Amazon's Lord of the Rings Series to Revolve Around Young Aragorn

He is Isildur's heir, not Isildur himself and he may be the focal point for one of the most expensive TV series of all-time.  More within...

 

Much about Amazon's mega-deal with the Tolkien estate for a Lord of the Rings series has been under wraps, but recently we've discovered that this series is already greenlit for a 5 season run and that the total production cost for the first two seasons will be about $500 million.  With Amazon shelling out that kind of dough, it makes sense that they would want the series they've invested a lot into to focus on a character most of the fans know and love.

That's why the report from TheOneRing.net makes so much sense.  The reputable source for all things Middle-earth is reporting that Amazon's Lord of the Rings series will focus around a Young Aragorn.

While Amazon declined to comment on the report, it's hard to think that this isn't true.  As previously stated, Amazon is sinking a lot into this series and a character like Aragorn can bring in a bigger audience than an original or even innoculous character no one knows.  Plus, before Aragorn finished the trilogy by taking his place as the one-true king of Gondor, he lived the life of a ranger and went by the pseudo-name Strider.  Not to mention, his relationship with Arwin was already established by the time the fellowship roled into Rivendell.  So, there is a lot to unpack with this singular character and his adventures could be worthy of the $500 million production price tag.

We'll be keeping our eyes peeled for more news about this much-anticipated Lord of the Rings series from Amazon.  When news breaks, we'll have it here!
