Amazon says it has bought the rights to a "Lord of the Rings" prequel series.

Yguado added that it would be an honor to work with the Tolkien Estate and Trust, HarperCollins and New Line on the upcoming project and Amazon Studios is excited to take fans of the epic fantasy franchise on a new journey in Middle Earth.

No launch date or cast members for the new series was announced by Amazon.

Elijah Wood starred in the big-screen adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's book trilogy, 'The Lord of the Rings, ' which will now serve as the basis for an Amazon multi-season TV adaptation.

With its fantastical setting and characters, The Lord Of The Rings bears a superficial resemblance to HBO's Game Of Thrones, now one of the biggest shows in the world. It will be produced by Amazon Studios in cooperation with the Tolkien Estate and Trust, HarperCollins and New Line Cinema. Amazon has confirmed that they have now reached a deal, and are officially committed to not just one single season of a Lord of the Rings TV series, but a multi-season adaptation of the timeless fantasy books Tolkien penned.

The Monday announcement was followed by a tweet from Bezos saying "Amazon Prime heads to Middle Earth".

Hollywood entertainment website Deadline reported the deal came with an eye-watering upfront rights payment of around US$200 million (S$272.5 million).

Matt Galsor also claimed in his statement that "Sharon and the team at Amazon Studios have exceptional ideas to bring to the screen previously unexplored stories based on JRR Tolkien's original writings". Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below!
