Breaking down the latest rumors
Fan resource TheOneRing.net has received an announcement about additional recruitment in the cast of the series “Lord of the Rings”, which is currently working on the team streaming service Amazon Prime. As explained by the portal We Got This Covered, this resource has repeatedly reported information about the status of the project, which was later confirmed. Therefore, it makes no sense not to trust this source.

It seems that these claims were by no means unsubstantiated. A fan resource TheOneRing.net, citing sources close to the production of the series, said that the cast of the project is now looking for people who “would be comfortable to be filmed naked. That is, following the logic of “Game of Thrones”, in which nudity and sex scenes were commonplace, the same thing can wait for us in the series “Lord of the Rings. Another question is whether the audience needs it?

Filming of the series “Lord of the Rings” began in February 2020, and then in Australia and New Zealand declared quarantine – because of the coronavirus pandemic. The work was resumed at the end of June. It is known that the first season of the series will be the prequel of “The Hobbit” and “The Lord of the Rings” – its events will unfold in a period of time called by Tolkin “Second Era”, which covered almost 3.5 thousand years. This epoch began with the exile of Valar (God), the first Dark Lord Melkor (also known as Morgot Bouglir, the embodiment of the Dark). The end of the “Second Age” marks the victory of the Last Alliance of Elves and Men over Sauron – the moment when one of the kings of men, Isildur, cuts off his finger and takes away the Ring of Power. It was at the time of the formation of Sauron that the island of Numenor existed – so fans suggested that the events of the first season will unfold into the “Second Era”.

In autumn 2017, Amazon Prime announced the purchase of the rights to the series based on “Lord of the Rings” – the most famous work of John Ronald Ruel Tolkin. One of the conditions of the multimillion dollar contract (rumor has it that the rights cost $250 million), signed by Tolkien Estate and Amazon, is the requirement to start shooting not later than two years. According to the head of Amazon Studios Jennifer Salke, the premiere of the series can be expected in 2021. Despite the forced break in filming, there is a chance that the first season will be released on time.
