According to various media sources, the deal has been struck, and Amazon has green-lit a multi-season adaptation set in Middle-earth. The news also confirms that the deal was struck with the Tolkien Estate.
There is no confirmation yet which stories will be adapted, but it has been confirmed that this will NOT involve any events set during the War of the Ring, but rather precede events in The Fellowship of the Ring.
As already speculated in my previous post, we’re looking at a possible glimpse into that 70-year gap between The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings; that means an array of narratives such as the Tale of Aragorn and Arwen, Strider’s Journeys, the History of Durin’s Folk, Eorl the Young … It’s all there people.
