  • 0

Lord of the Rings star Orlando Bloom is sounding off on Amazon Prime Video’s uber-expensive TV collection set in Center-earth.

The streamer has spent unprecedented quantities of money securing the rights to creator JRR Tolkien’s LOTR in an effort to create an unique drama collection, to happen in the course of the under-explored Second Age of Center-earth.

Amazon is just not remaking Sir Peter Jackson’s Academy Award-winning movie trilogy, which is exactly why Bloom – who performed Legolas in these films – was excited to talk to one of many TV present’s producers lately.

“I had a couple of questions for him to start with… after which I used to be like, ‘You realize, I needn’t know any extra’,” he advised Collider. “It isn’t, clearly, it is not a remake. It is truly not based mostly on The Fellowship or any of that. So, I feel it might be actually, actually fascinating from that perspective.”

The actor went on: “I bear in mind being on set with Peter Jackson and him saying, ‘Are you able to think about the day once they do a remake of this film?’ And I used to be like [shocked]. After which in fact right here we’re, 20 years later… but it surely’s not a remake.

The Lord of the Rings is a title for a world. However I feel it will be fascinating from that perspective – as a result of if it was a remake I might be like, ‘Are you going to take us again into Hobbiton?’ It was such an informative time, it had such an impression, so it is completely different what’s coming and I feel that is a superb factor.”

Bloom added that he intends to observe the Lord of the Rings present, or “fan it up” – as he put it.

“They definitely paid a reasonably penny to get it executed, to get the rights to try this,” he identified. “Little doubt there’s a lot driving there on that.”

His LOTR co-star Elijah Wooden has additionally supported the collection, even displaying curiosity in reprising his position as Frodo Baggins if the chance arises.

“If there was a world the place that made sense and was natural to what they’re doing, then sure [I would],” he advised Indiewire. “Look, any excuse to get to go to New Zealand to work on one thing I’m completely there.”

Lord of the Rings will air on Amazon Prime Video, with no confirmed launch date but.
