The most expensive Lord of the Rings series ever

The Lord of the Rings is a three volume novel by the writer JRR Tolkien. Adapted again and again to movies, role-playing games and of course video games, none of this will stop anytime soon and therefore a new television series will emerge. Hollywood Reporter, an American magazine, has presented the huge budget that is being made available for the first season of the series “The Lord of the Rings”. It’s no less than $ 465 million released by Amazon Studios overseeing the production of all of this.

A budget that exceeds the latest blockbusters

To give you an idea, the sixth season of the Game of Thrones franchise cost no more than $ 100 million. It’s also the cost of Season 1 of Disney’s The Mandalorian. Five seasons are planned for The Lord of the Rings. The narrative is expected to set its framework in the second age when Sauron comes to power. The release date has not yet been announced, but the project seems to be doing quite well despite some delays due to the current pandemic, unlike the MMORPG The Lord of the Rings, which was just canceled when it was in full development.
