Wasn’t really sure where else to put this. It probably needs a new thread....but apparently Amazon has purchased the TV rights to LOTR and will be making a multi-season prequel.

Not really sure how to feel about this right now.

There are a lot of great stories worth mining. Also they know they have a built-in audience that is theirs to lose...

There's so much more to the story in Tolkien's original stories, plus The Simillarion. I am looking forward to the Amazon show.
