Amazon has unveiled a new interactive map of Middle-earth. which may contain a hint of the timing of the series based on the works of J.R.R. Tolkien. In particular, the map shows the area of Calenardon, which did not appear in The Lord of the Rings.
Those who are familiar with the ancient history of Middle-earth know that this huge hilly plain north of the White Mountains later became known called Rohan. Thus, most likely, events will take place in the Second Age, that is, at the time of the creation of the Rings of Power and the first rise of Sauron.
Recall that Amazon acquired the rights to the movie adaptation for $ 250 million. Filming is expected to take place in the homeland of Peter Jackson, creator of the feature-length trilogy "The Lord of the Rings". The director himself stated that that he does not intend to participate in the creation of a television show. "At one time, I watched" The Lord of the Rings "not like everyone else, because I shot it myself. Now I am looking forward to seeing someone else present their eyes," he said in an interview in the fall 2018.
According to unconfirmed rumors, Amazon may invest up to a billion dollars in the production of TV series about the world of Middle-earth.
