    Fans of a long-standing fantasy or sci-fi franchise not liking the direction of a new product in that franchise?

    They are attempting broaden the appeal of the franchise but still play to nostalgia. The majority consumer of this product has been Caucasian Males 25+.

    So if you are curious about the direction

    is another bait and switch to put another headstrong wamen princess that now has to become a warrior. Something new that we never saw before. Exactly what people wanted after rings of power, who fucking care about Helm am i right, no one would like to see a gritty story with him in anime style.


    This better be reaaaly good to make up for that dumb decision, otherwise is just rings of power 2.0

    It is weird to me that, if they want to broad the appeal by bringing more women, isn't Vigo/Aragorn one of the reasons why females like lotr, removing a pretty male lead that is their appeal seems like counter productive

    yeah, as soon as I heard they focus on her instead of helm hammerhand...

    considering it will be out in cinema, this is a very stupid decision...
