Almost two years after Amazon announced plans to adapt The Lord of the Rings into a TV series, they have finally confirmed the director of the first two episodes.
Here’s the first trailer for the forthcoming film about JRR Tolkien.
It might be almost 20 year’s since Peter Jackson first took us to Middle Earth with The Fellowship of the Ring, but it seems the entertainment world still can’t get enough of Professor Tolkien’s classic tale.
We know Amazon is busy working on a new small-screen series based on the Rings mythology, and now it’s been revealed a new online game is coming too.
A new book that allows you to colour in everything from Gollum, the Balrog to the Pelennor Fields will be released in June.
Sir Ian McKellen has signed a deal to write his autobiography.
Billy Boyd’s been discussing his song for the final Hobbit film.
The actor, best known for playing Pippin in Lord of the Rings, has recorded The Last Goodbye for the closing credits of The Battle of the Five Armies.
“We focused on not just the final instalment, but moreso on this 10-year epic adventure,” says Boyd.
“A song to sum up the six movies. We recorded in Wellington, New Zealand, at one point traveling to Auckland to Neil Finn’s studio — where we recorded some of the guitar”.

I’m not ashamed to say it brought a tear to my eye.
