Ve filmu měl zjevně píču ;)
Ten genderově vyvážený Sauron by mohl být zajímavý.
Pst. Nechtěl jsem to zakřiknout. :-)
snad budou i modří čarodějové
Je vseobecne znamo ze elfove cernosi, tedy odborne temni elfove nebo Avari, ve stredozemi existovali. Akorat se nejak moc nedostali do pribehu ... az doted.
Osobne bych dal prednost Silmarilum, Luthien, Huanovi a Carcharothovi.
Takhle se mame "tesit" na trpasliky a elfy cernochy a genderove vyvazeneho Saurona?
Tak období s Aragornem bylo zmapované už filmovou trilogií, takže já to třeba jen přivítám...
Takže bez Aragorna:
Amazon has updated the Twitter account for its mega-budget TV series adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s “The Lord of the Rings” and other Middle-Earth works (...) to reveal a new map of Middle-Earth and one that confirms the show will be set in the ‘Second Age’.
Welcome to the Second Age:https://www.amazon.com/adlp/lotronprimehttps://twitter.com/LOTRonPrime
Jo, moje prvni reakce kopiruje prvni reakci tam: What writing is this based on? Because tolkien barely touches on young aragon. This will be made up tv serial nonsense based on nothing, sure it might be good, but I'm not. Comfortable with inventing middle earth's stories. .... The lotr films are about 11 hours based on a lifetimes work of over 1000 pages tolkien wrote, the first series of this series will be around 11 hours based on a few paragraphs. Aside from a few names and events none.
Ale jako jo, pokud Aragorn nezustane uplny prcek dlouho, tak alespon neco k probrani maji.
Doporučuju celou tu sérii
tweetů od TheOneRing.net:
Let's discuss whats available and how this opens up Tolkien's Legendarium.
Firstly, we must stamp out any remaining confusion: From the first press release, we know this so-called LOTR series will NOT be a retelling of the events of the War of the Ring. Instead it will be Appendices based and cover a lot of time and history. This is the greatest advantage the show runners have: that so much of Tolkien’s storytelling, even just in “Appendix A,” covers a tremendous swath of time. Starting with a young Aragorn narrative allows connections to his Numenorean bloodline (and to the founding of Gondor).
The fabric of Aragorn’s story is just so rich. Plentiful in new characters and familiar ones we already love. Recall in BOTFA when Thranduil tells his son about this person he must meet (even though we know in book-time Aragorn wasn’t born yet)? "His father Arathorn was a good man. His son might grow to be a great one." If that mention of him wasn’t the biggest, brightest, neon-glaring indicator of how Aragorn’s story is ideally suited as a prime entry point for further Middle-earth stories, well then, you’re not thinking Prime like Amazon is (sorry, just had to)...
We could, in flashbacks, learn essentials about the men of Arnor, sister kingdom in the north to Gondor, and how the surviving Dunedain became a community of Rangers, seeking to protect the north from incursions of the Witch-king of Angmar.
With a vibrant historical background in place (fully explored in the Professor’s notations) the stage would be set for some of the most anticipated characters: Arathorn himself, Elladan & Elrohir, the twin sons of Elrond, and Gilraen, the lad’s Mother. A moment now to speculate dream casting for Gilraen. Our staffer Quickbeam2000 advocated at WonderCon British actress Rosamund Pike (“Gone Girl”) would be ideal. (Here she is in “Hostiles” struggling in the wilderness to protect her baby.) Aragorn the lad had his identity hidden. The secrecy surrounding his lineage was needful to prevent the enemy from slitting his throat in the middle of the night. Imagine a mother trying to protect her child amid such constant fear? Gilraen will be a terrific, meaty role.
Aragorn had more aliases than the talented Mr. Ripley (nod to Cate Blanchette). Each alias, each assumed identity, allows the Amazon writers to explore more facets of this character. Estel. Thorongil. Strider.
Anything about the sacrifices of Gilraen in her efforts to protect Aragorn, and her introducing him to the Elves of Rivendell, will benefit connections to the Jackson films when we see this scene (Aragorn visiting his mother's grave in The Fellowship of the Ring) later, making them much more emotionally resonant.
The political landscape of Rivendell, as we often see in Game of Thrones storylines, will come to fore. We will learn how difficult it was living in the North after the dissolution of Arnor and how the elves navigated a relationship with the descendants of Isildur.
Appendix A “Annals of the Kings & Rulers” gives us so much more about how young Estel was smitten like a kitten when he first laid sight on Arwen. Here we have a HUGE storyline on how they took their tentative first steps towards true (tragic) love.
Amongst all the connective tissue that puts a “young Aragorn” story firmly in a recognizable spot within the Third Age (and there’s a TON of it, thankfully) the biggest that might just give Ringers a seizure, is a full-on moment where Gandalf befriends Strider. Ultimately, given the pieces naturally in place thanks to Tolkien, we can predict a significant milestone to be reached just in Season 1 - that pinnacle of the Appendix stories - the one made into a famous fan film in 2009: the hunt for Gollum.
This bodes well. Whatever initial moves are made here are most crucial. In the words of Frank Herbert from his classic Dune: “A beginning is a very delicate time.” This choice by Amazon Studios to begin their Middle-Earth series with a universally adored character is probably one of the smarter move they could make. A) It allows familiar characters to take center stage, B) It brings in new characters without needing many “non canon” characters to be minted fresh (like Tauriel), C) It plays out in a timeframe close to the 6 films.
This leaves us at a place of wild speculation now. Given this 1st Season context, we must ask: Who will play whom? What kind of Gollum will they design/mo-cap/animate? Omigod what about Howard Shore’s music? We have all the time in the world to guess. But know this: It is significant that the forging of the rings of power and other deeper historical scenarios were not chosen for the opening season. Amazon wants this endeavor to work. They NEED it to be fireproof and they need it to start off STRONG. If there were a better choice to launch a half-billion dollar endeavor, we can’t see it. The entire “young Aragorn” thing offers exactly what the fans want and minimizes risk for the studio. Many of us have been predicting exactly this; and “That is an encouraging thought.”
Jaaaasne. Proc nevybrat jedine casove obdobi o kterem Tolkien v podstate nic nenapsal ... oh wait. Nejspis prave proto.
[BREAKING] We have confirmed from multiple sources that @AmazonStudios new billion-dollar #LOTR series will open its first season centered on a young Aragorn.
Vzhledem k tomu ze je immunni na Jeden prsten myslim ze by se ti upaloval dost tezko.
A new book by British film writer Ian Nathan, Anything You Can Imagine: Peter Jackson & The Making of Middle-Earth, reveals that Harvey Weinstein thought the New Zealand director had “wasted” $12m in developing a two-movie script. Weinstein told Jackson he had to make one two-hour film or he would be replaced by Shakespeare in Love director John Madden, or Quentin Tarantino.
