Lord Of The Rings: Rings Of Power Is Not TV But A "New Form" Of Entertainment, Director Says

ITS LITERALLY A NEW FORM of LULZ! HYPE!

>Amazon's The Lord of the Rings TV show, The Rings of Power, reportedly carries one of the biggest budgets in the history of any TV production. Now, some of the key creatives working on the project have spoken about the budget and how they believe it's actually a bargain for what's being produced. Not only that, but one of its directors believes The Rings of Power isn't even a TV show, but it's instead something new for the entertainment world.

>Showrunner JD Payne told Empire that people should "keep the budget in context," adding that The Rings of Power Season 1 is actually more akin to an eight-hour movie.

>"This is the length of three Marvel films, done on the schedule of two, for the budget of one. Look at it in the context of what's actually being produced and you could say that it's a bargain," Payne said.

>Amazon is said to have spent $250 million on the rights alone, along with $465 million to produce Season 1. Amazon's Jennifer Salke said the massive fee makes for a good headline for people to latch onto, but she reminded people that this money is being spent to "sustain the whole series."

>Director J.A. Bayona is quoted in the piece, too, saying The Rings of Power should not even be thought of as a TV show because it's breaking new ground in the entertainment space. "The Rings of Power is not television. It's a new form we're creating here," Bayona said.

How hyped are you?

          There were either three or four confirmed ones, but Tolkien never fully established how exactly a half-elf works, since at least one of them didn't have the "choose which race you belong to" gift from Eru, and was simply a very long lived human. I see no reason there wouldn't be a few more throughout the millenia, especially if that leak is true and he is from a region that:
          A. Had Elves.
          B. Tolkien wrote next to nothing about.

        that's kind of what will happen, the harfoots are stated to have browner skin so the show explains that by saying that some of their ancestors were black/brown but they all homogenise long before you get to the events of LOTR

                That's got nothing to do with the height of the actors, it's how they have decided to present the characters and Gil-galad will be particularly tall
                See here she is shown as the same height as Elrond, whose actor is 6foot

                The issue is more to do with you thinking Gil-galad is too tall

                There aren't people who have the size AND proportions of dwarves and hobbits. You have to alter their size to get the desired look and mobility. You can find many an actress of average height and the desired build to play an elf.

      no she won't, white women are box office poison as action leads, no one buys it. and this one looks weird, plus galandriel doesn't have the appeal that dany had for the female demographic. she doesn't fuck tons of hot men, she doesn't girl boss, she doesn't get worshipped by unwashed masses of browns. at most this version will just be an action girl. the female demographic don't care about action girls.

          It's stated verbatim that Melkor assisted the elves in inventing swords used for the
          first kinslaying , Galadriel is neve portrayed as using a sword and it's implied she uses bows instead. Bows being the creation of Oröme the hunter

            >Now the Quendi had possessed weapons in Middle-earth, but not of their own devising. They had been made by Aule and sent as gifts by the hand of Orome, when it became known to the Valar that the Quendi were beset by prowling evils that had discovered the places of their dwelling beside Cuivienen; and more were sent later for the defence of the Eldar upon the Great March to the shores of the Sea. But all these were long unused, and lay in hoard as memorials of old days half-forgotten; and since the chaining of Melkor the armouries of the Valar also had been shut.
            Aule had given them weapons on their journey to the coast. While what you say is true about Morgoth, it might not be necessarily true that the first sword was forged under him. But regardless, swords did not have an inhernetly evil connotation for Elves or Men. Which is why there are so many famous swords in Tolkien's world, the most obvious being Narsil and Glamdring

          Jarring to switch between a dub actor and the English actor whenever they are speaking elvish or whatever.
          Alternative would be to try and get the dub actor to speak these fantasy languages which would just be hilarious, like imagine a Japanese or Mexican trying to recite Sindarin

    >ITS LITERALLY A NEW FORM of LULZ! HYPE!
    's The Lord of the Rings TV show, The Rings of Power, reportedly carries one of the biggest budgets in the history of any TV production. Now, some of the key creatives working on the project have spoken about the budget and how they believe it's actually a bargain for what's being produced. Not only that, but one of its directors believes The Rings of Power isn't even a TV show, but it's instead something new for the entertainment world.
    Uh huh, something new using something old's name?
    JD Payne told Empire that people should "keep the budget in context," adding that The Rings of Power Season 1 is actually more akin to an eight-hour movie.
    So like I should expect a lot?
    Huge budget, huge expectations?
    >>"This is the length of three Marvel films, done on the schedule of two, for the budget of one. Look at it in the context of what's actually being produced and you could say that it's a bargain," Payne said.
    God what a terrible pitch. "Lower your expectations" It's like they're already apologizing and trying to frame our pity.
    is said to have spent $250 million on the rights alone, along with $465 million to produce Season 1. Amazon's Jennifer Salke said the massive fee makes for a good headline for people to latch onto, but she reminded people that this money is being spent to "sustain the whole series."
    Sustain the rights, not the quality. Almost a billion dollars spent and they're already telling us it'll look a third as good as a Marvel movie.
    J.A. Bayona is quoted in the piece, too, saying The Rings of Power should not even be thought of as a TV show because it's breaking new ground in the entertainment space. "The Rings of Power is not television. It's a new form we're creating here," Bayona said.
    Yeah, "it's not tv" as a slogan is taken Amazon.

      There are alot of rumours of them releasing the first two episodes in cinemas (worldwide) as a standalone movie, but that in itself wouldn't be anything revolutionary

          Yeah, they might do a cinema release a week early I guess? Get people talking about it
          It's not a done deal but since Amazon bought MGM they have the capacity to get media into cinemas easily and it's definitely something they are seriously looking into.
          Also JA Bayona released some frames which were in 2.39:1 aspect ratio, meaning they filmed it for cinema screen format

    I won't watch it because I don't like Lord of the Rings and because Amazon only produced two good things since ever (ZeroZeroZero and Lost City of Z), but I really want to see the shitshow surrounding everything with it. I think LULZ will be mess during the first episodes.
    My brother will probably go crazy over this shit because he likes the books and he got a Prime account.

      Yet they cripple that theme by compressing 1000 years to one lifetime, diluting the impact of men just growing old and elves staying forever.

        well maybe but having something just depicting the elves fear of fading could be kino enough. In fact that can lead into why they want magic rings in the first place (which do actually restrict the passage of time) because elves age too, just very slowly

          No, elves don't age past adulthood. They are specifically described as "ageless". Yes, I know Cirdan technically has signs of aging, but Tolkien had the unfortunate flaw of inserting exceptions into his own established rules.
          What they do is "diminish" or "fade away" - without a powerful source of magic, they very slowly turn into something similar to wraiths, though obviously not evil or insane. That's why, once the Third Age ends, most of them will sooner or later have to travel to Valinor...

          Except there are also tribes like the fucking star elves, who never travelled to Valinor in the first place. As I said - Tolkien loved his exceptions to the rules.

            I'm not talking about aging in a physically sense, dumbass. For elves, their body ages and start to disconnect from their spirit once they get really old.
            Tolkien is very explicate about this

            Elves wanting to prevent future decay and fading is very relevant to the 2nd age events

                You clearly don't understand what you are talking about. The idea of elvish spirits and bodies disconnecting is fundamental to middle earth.
                Elves do age and '''die'' in a physically sense, but its not something a human can comprehend

                These bros literally go and chill in the gloom of Mandos for an unspecified amount of time before jumping into new bodies.

                Read The Nature of Middle Earth
                The fading of the elves is a very well known concept, Tolkien explicitly said that at the end of the 3rd age Galadriel was so old she was on the verge of her body physically starting to fade away.
                Tolkien wrote about this multiple times!
