[BREAKING] We have confirmed from multiple sources that @AmazonStudios new billion-dollar #LOTR series will open its first season centered on a young Aragorn.— TheOneRing.net (@theoneringnet) May 16, 2018
Let's discuss whats available and how this opens up Tolkien's Legendarium. A thread. #Tolkien
Reliable fan site TheOneRing.net has confirmed with multiple sources that the first season of Amazon's billion-dollar Lord of the Rings series will focus on a young Aragorn (aka Estel, Thorongil, Strider, etc). It will not retread the War of the Ring, but rather stories in the Appendices.
Given the timeline, it's unlikely Viggo Mortensen will reprise his iconic role.
The show will have at least five seasons, so the specification that it's the first season that follows Aragorn's youthful adventures suggests an anthology-style series.
Who do you want to see as young Aragorn?
