You are more than welcome to add stuff here. It’s hard to keep up with everything when sharing to 3-4 sites, 2 discord’s and a subreddit while still trying to remember to eat and breath . Thanks for contributing!Hi all, mae govannen, I've been watching for a thread about this, I enjoy all the different opinions coming out of the making of this new series. (@Varking I do hope it's alright that I'm adding this, please let me know. )
I found a link, here, that gives a whole lot of information about what's going on with the series so far. The biggest/most interesting/important looking things I've seen so far are these:
"On July 3, Amazon announced that J.A. Bayona, who directed 2018's Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, is directing the first two episodes of the Lord of the Rings show."
"...the Amazon team has "exceptional ideas to bring to the screen previously unexplored stories based on J.R.R. Tolkien's original writings." THe series will be taking place in the Second Age.
"Amazon reportedly paid close to $250 million for the rights, making it the most expensive TV series ever. That doesn't, of course, include the money it'll cost to hire the actors and crew and actually make the sure-to-be-pricey show. The Hollywood Reporter speculates that the whole shebang could cost more than $1 billion."
Hope that gives more info!
