    I agree to a certain degree.
    "If they think they can make more money, then they will." This for me is true and actually quite sad, nowadays everything's that make money has to be milked down (star wars, fantastic beast ect..).

    And at the same time I would really like a serie based on the Silmarillon, so many stories to be played and in this kind of format it would be easier. But I still have my fair share of doubt. (sorry for my English as I'm still Learning and trying to improve)

    Welcome Eebounnie! Your English is actually pretty good!

    I agree with the money part, all it seems to be after CJRT left is a soulless crash grab.


    Hoping for the best.

    His comments suggest he was thinking it was going to be a remake, rather than the original stories it now appears to be. In which case, I guess I'd feel a bit insulted too, if I'd been in PJ's version.

    As for whatever comes out of the project, I'm keeping the old fingers crossed, but also keeping this as "theme-song":

    Ummm...Bree, where else?
    Haha, that's so "precious", being mad at Amazon.
    "It’s not about doing it better, it’s about making more money, that’s all...."
    Jackson certainly didn't do the movies for the love of the story.
    Were the LoTR games he did voices for freeware?
