Eager to return to Middle Earth? We tell you everything we know so far about the Lord of the Rings series that Amazon Studios is developing.
The Lord of the Rings series prepared by Amazon Prime Video has been affected by the closure and subsequent security measures derived from the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19). The ambitious world-set series project created by JRR Tolkien is being filmed in New Zealand, one of the countries that are better dealing with the crisis.
It is a strong bet on the part of the platform, which disbursed only a whopping 250 million dollars in the rights of the series and manages an astronomical budget.
We already have an official synopsis and the cast has been announced. The series will take place during the Second Age, thousands of years before the unique ring fell into the hands of Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit and was thrown into the fires of Mount Doom in Mordor by Frodo. This does not mean that evil looms over Middle-earth in this legendary age of JRR Tolkien’s tales.
