The Lord of the Rings animated movie is in the works at Warner Bros. Animation and New Line Cinema. The prequel film, The Lord of the Rings: The War of the Rohirrim, will be directed by Kenji Kamiyama (Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, Blade Runner: Black Lotus, Eden of the East) with Sola Entertainment as the animation studios for the movie. The Dark Crystal: The Age Of Resistance writers Jeffrey Addiss and Will Matthews are writing the screenplay.
The Lord of the Rings: The War of the Rohirrim, an original animated movie, will explore and expands the untold story behind the fortress of Helm’s Deep, delving into the life and bloodsoaked times of one of Middle-earth’s most legendary figures; the mighty King of Rohan – Helm Hammerhand.”
The Lord of the Rings: The War of the Rohirrim has no released date yet. We are guessing the anime film is still in early stage of development.
