Soon they could arrive in the movie theaters new movies of the franchise The Lord of the Ringsat least this is what was understood by a suggestion on the matter given by David Zaslav, the boss of Warner Bros.during a meeting with shareholders.
Of course, he didn’t say anything too explicit and didn’t reveal the company’s future plans, but he talked about expanding his best-known franchises, among which he also mentioned The Lord of the Rings. Note that Warner Bros. is not involved with the Amazon Prime Video series: The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, but has produced the Peter Jackson.
Zaslav: “We haven’t had a Superman movie in 13 years. We haven’t had a Harry Potter movie in 15 years. The DC movies and the Harry Potter movies have brought in a lot of profits for Warner Bros. over the past 25 years. House of Dragon is an important example to follow; Game of Thrones mixed with Sex and the City. The Lord of the Rings: We still have the rights to make films based on The Lord of the Rings. “
Warner Bros. has held the exploitation rights of The Lord of the Rings since the 1990s. For now he has used them to make two trilogies: The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. Currently the company is working on an animated film called The Lord of the Rings: The War of the Rohirrim, set hundreds of years before the trilogy and set near Helm’s Deep. The film is expected to be released on April 12, 2024.
For now, nothing else is known about Warner Bros. projects related to The Lord of the Rings. Probably the series has returned to the center of the company’s interests precisely due to the arrival of the Amazon series, of which it wants to take advantage of the long wave.
