A tweet from the trusted and fan vetted @TheOneRingNet yesterday revealed that they had discovered through multiple sources that the upcoming Amazon Lord of the Rings series first season would focus on Aragorn before the events of The Fellowship of the Ring. Amazon hasn’t made any statement denying or supporting these claims so no word on if it’s 100% true but it does look to be pretty credible.
The going rumor before this was that the series would focus on the War for the Ring, which would explain why the series will cost over a billion dollars to produce, but with this news, I wonder how much of that money is going towards licensing and how much else is going to production. The wording of “first season” has me suspecting that each season will be focusing on a different character, which could be nice to see an expansion on the major players, but there is also some enjoyment out of not having every character have their full biography laid out for you. ahem Solo ahock. Excuse me, had something in my throat.
