Amazon Studios has announced an upcoming, Lord of the Rings Prequel TV series, headed by none other than themselves. The first step has been done, and the rights for Lord of the Rings has been purchased.
The Amazon Prime Original series will be based of the wonderful J.R.R. Tolkien’s epic fantasy.
“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,” said a representative for the Tolkien Estate, Matt Galsor.
It has been a few intense weeks, with both Amazon and Netflix fighting over the right of this lore. There is no doubt that both heads are equally worthy of leading this project, but this is also a huge step forward for Amazon Studios.
This unexplored series will be the first of its line, and fans have been waiting a long time for a prequel story. Hopefully Amazon Studios will do us all proud and provide a masterpiece.
Keep in mind, now that Amazon Studios has been given the rights, this series will only be available to stream on Amazon Prime.
As for now, no release dates has been announced, but stay tuned for updates!
