Amazon Responded After LOTR’s Peter Jackson Says Series Ghosted Him, But There’s More To The Story


The world of Middle-earth is closer than ever to coming to television thanks to Amazon Prime’s The Rings of Powerbut its setting in the Second Age doesn’t mean that it’ll be a prequel to Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings movie trilogy in the third age. While characters like Galadriel and Elrond have roles in the series (and appeared in the latest big trailer), they won’t the same versions as those that appeared in the movies, and the director has said that he was ghosted about the possibility of contributing to the project. Amazon has a different take on the situation.

What Peter Jackson Said About The Rings Of Power

the Lord of the Rings films were epic back when they released from 2001-2003, and have become iconic in the two decades since. the hobbit trilogy proved that Peter Jackson could bring his Middle-earth magic touch back in time for adventures set before the Fellowship came together, so it was only natural for fans to wonder if Amazon’s The Rings of Power would have a connection to the movies… or Jackson himself. Recently, Jackson was featured in The Hollywood Reporter’s Awards Chatter podcast (opens in new tab)and after confirming that he’ll be watching the new show, he shared:

They asked me if I wanted to be involved in it right upfront, and I said to them ‘It’s an impossible question to answer without seeing a script.’ … They said, ‘As soon as we get the first couple of scripts, we’ll send them to you to look at.’ And the scripts never showed up. [laughs] That was the last thing I heard.
