Season 1 of LOTR Amazon Series To Focus On Young Aragorn

After much speculation it appears as though the subject base for Season 1 of Amazon’s Lord of the Rings prequel series has been confirmed.

Aragorn

According to an exclusive report by TheOneRing.net Amazon’s biggest project will, for season 1 at least, focus on a young version of the Northern Ranger turned King of Gondor, Aragorn.

Whilst Viggo Mortensen will not be reprising his role due to the age difference of the character, Amazon have completed a deal for the rights to use footage from Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings film trilogy, so don’t be surprised to see Viggo in there somewhere.

There is yet to be any further word on whether Jackson himself has finalised a deal to return to direct the series, however recent reports did state that he was choosing between returning to Middle Earth or directing a DC Universe movie.

  1. This is gonna be a frikkin disaster there is no original material written by JRR TOLKIEN so it’s just a way of squeezing the pipe out of a classic
