Last year Amazon gained the rights over Netflix and HBO to adapt J.R.R Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings into a TV series.
It’s now been confirmed that that Amazon are committed to making give seasons for the TV version.
According to rumours, the series won’t retell the story of the War of the Ring and will instead draw inspiration from the many appendices and notes Tolkien drafted.
The first season is reported to follow a young Aragorn.
Sir Ian McKellan who played Gandalf in Peter Jackson’s big-screen adaptation of Tolkien’s world has hinted he’d like to play the grey-robed wizard again.
The new show is rumoured to have a budget of $1 billion. This means it will be the most expensive TV series ever produced.
