It should be clear to everyone that Amazon’s new “Lord Of The Rings” series is a huge project. But little by little, more and more details became known, which also allowed the extent of the plot to shine through. Another character from the movies will play a big role in the series.
Amazon Prime Video is planning five seasons of the “Lord of the Rings” series. $1 billion is planned for this season, the first season needs nearly half of the entire budget. Filming in New Zealand has been going on for months and there doesn’t seem to be an end in sight. The series is going to be a spectacle, that’s for sure. After all, it should be the prestigious new Amazon Prime Video project.
It’s still not entirely clear at what age the series actually takes place. The saga “The Lord of the Rings” written by Tolkien is very extensive and takes place over thousands of years. So far, the only thing that’s really clear about the upcoming series is that it was set long before the cinema trilogy.
As different actors want you to know, another character from the movies also appears in the series. Isildur, who was seen briefly in films in a flashback, knocking a ring, including a finger, from Sauron’s hand, will play a major role in the upcoming series.
Since Isildur lived at the end of the Second Age, this severely limits the scope of the series if the rumor turns out to be true. Such an extensive series can still tell several stories of different ages at the same time.
What exactly awaits us in the series “The Lord of the Rings”, we will find out in September 2022 at the latest, when Amazon Prime Video begins.
