We now know when the television series "The Lord of the Rings" of Amazon will be scheduled


While there are still no official details or storylines, Amazon chooses to slowly release basic information on the billions of dollars as it gets closer to our screens.

A few weeks ago, the official Twitter account published a link to an interactive map of Middle-earth. This Thursday, the account made another message – updating the interactive map with the place names and confirming that the series will be placed in the senior age.

So what does that mean? Well, to begin with, the series will almost certainly NOT set a young Aragorn, as the character is born in the old age. The end of the second age was seen in the very first film of The Lord of the Rings, The Fellowship of the Ring.

When Isildur, descendant of Aragorn, cut off Sauron's hand and retrieved the unique ring, usually considered the end of the second age and the beginning of the third age – which is then the movie "The Lord of the Rings" , not the Amazon series, has been defined.

It was also when the Gondor and Arnor were founded as nations in exile by Elendil, and that the last alliance between humans and elves existed before the events of the "Lord of the Rings". More specifically, however, the Second Age saw the creation of One Ring of Sauron and the creation of Rivendell, the bastion of the elves that featured in all Tolkien's adapted films.

As it is of course JRR Tolkien, all these scenarios have been mapped and carefully collected for decades, which means that there are literally years of stories that can be adapted to the screen.

There is still no broadcast date, and no casting has been announced for any of the roles, so for now, it's just a matter of waiting for see what will be announced next.
