    Interesting, the East of Middle-earth is shown...we know Aragorn journeyed far into other lands when he was younger..

    That's what everyone has been pointing out so the current belief is the show has to hit those areas for sure.

    It does seem lore-accurate so far..

    They have now added text to some of the map.

    Salke also said that Tolkein's descendants are going to spend some time with Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos.

    "His daughters and the grandchildren, they're coming to New York, and Jeff Bezos, me, Jeff Blackburn, a team of us are going and they've invited us to a dinner and see some art, some creative work that they haven't shown the world yet," she said.

    They added smaller town names to the map.

    Lovely map!

    I don’t see any “smaller town names”. Am I missing them?

    I’ve never before seen the mountains east of Rhûn on any Tolkien map. What is your source (if you don’t mind my asking)?

    Do you have a version with more detail?

    The newer updated regions on the map are along the west coast and some other areas. This was pulled directly from Lort of the Rings on Prime's Facebook/Twitter/Instagram/Amazon site.

    Hi, I merged these threads and made it a sticky in this forum so we can use it to post updates to LOTR on Prime as they become available :)

    Thank you to the staff for their work on cleaning up the spam on the forums while also enabling me to add more links to the OP. As more articles and information pops up I will continue to share and add them here!

    So no more Scotland?. They'll be limiting themselves by filming everything in NZ again. Also, 1.49 billion, are you kidding me?. They can do a lot with that. I'd like episodes to be filmed in NZ but that statement "NZ is the real ME" is a bit of a stretch. There are many locations around the world they could make good use of.

    Darn it, I wanted something original and different this time.

    I smell Peter Jackson afoot.

    This already sounds bad news.

    I share your thoughts, I heard they might make use of old sets and such is that true? Still there are many other places that would be great for filming something new.

    Well, I guess I am going to have Jackson flashbacks with the films now. :mad::confused::eek:

    *Sigh* :(

    It's a shame, I would rather not see a copy of a copy and all, still there is much they have to work with that Jackson did not include in the films, so perhaps there is some hope.

    No Scotland! I had so little hope for this series when I first heard about it. Now even that small hope has dimmed. Sorry to be a grinch but just sayin'...

    Same, I have little to no interest now, as it seems they are not for any sort of creativity, just the same Jacksonian art design.

    I do not even care about it anymore. They are catering to the films audience, the casual moviegoers.

    Not us.

    Bore.

    I'm not sure but it might be cheaper and more comfortable for them to have all production in one place instead of having crews taking flights to build sets around existing structures somewhere else, which is what i prefer. In case of the former, this will likely imply higher amounts of CGI work structure wise. I'll say it's very likely filming might take place in other areas as was hinted with the whole Scotland thing. That scouting group could be just one of many others who might have been visiting other potential filming locations, who knows. Speculation OC.
