Ladies and Gentleman, we have the island of Númenor!
LOTRonPrime tweeted earlier today an update to their interactive Middle-earth map … and a confirmation that the series will, in some way, reference the Second Age.
With the inclusion of Númenor, and the news that we will be seeing a young Aragorn and his adventures, could this mean we are going to see a Dúnedain origin story with flashbacks to the Númenóreans? That would be simply brilliant! 🙂
Not only that, but the map clearly indicates Tol Morwen, Tol Fuin and Himling, which – to anyone who has read The Silmarillion out there – will know their histories.
This is getting more and more impressive, and it seems we’re getting a series that will delve into way more backstory, and deeper into the past of Middle-earth than I think any of us could have imagined.
Exciting times ahead!
