Rank 10 Possible Tolkien Tales for The Lord of the Rings Series

The forging of the One Ring is just one of the many tales Amazon could develop for its Lord of the Rings prequel.

by | November 14, 2017 | Comments

Amazon will soon bring the history of Middle-earth to its subscribers with a Lord of the Rings prequel series detailing previously unexplored stories based on J.R.R. Tolkien’s original writings.

The possibilities for the series are endless as Tolkien devised thousands of years of history to precede the War of the Ring. Some of these legends – mainly concerning the First Age of Middle-earth – are not part of the Rings license and will not be part of the series, but the movements of Sauron and other geopolitical events with direct ties to The Lord of the Rings offer a multitude of options.

We’ve collected a few story line options from the histories that Amazon has to chose from. Rank them below. Don’t see your favorite story line below? Tell us in the comments!
