Amazon has confirmed that its media branch, Amazon TV, has secured the rights to produce a new series based on the Lord of the Rings fantasy novels.
The new series will reportedly focus on brand new storylines that will likely precede the events portrayed on The Fellowship of the Ring.
First published in 1954, The Lord of the Rings has been adapted to TV and cinema more than once, and profitably so. Peter Jackson’s trilogy reportedly earned almost $3bn worldwide, for instance.
The Lord of the Rings’ rich imagery is a fertile ground where script writers can find the inspiration to deliver enticing new epics based on the Middle Earth universe.
