The showrunners of the series acknowledge that they do not forget what Peter Jackson did at the time, but that his work “does not compete with the movies.”

There are still a few months for us to see the new series about The Lord of the Rings premiered on Amazon Primebut that does not mean that we forget about it until next September 2, because the magazine Empire has released a new image of one of the new races of Middle-earth that can be seen in production.

Almost in the dark and coming out of what looks like a cave, we can see a snow trollas described by the magazine, which has also accompanied the photograph with an interview with the showrunners of The Rings of Power, in which the three, JD Payne, Patrick McKay, and director JA Bayona, acknowledge that they do not want to compete with the work of Peter Jackson.

“Anyone trying to do anything from The Lord of the Rings would be making a mistake if they didn’t know what a wonderful job Peter Jackson once did. But we have remained admirers from a distancebecause The Rings of Power is not intended to compete with the work he did,” says McKay in the interview.

All three producers have acknowledged that they have had to keep a cool head not to make the Amazon Prime Video series look like other big franchises of the moment, such as George RR Martin’s Game of Thrones, and that the only question they asked themselves was: “What would Tolkien have done?”.

“Some of the properties that we have seen in recent years touch a very nice eighth, but Tolkien with his material played all the piano. It had a wide variety of shades. He talked about fantasy, about friendship, about humor, but also about sophistication, about politics, about history, about mythology… and all of it in depth,” explains McKay.

The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power is set many years before of what happened in The Lord of the Rings, in the Third Age of Middle-earth, and has already become the most expensive series on Amazon Prime Video.
