Lord of The Rings from Amazon has been brewing for a while. Not a lot is known about the series other than the fact that it will be set before the main movies and even “The Hobbit” franchise. The Amazon series has been hush-hush for a long time. But we recently received the news as to the release date of Lord of the Rings. Even though we do not have a lot of story details but any news based upon the Lord of the Rings mythos is good news, to say the least.
The Lord of the Rings series started off from a collection of books. It is a classic of the fantasy genre and the author has worked hard to create endearing characters. The one ring is a legendary meme at this point, so is “my precious” moment from the films. Sam and Frodo are easily recognizable characters that even non-fans recognize. On the other hand, the franchise has expanded into games too but the lore is murkier there.
Middle Earth: Shadow of War and Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor are both games that were praised by gamers. They were, however, condemned by fans for messing with the lore of the series. Now we are getting the Lord of Rings Amazon series which promises expansion on the lore. Here’s the first image from the upcoming big-budget prequel that Amazon is bringing us next year.
Jennifer Salke, Head of Amazon Studios had this to say,
“The journey begins September 2, 2022, with the premiere of our original ‘The Lord of the Rings series on Prime Video. I can’t express enough just how excited we all are to take our global audience on a new and epic journey through Middle-earth!
