    Just saw this article about Elijah Wood talking about Amazon's Lord of the Rings series, which is set a thousand or so years earlier than the main story. At the bottom, it mentioned that production for this show has just been cleared to resume in New Zealand, now that COVID-19 cases have slowed there.

    I don't think we've talked much about this series on here. If they're actively doing production in New Zealand then they may be further ahead than I thought they were. As I understand it, production involves actually rolling cameras.

    Anybody excited for this show?
    I'm looking forward to it. I'm not a Lord of The Rings expert, but I loved the movies and am currently re-reading the first book to coincide with my Walk To Mordor challenge. (After that I'll be reading books 2 and 3 for the first time Embarassed )

    I understand the decision to set the show in a previous age of Middle Earth was dictated by the Tolkien Estate, rather than being a purely creative decision, but I think it makes good sense. Why reboot the movies when they were so succesful. especially when there's plenty more material to draw on. I don't think it's ever been stated that this show officially falls within the same continuity as the movies, but I'd like to hope we can at least view it that way.

    I'm 100% behind this. In fact I hope they feel more creative freedom as a result. I'd even be more interested in original stories that take place within the lore/world of middle earth than in attempts to adapt existing stories.
