    We and the good lore masters from this halls should take charge of such a task instead!. A new genesis is at hand, and we must be the creators! :D

    I'm really suprised they chose the second age and the Tolkien estate agreed. There is so little original work about the second age, are they just gonna make it up as they go? Or are there stories of the second age I haven't read about beyond the mariner's wife and the fall on Numenor?

    I'm pretty sure they are going to have to make things up, it's inevitable. I hope it's good.

    I hope they change their mind in the future and don't keep themselves from using other locations if possible. Probably more CGI than ever but with that kind of money it might push boundaries far. But is till prefer to see real wear on structures etc... and not so many green screen scenes. The moment i start seeing textures that look too shiny or too perfect me no likes, and the green screen just makes everything look weird sometimes idk.

    The reason is probably because the Tolkien estate wants to keep the Silmarillion to themselves. Given that a fair amount of the second age is covered in the Lord of the Rings appendices they can make a show about old middle earth without the Silmarillion. The Lord of the Rings appendices actually covers both Melkor, Luthien and the silmarils so here is hoping we get to see some of it if only in prologue.
