Peter Jackson Says Amazons Lord of the Rings TV Series Ghosted Him

>“They asked me if I wanted to be involved — [writer-producer Fran Walsh] and I — and I said, ‘That’s an impossible question to answer without seeing a script,'” Jackson recalls to Scott Feinberg on The Hollywood Reporter‘s Awards Chatter podcast. “So they said, ‘As soon as we get the first couple scripts, we’ll send them to you.’ And the scripts never showed up. That’s the last thing I heard, which is fine. No complaints at all.”

>Amazon Studios responded to Jackson’s comments with the following statement: “In pursuing the rights for our show, we were obligated to keep the series distinct and separate from the films. We have the utmost respect for Peter Jackson and The Lord of The Rings films and are thrilled that he is looking forward to the watching The Rings of Power.”

    I have faith in the show. Amazon has done a really good job with other projects like Terminal List and The Boys. Yes it will make people who hate blacks unhappy, but overall it will be a quality show.

Eric Kripke has had lots of experience with TV shows, some hits, some failures, some canceled before their time. He had ups and downs. Who the hell is making Rings of Power?

      Plenty of flaws in those movies but was there really anyway around the Shire without cutting? Even Christopher Lee said, over a decade after the RotK released at some random lowkey Q&A event at a Irish university, that it would have made the movie too, too long and couldn't have been done

        who cares? is this the sort of excuse you’ll give the ring of powers? The Hackson films unironically created a vast mass of frat boy fans that rejoice at any rape and mutilation of Tolkiens lore as long as it’s not a black man doing the raping

        Aragorn in the movies are a totally different character of the one Tolkien envisioned. The same could be said about Elrond, Faramir and others.

      Scouring would not fit a movie adaption, not unless Return of the King was 6 hours long. This isn't hard to understand.

          There's a difference between there being a noticeable barrier between books and action movies, and Amazon having the choice to keep things as the are without any difficulties but refusing to anyway. RotK is gigantic and adding the scouring in a movie adaptation would be stupid considering even now people whine that the movie never ends. If Amazon uses this logic, I won't mind. But if they change something that really doesn't have to be changed to be brought to a screen, then I'll complain.

    Yeah, that's why you brought back Howard Shore, used his theme in the trailer, shot in NZ, had Weta design the costumes and CGI, use actors who resemble the OG trilogy actors to play Elrond and Galadriels, use the same Balrog design. Lol.

    So it's explicitly non-canon, who cares then? If it's admittedly just irrelevant fanfiction, what is there to be angry about?
