Lord of the Rings/Hobbit One Ring

Earlier this month it was reported that Amazon was in talks with Warner Bros. Television and the estate of author J.R.R. Tolkien for the rights to adapt The Lord of the Rings into a TV series.

As it turns out, things were farther along than we thought. Amazon has confirmed that they have now reached a deal, and are officially committed to not just one single season of a Lord of the Rings TV series, but a multi-season adaptation of the timeless fantasy books Tolkien penned. But it won’t just be a new take on the story we saw play out in Peter Jackson’s movie trilogy. Instead, the series will focus on new storylines which take place before the events of The Fellowship of the Ring. And there’s even an added bonus to the deal that could mean an eventual spinoff series as well.

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring

Rejoice, fantasy fans! When the final season of Game of Thrones comes to a close, we no longer have to be devastated about it. OK—we don’t have to be devastated for too long, anyway. Let’s be honest, I weep at least once a week just thinking about it. But I swallow a pint of Ben & Jerry’s like it’s an Advil, and move on with my day. Like a responsible adult. Other networks would sacrifice anything adorable you can think of to have what HBO has in Thrones, but instead of finding that next untapped book series to adapt into a hit, one big name is looking to an old classic: The Lord of the Rings.

Amazon Studios has entered into negotiations with Warner Brothers Television and author J.R.R. Tolkien‘s estate in hopes of developing a TV series based on Tolkien’s legendary story.

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring

If you’re a fan of movies, chances are you’re a fan of movie scores. But while the music of a film can elicit emotions and enhance our experience viewing it and overall appreciation of it, sometimes there’s so much more going on in those compositions than most of us ever realize.

With an example of this, YouTube user The Nerdwriter has released a new video exploring composer Howard Shore‘s work on Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings trilogy, and how his music actually elevated the already stellar story it told.

Peter Jackson On The Set Of The Hobbit

What happens when a geek finds themselves abundantly wealthy? They purchase massive homes and add lots and lots of amazing stuff to them. We’ve seen it with Guillermo del Toro’s Bleak House, and now we have another example with The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies director Peter Jackson‘s 1930s mansion in New Zealand.

Jackson has had all sorts of cool stuff built to make his home unique, but perhaps most notably is the addition of an exact replica of Bilbo Baggins’ Hobbit house, Bag End. And better yet, Jackson had it built underground, behind secret doors.

Billy Boyd "The Last Goodbye" from The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

Last month we found out that Billy Boyd, who starred as Pippin in Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings trilogy and sang a memorable song in the third movie, The Return of the King, would be singing the end credits song for the final movie in Jackson’s Hobbit trilogy, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.

The song is titled “The Last Goodbye,” and not only can you listen to it right now but there’s an official video for it as well you can watch below. The video is all about giving fans the warm fuzzies, as footage of Boyd singing is mixed with clips from both trilogies and behind the scenes footage of the actors having a merry old time on the set.

Billy Boyd Sings "Edge of Night" In Lord of The Rings

There’s a wealth of memorable moments to be found within Peter Jackson’s massive Lord of the Rings trilogy. One of these moments comes in the third and final movie, The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King, when hobbit Pippin (Billy Boyd) is ordered to sing a song for the Steward of Gondor, Denethor (John Noble), to whom he volunteered his service. As Pippin sings his sad song, titled “The Edge of Night,” Denethor feasts away carelessly while his son Faramir (David Wenham) and his soldiers, who were sent into an impossible battle by the Steward, are met with waves of orcish arrows.

If you too are fond of this scene and Pippin’s song, depressing as it is, there’s some good news to be had today. It’s been announced that Billy Boyd will be semi-returning to Middle-earth by recording the end credits song for the third and final movie in The Hobbit trilogy, titled The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.

You can read more and check out Boyd singing “Edge of Night” in Return of the King below if you don’t remember it or just want to see it again.
