Kia Ora.

In its quest to launch a hit fantasy series of the Game of Thrones caliber, Amazon has closed a massive deal with the Tolkien Estate. It cost them around $250 million to acquire global TV rights to The Lord of the Rings, based on the fantasy novels by J.R.R. Tolkien. The streaming service has given a multi-season commitment to a LOTR series and a potential spinoff series as part of the deal. It is predicted that production costs will be in excess $100 million per season.

The LOTR original series, a prequel to The Fellowship of the Ring, will be produced by Amazon Studios in cooperation with the Tolkien Estate and Trust, HarperCollins and New Line Cinema (who produced the hugely successful LOTR movies). So our favourite saga will be in good hands.

It is going to be soooooo cooooool!
