He concluded: “And it’s not just UK originals we make here, some of Amazon’s biggest global originals will call the UK home, like Lord of the Rings will do this year.”
Ahead of the show’s release, Samwise Gamgee star Sean Astin shared his thoughts on the new series and told IGN: “I, for one, am excited.
“I saw the preview for it, and it gave me chills. It looked like they got it.
“I’ve been saying the whole time, they’re gonna do it right.
“There’s no way Amazon is gonna pay almost a billion dollars for a franchise just to screw it up.”
Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power will air on Amazon Prime Video on September 2.
