The Embrace Group company has announced the acquisition of the rights to make The Lord of the Rings films and has some ideas about making feature films centered on its most popular characters, such as Gandalf, Aragorn or Gollum
In a few weeks we will have in the Amazon Prime Video catalog The Rings of Power , a television series based on the universe of The Lord of the Rings by JRR Tolkien , whose last on-screen foray took place in 2014 with the film The Hobbit: The battle of the five armies .
Because almost ten years have passed since the last film, the film rights expired and in February 2022 the availability to acquire the rights to make The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit films was announced.
While Amazon sounded strong to acquire its rights and further expand Tolkien’s work, it has finally been a Swedish video game and media conglomerate called Embracer Group that has been done with The Lord of the Rings .
Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but Embracer now has the power to produce movies, shows, video games and more based on a variety of Tolkien books, including The Lord of the Rings, the company announced in a statement. .

In said statement, Embracer includes a preview of what its plans include, where some ideas are weighed to make Lord of the Rings movies focused on some of the most recognizable characters in the franchise, such as Gandalf, Aragorn, Gollum, Galadriel or Éowyn
Although there is still nothing officially announced, it is clear that Embracer wants to take advantage of its recent acquisition, so it is a matter of time before the company confirms what its plans are for the future cinematography of The Lord of the Rings.
To appease the wait for more details about the new Lord of the Rings movies, we will have the series The Rings of Power, whose premiere on Amazon Prime Video is scheduled for September 2, 2022.
