After the announcement of the start of work on the Lord of the Rings series based on Amazon’s work of the same name, the fan community got excited and, as it turned out, not in vain. The first images presented for the show disappointed fans of the work, causing a lot of controversy and dissatisfaction. However, there was positive news.
A new #LordOfTheRings original anime feature titled “The Lord of the Rings: The War of the Rohirrim” is set for release in April 2024.

Warner Brothers studio announced the development of a full-length animated film, which will take place 260 years before the events are already shown in the trilogy of Peter Jackson. Representatives of the studio said that their project will be without nods to modern trends of tolerance, and the people who worked on the original trilogy have been brought in to work on the animated picture. The release date for the anime Lord of the Rings: The War of the Rohirrim is set for April 12, 2024.
What do you think, is it worth filming a sequel, and what should be in it?
The project, which is preparing for release, is a prequel to the trilogy of Tolkien’s books and the films made on them. Directed by Kenji Kamiyama, known for his Ghost in the Shell and the Blade Runner anime. The new adaptation will be about Rohan Helm. It is a character from Tolkien’s Legendarium. The man was one of the kings of Rohan. He was nicknamed Molotorky for his extraordinary physical strength. Because of his rude refusal to marry his daughter to the king of Dunland, as well as the accumulation of grievances, representatives of the steppe state attacked Rohan, forcing Helman to withdraw into a blind defense and build a huge fortress in the swamps, which marked the beginning of the liberation war of the invaded state. These events are the story of the upcoming animated film, whose release date will be April 12, 2024.
In addition to Kenji Kamiyama, who is directing the project, the development involved Philip Boyensu, scriptwriter for all parts of the film, John Howe, the official illustrator of the works and concept art designer for the trilogy of Peter Jackson, Richard Taylor, who was responsible for costume design and visual effects in the original adaptation. Given the classic cast of directors and the art presented, viewers are waiting for work with the “correct” interpretation of events, which was announced by Warner Brothers. Release date of the anime Lord of the Rings: The War of the Rohirrim is expected on April 12, 2024. Separately, the authors stressed that their work has no connection with the upcoming Amazon series and is a completely independent work, which will show viewers an incredible epic battle and will be unlike anything shown before. Its release date is April 12, 2024.
