    New map updates today show off Numenor and then Amazon tweeted to confirm this show will be in the Second Age. Will update the OP soon it's just been busy at work today.

    Not sure if it's been posted by anyone but the official website lets you explore the map and zoom in as well: https://www.amazon.com/adlp/lotronprime

    Edit: nvm, Varking is one step ahead of me. His OP has the link in it :)

    Now we're talking. So, are they relying entirely on the Appendix?. Do they have rights to more material now?. Honestly, to be like: "oh we can use this but we can't use that" must be a pain in the neck. Anyway, this is wonderful magnificent frikking news.

    That and I guess they could be using material from the Silmarillion as well if it's Second Age, no?

    If that's the case, not only this show just got a billion times more interesting, but it also means we're going to see the legends of the elder days in the future...Moringotho Bauglaro is coming.

    There were many different episode directors for GOT. Idk he might direct the ones that are located in NZ, or some of them. It's possible that he might just be producer or be in charge of screen play for some scenes or entire episodes.

    Oh hell no, just cancel it now for that matter. I don't need PJ to ruin the Second Age for me too.

    How many times do we have to curse JRR's body and cause it to roll another 20 years.

    If he is involved in any way, minute or not, I am NOT watching.

    To be honest I am quite looking forward to this series, and though no film could encompass the vastness of Tolkien's works, to me it is plain and simple storytelling, no matter the form of media. It is how the stories survive in this age.

    Amazon seems to be catering to lore nerds like myself first and foremost right now. These aren't sexy updates to somebody who doesn't know what these places and what different ages are. Because of this I have hope that the show will be well respected and taken care of by Amazon when it comes to storytelling.

    One can only hope that this series will have good writing and directing. Being the way TV show work, I wouls suspect that Peter Jackson may be involved in a few episodes, and his 'creative license' impact will be minimal. I guess more to the point will be whoever has the reigns of overall production. I read on another site that there may be more to the deal with the Tolkien Estate where Amazon bought the rights. Up to now, everything produced relating to Lord of the Rings has been based on the original rights deals J.R.R. Tolkien himself. Despite Christopher Tolkien being against any 'film' rights after his opposition to the Peter Jackson movies, his children Simon, Adam, and Rachael, along with the rest of the board of directors of the Tolkien Estate, convinced him that it would happen eventually and he ceded some rights to more material in exchange for some assurances from Amazon not to do a 'Peter Jackson' with storyline changes. As he released The Fall of Gondolin, he decided that he would retire as director of the Tolkien estate and let things take its course.

    Or better yet: No sound at all on the premises or 1000 feet from it!
