    It's a distant prequel to the books, last I heard, like 1000 years before or something.

    Afaik the Tolkien estate weren't super happy of the making of the movies in the first place though? The rights had been sold off decades before, and by the time of the Hobbit there was a legal battle between the Tolkien Estate and the movie makers over a royalty dispute I think it was (?), so makes sense they wouldn't be very keen to allow more than what was strictly required.

    Whereas here the rights have been directly negotiated with the estate, and it'd be super silly if they'd refuse such important parts of the second age material to be used (All of the Mariner's Wife story, on Galadriel and Celeborn, loads of extra info on Numenor and its culture, etc).

    On a side note but in the same line: I am also for making it more bloody. Not spartacus bloody. And not blood for the sake of blood. Because for all its wars, LotR never had real impact, in regards to its soldiers, in its wars. There are two points were i felt sad in fights. Boromirs and Haldirs deaths. The rest were ragdoll deaths i did not care about. But i can live without it as the whole premise was more about heroism than the horrors of war and maybe be the wrong universe to adress it.
    just like it don't need to rely sext scenes and it don't need to be bloody to be good, like we are saying it goes against the premise of tolkien to do something focused on the story, on the heroism and being "epic".

    Same ay we don't cut the sex and the bloody scenes from GoT because those are fundamental parts of the stoty.

    Oh, then perhaps... As long as they don't turn it into the softcore porn that was GOT for easy pandering to the lowest common denominator, I might give it a chance...

    New characters and a fresh story so far back might be interesting, actually! Was afraid they'd just remake the movies in a tv show format.

    No, this is a problem you have created and, seemingly, accepted it happening as a known fact.

    putting something that does not exist in the books/are not portrayed just to pander the GoT fanbase is a problem, you liking or not.

    As I said, this is a problem you've created yourself and simply accepted that there will be sex scenes when all you have is a casting call that supposedly says "must be ok with nudity." You've jumped right to sex scenes in your mind and decided they're happening. This is a you issue.

    yeah dude, i create myself, is not like saw this same shit before, and the hobbit was criticized exactly for those things.

    Like we are saying here, we are discussing possibilities, if don't happen great.

    Amazon Studios has hired Jennifer Ward-Lealand, a respected intimacy coordinator whose job it is to oversee sex and nudity scenes and ensure that everyone is comfortable during filming.
    This combined with the fact that they're casting people who must be okay with nudity makes it seem pretty unambiguous.

    Apparently those reports may not be really accurate. There's some misinformation regarding the whole thing. There's a good video/discussion here

    So you're saying the internet overreacted to something that isn't even in production yet?

    Color me shocked.

    I'm going to look into that. Thanks.

    Well, the guy's not an authority or anything, he's just pointing out that that GoT connection is basically nothing more than clickbait.

    With the original context of Bezos's request/orders, it could just as easily apply to something like The Boys (which seems to have blown up recently...or maybe I just wasn't paying attention before now).

    The sunlight compositing looks pretty bad. Also the image is really devoid of color and looks really grey. Where are the vivid colors? Elrond and Galadriel wore rings which preserved the color and beauty of their sanctuaries.

    It seems that those are the Two Trees of Valinor. Image is still dull, though.

    Why does this image look so generic to me? Can't quite put my finger on it.
