I know people have mixed feelings about the upcoming new lotr adaptation but they would have to fuck up SO BAD for me to feel anything other than pure joy and excitement. I'm pretty sure I've seen every second of the lotr and hobbit films in gif form at least 5 times each. It would be worth it for new wideshots of arda locations and costumes alone, tbh.

Amazon's 'LOTR' to be the largest TV series ever made
Amazon’s ‘LOTR’ to be the largest TV series ever made
Turns out the highly anticipated Lord of the Rings series will be costing more than your previous record-breaking estimates. It will be the largest television series ever made.
The Amazon Studios’ fantasy series will be worth all the gold in the Lonely Mountain as Amazon confirms it will spend USD 465 million roughly, for only the first season of the show. That’s far more than previously recorded…
We've seen nothing from Amazon's The Lord of the Rings TV show, but it's going to be a series on a scale like nothing else on television if these figures are any indication. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the first season of the show has cost a whopping $465 million to produce.
"What I can tell you is Amazon is going to spend about $650 million [New Zealand dollars] in season one alone," Stuart Nash, New Zealand Minister for Economic Development and Tourism reveals, sharing a figure which has since been confirmed by the trade. "This is fantastic, it really is...this will be the largest television series ever made."
It had better be for that money, and to put this into perspective for you, a standard season of Game of Thrones cost around $100 million to produce. During its first season, a standard episode cost $6 million, though that rose to $15 million by those divisive final episodes.
A lot of this money has likely been spent on sets and costumes which will be used moving forward, but these production costs are massive, and The Lord of the Rings is a major investment for Amazon.
That's an insane amount of money, especially when it was previously reported that the streaming service would spend roughly $500 million on multiple seasons of the J.R.R. Tolkien adaptation.
Every one in a while I remember Amazon is gonna release that LoTR tv series this year and I just don’t think think TV is the right medium for any kind of silm content. There’s only three way to do it right and they’re laser light show, rock operah, or on ice
