The War of the Rohirrim would center on former Rohan King Helm Hammerhand, though it is unrelated to an Amazon series.
Another fresh Lord of the Rings prequel is in the works, this time in the shape of an anime. Helm Hammerhand, Rohan’s ninth king, will be the centre of The Lord of the Rings: The War of the Rohirrim. The film will be produced by Warner Bros. Animation and directed by Kenji Kamiyama, who directed Ghost in the Shell. It will be set in J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle-earth realm.
Helm’s Deep, who were depicted in Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers film as the site of the subsequent Battle of the Hornburg during the War of the Ring, will be explored in this film.
“The chance to return to Middle-earth with both the Warner Brothers Animation team is a great opportunity,” said Carolyn Blackwood, Warner Brothers Pictures Group COO, and Richard Brener, President and Chief Creative Officer of New Line Cinema. “With many of the same creative geniuses engaged and the brilliant Kenji Kamiyama at the helm, fans remember Helm’s Deep as the setting for one of the greatest fights ever put to film, and we couldn’t be more delighted to present a fresh interpretation of its history.”
Philippa Boyens, who worked on Peter Jackson’s and Fran Walsh’s Lord of the Rings trilogy 20 years ago, is a consultant on the anime film.
Warner Bros. has stated that the film would be rushed. The voices for the characters have yet to be cast.
Amazon Prime is also developing a Lord of the Rings prequel, but this time it’ll be a big-budget fantasy TV show. The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings are said to be set in Tolkien’s Second Age, thousands of years before the events of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.
