Amazon has announced a series inspired by JRR Tolkien’s Lord Of The Rings and The Hobbit novels will premiere in September next year.
The date was announced as filming in New Zealand concluded for the as-yet untitled series, which Amazon said will relate the “fabled Second Age of Middle Earth’s history”.
The story is set thousands of years before the events of Tolkien’s famed fantasy adventure works.
It will follow new and familiar characters confronting the “long-feared re-emergence of evil to Middle Earth”, the streaming service said.
The series will debut in more than 200 countries and territories.
The show will feature a large ensemble cast that includes Cynthia Addai-Robinson, Morfydd Clark, Ismael Cruz Cordova, Sophia Nomvete and Lloyd Owen.
New Zealand also was the filming location for director Peter Jackson’s Lord Of The Rings and The Hobbit movie trilogies.
