In recent months, the proliferation of character montages of some of our film sagas and our favorite series generated by AI have provoked numerous reactions among those who have fun with these curious versions and those who classify them as aberrations, among whom we find filmmakers like Tim Burton or Wes Anderson.
One of the franchises that is receiving the most productions has been The Lord of the ringswhich recently had versions in the style of Pixar or Wes Anderson, now has a new one in which the characters of Middle Earth seem to have spent many hours in the gym.
The Tolkien House fan account has shared on its social networks a new montage made through AI Art Generator. This software has made us find ourselves before the most muscular version of some of the characters from the Lord of the Rings franchise, among which we find Gandalf (Ian Mckellen), Legolas (Orlando Bloom), Aragorn (Viggo Mortensen), Frodo (Elijah Wood) and Boromir (Sean Bean).
‘The Lord of the Rings’ and its animated versions
This montage amused so much some Instagram users who requested as many versions of characters like Gimli, Sam or Gollum. A lot of jokes about some characters fresh out of the gym, where the snapshots reminded us more of WWE players than of the Fellowship of the Ring.
We don’t know if the new animated film in the franchise will dare to use such brutalized versions of its protagonists. Soon we will finally be able to enjoy The Rohirrim Warproduced by Warner Bros., which will show us the locations of Arda in a very different way than the ones we are used to, after the Japanese anime filmmaker Kenji Kamiyama (ultraman, Star Wars: Visions) has sat in the director’s chair.
This film will follow in the wake of the animated film The Lord of the rings released in 1978 and directed by Ralph Bakshi, as well as the television specials The Hobbit (1977) and The return of the king (1980), both created by the Rankin/Bass production company.
