The Lord of the Rings: new films of the saga are announced

This Wednesday (23), The Hollywood Reporter published a report announcing the production of new films in the franchise of Lord of the Rings.

According to the American magazine, Warner Bros and New Line entered into an agreement with Embracer Group AB, which owns all adaptation rights related to the universe of JRR Tolkien.

It is worth remembering that the films will have nothing to do with The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Powera Prime Video series released in 2022. The agreement that Amazon has is completely focused on television productions, while that of Warner and New Line is for film productions.

“Twenty years ago, New Line took an unprecedented leap of faith to create these amazing stories, characters and worlds. Lord of the Rings on the big screen. […] But even with all the scope and detail worked into the two trilogies, the vast, complete and breathtaking universe created by JRR Tolkien remains largely unexplored on the big screen.”
