Сериал по Властелину Колец официально будет!

На днях все околотолкинистские круги переполошились из-за слухов о переговорах между Tolkien Estate, Warner Bros. и Amazon относительно нового телесериала по Властелину Колец. Теперь Амазон выпустил официальный пресс-релиз, который мы передадим здесь вкратце.

Амазон приобрел права на телевизионный многосезонный сериал по мотивам Властелина Колец. Этот сериал будет производиться в серии Amazon Prime Original совместно с Tolkien Estate and Trust, Harper Collins и New Line Cinema, дочерней компанией Warner Bros.

Директор производства сериалов Амазона, Шэрон Тэл Игуадо: «Властелин Колец — культурный феномен, захватывавший воображение целых поколений поклонников — благодаря книгам и киноэкрану. Мы почтем за честь сотрудничать с  Tolkien Estate and Trust, Harper Collins и New Line Cinema над этим телепроектом, и мы в восторге от мысли отправить поклонников ВК в новое эпичное путешествие по Средиземью.»

По словам Мэтта Гэлсора, представителя Tolkien Estate and Trust и HarperCollins, «команда студии Амазон представила совершенно исключительные идеи, чтобы раскрыть доселе неисследованные сюжеты, основанные на оригинальных произведениях Дж. Р. Р. Толкина.»

Телесериал покажет зрителям новые сюжетные линии, происходящие в Средиземье перед событиями Братства Кольца. Также у студии есть право на потенциальный сериал «спин-офф».

От редакции:

Итак, все вовсе не так страшно, как казалось. Речь идет не о ребуте, а о других историях Средиземья, не показанных ранее. Несколько изумляет участие Tolkien Estate: такое сотрудничество являет собой радикальную перемену в отношении душеприказчиков Толкина к экранизациям. Ну и о самом сериале тоже еще не очень ясно. Какие сюжетные линии будут исследоваться, и насколько задолго они будут происходить до событий Братства Кольца? Запланировано ли совершенно новое визуальное решение Средиземья, или же сериал будет опираться на решения из кинофильмов Питера Джексона? Будут ли вовлечены оригинальные актеры из кинотрилогий? Ответы на все эти вопросы, надеемся, будут раскрыты в будущем.
