'Lord of the Rings' TV Series Reportedly Set to Follow Young Aragorn

Will Amazon's Lord of the Ring series focus on young Aragorn? Amazon's billion dollar Lord of the Rings series will focus on 'major movie character'

We have to wait for an official confirmation from Amazon to be certain that this is indeed where the series will go, but the choice makes ideal sense and would basically be a slam dunk for Amazon. In truth, all we really knew was that the show was going to be very, very expensive.

Aragorn, one of the main protagonists from the critically acclaimed Lord of the Rings trilogy, is said to return for the eponymous television series but in a bit different way.

If you need a refresher, Aragorn is the character played by Viggo Mortensen in the Lord of the Rings film trilogy.

If the TV show did center itself around Young Aragorn that would mean the origins of the character would be revealed, allowing for a connection to the Numenoreans and the Dunedain to be established, this would also include the founding of Gondor and the northern kingdom of Arnor.

The show will be drawing inspiration not just from the Lord of the Rings, but also the many appendices that were published to tie into Tolkien's books. For one, thanks to the long lifespans of the Dúnedain, Aragorn was already 87 years old by the time he showed up in the movies, meaning there's a whole lot of adventurin' Middle-Earth's manliest man probably got up to before Sauron got cooking on his plan to rule them all.

The studio is throwing a staggering amount of resources behind the series, which will be aiming to pick up the audience left bereft when Game of Thrones winds up next year. In fact, the first season could possibly take place right in Rivendell and follow young Aragorn from there. That might be a clever way to encompass much of Tolkien's sprawling history - essentially treating the show as an anthology series, with each season focusing on a new character and new storyline.

Of course, there has been no official announcement from Amazon (the series is, after all, still at an early development stage), so we have to treat this as still in the realm of rumour and speculation for now.
