"The Lord of the Rings: The War of the Rohirrim": New movie to be released after Amazon series

There is already a US date as well as first concept art

In recent days and weeks, there has been a pleasing amount of news about the new Amazon series "The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power". After the very first teaser in January, we were able to report not only a first trailer for the Super Bowl, but also on brand new images that Amazon itself published. Apparently, another story from "The Lord of the Rings" universe is now on the horizon, namely a new movie. The project is called "The Lord of the Rings: The War of the Rohirrim" and apparently revolves around the well-known inhabitants of the kingdom of Rohan, almost 200 years before the events of "The Hobbit" and the Peter Jackson trilogy. More specifically, the focus is to be on the then King Helm Hammerhand. Furthermore, the construction of the fortress Helm's Deep, the important setting from "The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers", will be a major theme. The US magazine Variety has already exclusively published a first image of the planned movie. Unfortunately, this is still a concept image and not a real scene from the movie. Nevertheless, many "Lord of the Rings" fans might feel reminded of the Peter Jackson's film trilogy at this sight. One reason for this is certainly the Mûmakil on the left side of the picture, because the Haradrim once went into battle on these elephant-like animals. This also suggests that the conflicts between Haradrim and Rohirrim will play a major role, because the two human races have an unpleasant common history. In the books by J.R.R.Tolkien, however, it is rather the Dunlendings who make life difficult for the Rohirrim. These two peoples are also extremely suspicious of each other, because the tall Dunlendings once lived in the territory of what was then Rohan, before they were driven to Dunland by the new inhabitants, the Rohirrim. In "The Lord of the Rings" movies, they could also already be seen being recruited by Saruman to destroy Rohan. "The Lord of the Rings: The War of the Rohirrim" is scheduled for release in U.S theaters on April 11, 2024.
