    Yeah. The Rivendell miniature and matte paintings from the LotR trilogy had soul.

    To be honest I'm not expecting much soul from this show, from the way things sound it's gonna try and be more like a GoT copy than a soulful reproduction of Tolkien's work.

    Well, LotR, after all these years, is a super generic fantasy setting.

    Sadly I guess that is the answer, because the picture screams generic to me. Then again, it might not be that important in the overall, heh, picture...

    That picture looks like an unused shot that you would get in the features of a blu-ray. Looks kind of untouched up and, I don't want to say low quality, but doesn't have post applied.

    Looks like Valimar and the two Trees of Valinor.
    Just don't reply to me. Please. If you can help it.

    I'm a little confused by Lenny Henry's casting.
    Not known for his drama skills.
    Or really even comedy skills. lel

    Peter tho will always be Mother Superior to me.

    Probably Tirion with a view of the two trees. Interesting. But the show is said to be set in the Second Age. So it may be an intro where they quickly explain why the Edain got Númenor, what is Valinor, what happened during the First Age, etc.


    And of course we have the usual sourpusses...

    It seems that those are the Two Trees of Valinor. Image is still dull, though.
    Well, of course it is dull. The light is coming from the Two Trees, down on the horizon, and we're looking towards the trees. Therefore, everything we see will be in shadows and dull. They were living in perpetual twilight before the creation of the sun and moon.

    Gah, don't you dare be touching the Silmarillion. No way they can be doing it justice.

    You can see the Two Trees there both giving off light, but Telperion doesn't look silvery enough. Laurelin gave off golden light and Telperion silver. Given both of them seem to be giving off light that would make it the dusk or dawn period as that was the only time both were active. Even so, they just don't seem majestic or impressive enough, given that apart from the stars they were the only source of light in the world, which gave light to an entire continent.

    But it is concept art so we will have to see how it turns out.

    It seems to be "daytime", since Telperion is not shining. That's why its boughs and trunk appear dark in contrast to Laurelin.

    I read it a bit different.

    The one at the back is Telperion as it is a whitish colour, and certainly not golden. Telperion was the one that was the 'moon'. The one at the front is Laurelin the Golden (the 'sun' equivalent). It does seem to be giving off a sun like light from the middle of its branches in the picture.

    Seems like Tirion... mostly due to the fact of mountain cliffs either side of it.

    It's really not. You could show me pretty much any shot from the LotR trilogy and I could immediately identify it as LotR. This seems to be more about art direction and bad CGI. The image just looks sterile and forgettable as fuck.
    The absolute state of Warcraft lore in 2021:
    Kyrians: We need to keep chucking people into the Maw because it's our job.
    Also Kyrians: Why is the Maw growing stronger despite all our efforts?

    Yes it did become the staple, generic fantasy. Noble elves/dwarves, evil orcs, mixed bag of humans, clear black vs white etc. That's what I meant.

    LotR isn't generic. Most fantasy is simply based on it.

    I'm talking about the CGI, the composition, the architecture etc. This could just as well be a shot from some retarded DC Snyder movie. That's what I meant when I said "generic".

    I mean, LOTR is the pilar.

    If Lotr did anything - the movie anyway - was normalize the fantasy genre as mainstream

    Yes, I realize. But after all those years any many more fantasy settings, it just lost appeal for me.
