The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power – when is the release date?
Amazon, the new owner of the film rights to John Tolkien’s novels, has announced the release date of the Lord of the Rings series Rings of Power, which is scheduled for September 2, 2022. The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power television series is to be a multi-season project with a budget that can only be compared to the legendary Game of Thrones saga.
The television adaptation will include new storylines that predate the first “Fellowship of the Ring” book. Netflix, HBO, and Amazon competed for global rights to make the multi-season series, but only the latter company was willing to shell out $250 million.
What do you think, is it worth filming a sequel, and what should be in it?
Amazon Prime Studios has already announced the release date for Episode 1 of The Lord of the Rings: Rings of Power. The first series will premiere on September 2, 2022.
Сюжет фэнтези-сериала переместит нас в далекое прошлое, где еще не было Саурона или Мелькора. The first season will begin with a sweet life in Middle-earth before evil infiltrated the Shire. “Amazon is going to make a prequel to the classic Frodo Baggins story, with plenty of opportunities to create their characters and conquer the world. The company has restrictions on some characters in the acquired rights (it won’t be able to use all of them), but filmmakers will always be able to create their own characters, plus add the scenes of violence, sex, and soap opera that made the “Game of Thrones” series so popular.
Filming of the first season won’t begin until the summer of 2019, so the “Lord of the Rings” series should be expected to be released in September 2022. The release date for the first series is expected to be September 2, 2022. The new owners of the trilogy still need to write the story before then and cast the actors for the main roles. As soon as the names of the key characters are known, we will post them on this page.
The television series The Lord of the Rings will not differ much from the original novels, and rumor has it that the book “The Silmarillion” will be taken as the literary basis. Whether this is true or not we don’t know, but the fact that the Ring of Sauron, or the Ring of All Power, will be the center of attention is a fact. Whether the series will live up to its expectations, we’ll know after the release date of the 1st series.
The Lord of the Rings could be a big, expensive and prestigious show that will bring success to Amazon. But it may not, for a variety of reasons. First, no one likes adaptations of legendary movies that will reimagine the plot and add new details to an already well-screened world.
In response to this project, Showtime television is preparing to film the series The Kingkiller Chronicles, due out in the fall of 2018. The most disturbing of all is the news that the new series will not be based on what John Tolkien wrote. The Lord of the Rings series, with a release date of September 2022, will be a prequel throwback to the canon to explore the events between The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.
The events are so boring that Tolkien didn’t bother with them on paper. Even if Amazon spared no expense and could create a meaningful story from this, there is no guarantee it would turn out well. Game of Thrones went horribly off the rails as soon as it let the books go and followed a different script. And don’t forget the completely unnecessary third Hobbit movie, which stretched three pages of the novel into a movie about two and a half hours long.
Realistically, the best thing a studio can do is not disappoint people. The worst thing it can do is get rid of the franchise for good. That seems like too much of a gamble, especially for a company that makes most of its money delivering cat food.
