The War of the Rohirrim, set in Peter Jackson’s cinematic universe, will be directed by Kenji Kamiyama.

Amazon Prime has just shown the first teaser trailer for The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, the new series that will premiere on September 2 on the platform. Meanwhile, another of the projects based on the work of J.R.R. Tolkien has shown signs of life. This is the anime film The Lord of the Rings: The War of the Rohirrim, a film that has just shared concept art and release date. Warner Bros. Pictures and New Line Cinema have confirmed that it will be released on April 12, 2024. Where? We don’t know yet.

There is still a long time for the feature film directed by Kenji Kamiyama (Blade Runner: Black Lotus) and produced by Philippa Boyens (Trilogies of The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit) to see the light, but some novelties have been announced. The story will be set in Helm’s Abyss, a Rohan location that we already saw in The Two Towers, although this product is set in another era, in the era of the former King Helm Hamerhand.

Within the universe of Peter Jackson

Unlike the Amazon series, The War of the Rohirrim is entirely set in peter Jackson’s cinematic universe, although the director is not directly involved in the production. Joseph Chou (Blade Runner: Black Lotus) will serve as producer, while Phoebe Gittins and Arty Papageorgiou will adapt a script based on texts by Jeffrey Addiss and Will Matthews, the same creative team behind The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance.

Familiar faces from the film trilogies will be back in Middle-earth, as in the case of John Howe and Richard Taylor. Warner Bros. has announced that work began the last year in 2021, while they have mentioned that the cast will be announced imminently. The Lord of the Rings: The Rohirrim War will be “unlike anything the audience has seen” so far, Warner Bros. Toby Emmerich said.
