We are crossing all of our fingers and toes that the studios will not be re-making the iconic series first brought to life on screen by director Peter Jackson, and instead will focus on storis from Middle Earth. no news has been revealed as of yet about what is taking place storywise. What we do know is the multiyear pact with rights holders Embracer Group AB allows Warners to develop features based on J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings books and The Hobbit. Embracer Group, the Swedish gaming company, acquired the rights to produce LOTR films, games, merchandise, theme park attractions and live productions when it purchased rights holder Middle-earth Enterprises last year from The Saul Zaentz Company. Could a Lord of The Rings land becoming to a theme park soon? We’d love to dine in Hobbiton…in a wee little home. We can just see it now. Let us know what your thoughts are on this exciting development.
