In effetti mi ero dimenticato che esisteva questa serie. Con la ruota del tempo Amazon ci sta dando dentro con il fantasy
https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/tv...st-1234976309/Amazon’s Lord of the Rings live-action TV series has finally wrapped casting on season one.
The big-budget series, which first began production in early 2020, has added Charles Edwards (The Crown), Will Fletcher (The Girl Who Fell), newcomers Amelie Child-Villiers (The Machine) and Beau Cassidy to its sprawling cast. The series, which is estimated to already cost $465 million for its first season alone, clocks in with an ensemble cast of 39.
Amazon’s LOTR will explore new storylines preceding Tolkien’s The Fellowship of the Ring. The series explores the heroic legends of the fabled Second Age of Middle-earth’s history. The epic drama is set thousands of years before the events of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. Beginning in a time of relative peace, the series follows an ensemble cast of characters, both familiar and new, as they confront the long-feared re-emergence of evil to Middle-earth. From the darkest depths of the Misty Mountains, to the majestic forests of the elf-capital of Lindon, to the breathtaking island kingdom of Númenor, to the furthest reaches of the map, these kingdoms and characters will carve out legacies that live on long after they are gone.
A premiere date for LOTR has not yet been determined. Pre-pandemic, Amazon Studios head Jennifer Salke told The Hollywood Reporter that the “hope” was that LOTR will be on the air in 2021. As part of the LOTR deal, the show must be in production within two years of the original pact. It’s unclear if the production delays prompted by the pandemic will impact the show’s timeline. Sources tell THR that the latest expectation is for LOTR to launch in early 2022, though a late 2021 debut could be possible depending on production hurdles related to the pandemic.
