Lord of the Rings: Stop It All, Warner Announces New Movie
Big day for fantasy fans. While Alexandre Astier has just revealed twenty posters of Kaamelott: First Part with shocking quotes, we learn that Warner Bros and New Line are preparing a movie The Lord of the Rings.
J.R.R. Tolkien fans don’t know where to turn! While we are impatiently awaiting the Lord of the Rings series from Amazon, and this despite the recent controversy about it, as well as the video game around the character of Gollum, Warner Bros. and New Line are preparing a new feature film . And this in a very particular context for the license drawn from the imagination of Tolkien, given the fact that the first part of the Peter Jackson trilogy will celebrate its twentieth anniversary this year.
Rest assured: this will not be a remake of the Jackson trilogy. The three films enjoy such popularity that relaunching it would be artistic suicide. It will be an animated film, titled The Lord of the Rings: The War of the Rohirrim, the action of which takes place 250 years before the events of The Lord of the Rings. The information was revealed by our American colleagues from Deadline.
The film will be based on a little-known episode from Middle-earth, recounted in the Appendices to The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers: The War between the Rohirrim (the people of Rohan) and the Dunlendings (the inhabitants of Dunlande ). During this battle, the Rohirrim followed their king Helm Hammerhand (Helm Poing de Marteau, in French), and found refuge in this emblematic place of Tolkien’s work, in which the great battle of the Lord of the Rings takes place: The Two Towers. , which opposed the legions of Saruman to the people of Rohan.
Directed by Kenji Kamiyama, The Lord of the Rings: The War of the Rohirrim will benefit from the expertise of Philippa Boyens, close collaborator of Peter Jackson, who worked on the writing of the two trilogies, The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit ( it was also awarded the Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay for The Return of the King).
The presence of Kenji Kamiyama also has something to intrigue strongly the fans, who can hope for an animated film inspired by Japanese animation. In addition, Kamiyama’s CV is exemplary, since he collaborated with Hayao Miyazaki on Kiki the Little Witch, Katsuhiro Otomo on Akira, worked on the City Hunter series (Nicky Larson, in French) and directed the Ghost in series. the Shell: Stand Alone Complex.
Anyway, this new project in development, in addition to demonstrating the interest that the public and the studios have for the work of JRR Tolkien, also reminds how the Appendices of the Lord of the Rings are rich in events. just waiting to be adapted to the cinema. It is recalled that part of the events of the Hobbit trilogy (in particular Gandalf’s quest for the Necromancer) is taken from the Appendices of the Return of the King. In addition, many events of the Silmarillion could be the subject of a film or television adaptation, starting with the love story between Beren and Luthien.

Oh yes !!! In addition, I think that inspired by jap animation, it can really do it! they are quite good at fantasy I think! just remember berserk, arslan senki and works of art!
I remain perplexed on the choice of the chosen animation. Personally I do not see TLOTR adapted in anim jap version but rather with features of video games like the cutscenes of WOW which corresponds to the heroic fantasy
