Matt Galsor, a representative for the Tolkien estate and trust, and the publisher HarperCollins, said: 'We are delighted that Amazon, with its longstanding commitment to literature, is the home of the first-ever multi-season television series for The Lord of the Rings. Sharon and the team at Amazon Studios have exceptional ideas to bring to the screen previously unexplored stories based on JRR Tolkien’s original writings.'
The news about Lord of the Rings arrived days after it was announced that Disney is working on a Star Wars TV project featuring completely new characters in different corners of the universe Star Wars has never been before. So franchise fans, no need to mourn the end of Game of Thrones – TV has never been hotter than now.
