The Lord of the rings It is probably the most important fantasy saga of all time. If we take into account that Disney owns the rights to franchises like starwars and Marvel Studiosand that he has demonstrated supremely good knowledge of the operation and management of these sagas… That the work of J. R. R. Tolkien ends up in the hands of this studio would not be bad news. Another thing is the legal implications regarding monopoly issues and others. But the news is considerably good, especially for fans of the universe of the Middle Earth.
Amazon does not own the rights to the cherished trilogy
Many may be wondering how it is possible that Disney wants to buy the rights to The Lord of the rings Yes Prime Video is going to be brand new The Rings of Power in September of this same year. The truth is amazon does not own the rights to the trilogy, but some elements related to The Silmarillion… and not all! That is the reason why the series The Rings of Power It will have to invent many plots and reinvent many others. They are “caught” by the obligation not to touch what they do not possess. We’ll see how it all ends, but this current movement is very interesting.
