And not Kings?
For shame.

#3203

Multi-season? Was three nine-hour films not enough?!


#3204

Nah, we need to see the minutae of each step they took on those mountains.


#3205

It seems to be set between Hobbit and Lord Of The Rings. Or perhaps before both? It’s not entirely clear, it just says the series ‘will explore new storylines preceding Tolkien’s The Fellowship of the Ring.’


#3206

Oh, well that’s entirely less pointless.
No joke, stuff can be done there. Just no hobbit stuff.


#3207

Good people, doing good work = good series.

I’m interested.


#3208

They don’t have any writers working on it yet, good or bad. That’s not a good sign.


#3209

They’ve only just announced that they will make the show.

But I get what you’re saying; we don’t have a direction for it yet. They’ve made a deal and now they’re looking for what actually do with the property?


#3210

More, preciouss! We gets more!


#3211

This might actually be an interesting angle.


#3212

#3213

#3214

Breaking news which might either hinder or hasten the project. Probably the latter I suspect.


#3215

Re Christopher Tolkien resignation, found out from other sites that apparently, although the news has just broken, he actually resigned in private a couple of months ago at the end of August.

I guess it is difficult not to assume then that this was a ‘clearing of the way’ type exercise of some kind.


#3216

He’s also (as the article notes) 93. If he wants to move on from the pressure to authorise more works derived from his father’s writings, a pressure that must’ve been pretty much a constant feature of his life for decades, that makes perfect sense.


#3217

While I didn’t find the comic to be anything special it’s looking like the TV series is going to be a lot of fun.


#3218

#3219

TV news because he’s documenting his trip for broadcast.

He chose not to take a satellite phone, GPS or anyone else with him.

He’s the expert explorer, not me, but I respectfully think those were not great decisions.
