Young Aragorn to be featured in Amazon Lord of the Rings series?

  • Amazon will reportedly focus on Aragorn for at least the first season of their Lord of the Rings TV series

Reportedly, creator of the Lord of the Rings films and New Zealand national hero Peter Jackson had wanted to shoehorn Aragorn into his The Hobbit trilogy, in much the same way as those films included Orlando Bloom's Legolas and for much the same reasons - because film companies like familiar names and faces. At least, that's the rumor floating around.

Given its Balrog-sized price tag and huge levels of expectation, everyone has been wondering what time period and characters the Amazon-backed, Tolkien-based TV series might tackle. Now, we might finally have some sort of idea regarding the story.

According to the site, they have heard from multiple sources now that Amazon's first Lord of the Rings series will be a young Aragorn focus. In his youth, Aragorn was unaware of his lineage, and only discovered the truth when he was older.

The show will be drawing inspiration not just from the Lord of the Rings, but also the many appendices that were published to tie into Tolkien's books. Amazon is committing a billion dollars to acquiring the rights to Tolkien's masterpiece and five seasons of the show Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos will be a genre-defining series to rival Game of Thrones. The hope for the series is to turn it into Amazon's Game of Thrones, and lord knows there's plenty of material to draw from. In fact, the first season could possibly take place right in Rivendell and follow young Aragorn from there. Could this imply the additional seasons will focus on different characters? Of course, this is all speculation.

Keep in mind that none of this is confirmed, and while TheOneRing.net is perhaps the best LOTR fan site out there, it is not an official source for news regarding the Amazon series (the site also recently reported that Peter Jackson was mulling a return to Middle-earth either as a director or producer on the show).
