Amazon to produce Lord of the Rings series

Lord of the Rings

According to Deadline, Amazon has officially acquired the TV rights to The Lord of the Rings based on the novels by J.R.R. Tolkien. This huge deal is said to cost around $250 million. Amazon’s commitment to a multi-season order on its streaming service to produce and distribute a Lord of the Rings series also includes potential spin-offs.

This series will be a prequel to Tolkien’s The Fellowship of the Ring. Some can only assume that the show, or one of the spin-offs, could follow the popular game series Shadow of Mordor, or a young Aragorn as mentioned in the end The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies.

The Lord of the Rings starred Elijah Wood, Ian McKellen, Liv Tyler, Sean Bean, Viggo Mortensen, Sean Astin, Cate Blanchett, Orlando Bloom and others. The three films combined to gross more than $2.9 billion worldwide winning multiple awards through its epic trilogy.

Lord of the Rings Synopsis: The future of civilization rests in the fate of the One Ring, which has been lost for centuries. Powerful forces are unrelenting in their search for it. But fate has placed it in the hands of a young Hobbit named Frodo Baggins (Elijah Wood), who inherits the Ring and steps into legend. A daunting task lies ahead for Frodo when he becomes the Ringbearer – to destroy the One Ring in the fires of Mount Doom where it was forged.
