  • Amazon is turning The Lord of the Rings into a TV show

    Earlier this month, news broke that Amazon was trying to close a deal to bring J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings to life as a television series, and now it looks like it’s actually going to happen. Amazon has announced that it has acquired the TV rights for the book series, with a multi-season commitment. But the twist is that this will apparently be a prequel to The Lord of the Rings, rather than the story audiences already know so well.
    'But I don't want to go among mad people,' Alice remarked. 'Oh, you can't help that,' said the Cat: 'we're all mad here.'

    The Order of the Dice... OF DOOM!

    So we're getting the Silmarillion?
    You're rational, sir. It's only us crazy people who get to swap out realities on a whim.

      I predict its a Gardening show by Sam Gamgee.
