Amazon’s New Lord of the Rings Series

Information has been dropped on the new Amazon series based off of J.R.R. Tolkien‘s signature fantasy novels, “The Lord of the Rings“. With one of the most inspirational western fantasy worlds coming to the small screen, people are excited to see a story that can never grow old. The new series will also be gaining the director of “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom” and “The Queen of Spain“, J.A. Bayona.

Set in the wonderful and beautiful world of Middle Earth, this new series based on the classic books of the same name will be set before the events that happened in “Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring“.

Now, if you are fan of the Lord of the Rings series, that may trigger some excitement. The Second Age begins after the banishment of the evilest of villains within Middle Earth, Morgoth (think of him as sort of the devil or evil god of Middle Earth). The Second Age, within the novels, follows the rise to power by Sauron and the creation of the “One Ring to Rule Them All”. So it is very safe to say that this show will also follow the same path.

The first two episodes of the Amazon series will be directed by J.A. Bayona. He has expressed a certain excitement in this project and has spoken about the privilege to work in the world that has inspired so many western fantasy writers.
