The famed creatures from J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings will be featured in a TV series, as Amazon announced a multi-season production commitment Monday. Amazon says it will bring "The Lord of the Rings" to the small screen.
Tolkien did write many stories of Middle Earth that take place in eras prior to the adventures of Frodo, Sam, and the fellowship. The Lord of the Rings film trilogy earned almost $6 billion worldwide, and picked up a combined 17 Academy Awards, including Best Picture for The Return of the King. The original trilogy starred Elijah Wood, Ian McKellen, Liv Tyler, Sean Bean, Viggo Mortensen, Sean Astin, Cate Blanchett, Orlando Bloom-no word yet if any of the original cast will be asked to be in the Amazon series. Their head of scripted series, Sharon Tal Ygyando, said: "The Lord of the Rings is a cultural phenomenon that has captured the imagination of generations of fans through literature and the big screen".
The Lord of the Rings series will be a co-production between Amazon Studios, New Line Cinema, HarperCollins, and the Tolkien Estate and Trust.
