“All that is gold does not glitter.” ~ J.R.R. Tolkien
Yoystan from Men of the West discusses his reaction to the news that Amazon will be creating a new TV Series based upon the works of Professor Tolkien set in a time before the events of The Lord of the Rings.
I thought I’d share this video I came across, because it reflects a lot of the feelings and reactions that have been expressed by myself and other fans here in Mordor about the making of this new TV Show. He discuses the implications of what this means to fans of the books and movies, and how we all have feelings of excitement and trepidation about how it might be handled. He also discusses the events leading up to this announcement and the fact that this is coming from the Tolkien Estate and the fact that Christopher Tolkien has now stepped down from his post on the Board.
