The Lord Of The Rings Series Coming To Amazon Prime

The Lord Of The Rings Series Coming To Amazon Prime

It's possible that this new series will take inspiration from the Silmarillion for material and Amazon said that the deal could also have potential for a spin-off series as well but this presumably depends on the popularity of the show.

Not much is known about the upcoming series except that it is to be a prequel to the Lord of the Rings films and will tell new stories based in Middle Earth. Amazon says it will bring "The Lord of the Rings" to the small screen. Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below!

A representative for the Tolkien Estate added: "We are delighted that Amazon, with its longstanding commitment to literature, is the home of the first-ever multi-season television series for The Lord of the Rings".

Lord of the Rings is huge, yet people we left feeling a little bit cheated after Peter Jackson's subpar Hobbit trilogy.

A world-renowned literary work, and victor of the International Fantasy Award and Prometheus Hall of Fame Award, The Lord of the Rings novels was named Amazon customers' favorite book of the millennium in 1999 and Britain's best-loved novel of all time in BBC's The Big Read in 2003. The big-screen version of the trilogy earned almost $6 billion worldwide, and the final entry, "Return of the King", won the 2003 best picture Oscar. That trilogy made almost $3 billion and 17 Academy Awards.

Amazon announced the deal after reaching an agreement with Tolkien's estate, which issued its own statement. Astonishingly, that price does not include whatever it will cost to develop and eventually produce however many episodes/seasons are in our future. Amazon said the series would be available via the Prime Video app or online in more than 200 countries and territories, but it did not announce a release date.
