"Bilbo Baggins, Gandalf and the rest of Middle Earth are making the switch to the small screen after Amazon announced it has committed to a multi-series adaptation inspired by JRR Tolkien’s classic fantasy novels.

The television adaptation will tell new stories based in the period preceding The Fellowship of the Ring, the novel that provided the basis for the first part of Peter Jackson’s film trilogy."

‘Lord of the Rings’ TV Series Reportedly Set to Follow Young Aragorn

Amazon’s very expensive Lord of the Rings TV series might focus on the days of young Aragorn, the character played by Viggo Mortensen in the films. At least, that’s the rumor floating around.

Up until now, we’ve had very few details on Amazon’s Lord of the Rings TV series. In truth, all we really knew was that the show was going to be very, very expensive. Now, we might finally have some sort of idea regarding the story. TheOneRing.net (a longtime source of reliable scuttlebutt related to Middle-earth) reports that the show’s first season is going to focus on a young Aragorn.

I hope that they don't turn Aragorn into another whiny teen (as what Hollywood tends to do) just like what was done in The Shannara Chronicles.

Amazon Hires Star Trek 4 Scribes for Lord of the Rings TV Series

Amazon officially announced at their TCA panel today that Star Trek 4 writers  JD Payne and Patrick McKay have been hired to bring the streaming service’s ambitious Lord of the Rings TV series to life.

“The rich world that J.R.R. Tolkien created is filled with majesty and heart, wisdom and complexity,” the writing partners said in a statement. “We are absolutely thrilled to be partnering with Amazon to bring it to life anew. We feel like Frodo, setting out from the Shire, with a great responsibility in our care — it is the beginning of the adventure of a lifetime.”

Payne and McKay have already penned the in-development Star Trek 4 plus Disney’s long in-the-works Jungle Cruise film starring Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt.

Amazon Confirms the Setting of Its Lord of the Rings Series

The Lord of the Rings original series may be a few years away, but it’s easily one of Amazon’s most anticipated projects. Peter Jackson’s LOTR trilogy is still beloved by fans, and there’s not a lot of demand for a rehash. Fortunately, Amazon’s Lord of the Rings series is going to focus on a rarely explored era of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle-Earth.

Via Entertainment Weekly, Amazon’s LOTR twitter account revealed a new map of Middle-Earth, and confirmed that the show will be set in the Second Age. That places approximately 3,000 years of history between the series and the beginning of LOTR.

Casual fans may not realize it, but Jackson’s Fellowship of the Rings actually depicted the end of the Second Age, when the last alliance of elves and men confronted Sauron’s forces. The Second Age covered nearly 3,441 years, and it began after the banishment of Morgoth, the dark lord before Sauron. There’s a lot of story potential in that time, including the rise of Sauron, the creation of the One Ring, and the emergence of the Ringwraiths.

Amazon’s map also includes Númenor, an island kingdom of men that was lost beneath the sea to a cataclysm. In Tolkien’s mythos, Sauron was captured by the king of Númenor, but he slowly corrupted the kingdom from within. Only the intervention of the deity, Eru, prevented Sauron’s plans and led to the destruction of Númenor.

Production has yet to begin for Amazon’s Lord of the Rings series, but is expected to premiere in 2021.
