Okay, well not really FORGED, but it sounds cool, right?
But yes, Amazon is dropping A BILLION DOLLARS on a Lord of the Rings TV show!
Here’s what Amazon has to say about it-
“[It] brings to screens for the very first time the heroic legends of the fabled Second Age of Middle-earth’s history . . . thousands of years before the events of ‘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 furthest reaches of the map, these kingdoms and characters will carve out legacies that live on long after they are gone.”
Currently, there is no confirmed release date, but it’s possible this may debut in 2022.
