a new story will be unfolding on the small screen for old fans. “We are honored to be working with the Tolkien Estate and Trust, HarperCollins and New Line on this exciting collaboration for television and are thrilled to be taking The Lord of The Rings fans on a new epic journey in Middle Earth,” her statement advises.

It’s thought that Amazon is taking renewed focus on its original content in an effort to compete with big-budget TV such as Game of Thrones, Westworld and The Walking Dead – and that, in this case, has included taking an alternative look at a much-loved property from literature and film. It’s been reported that the TV series – set to appear on Amazon Prime Video – will focus on a storyline path that directly precedes the first book and movie – The Fellowship of The Ring – which means we could well see more of the Hobbits and Gandalf in an albeit new medium. This could also give plenty of scope to allow the studios to create new characters and circumstances, providing they tie up with the original tales.

Either way, the news is exciting for various reasons – as it seems that the current trend in TV-making could well be revitalising movie or book properties from yesteryear for the binge-watching market. More news on the return to Middle Earth very soon!
