The fever for Middle-earth and the stories created by JRR Tolkien is about to return thanks to ‘The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power’. The Amazon Prime Video series premieres on September 2, marking our return to this fantasy world eight years after the end of the trilogy of ‘The Hobbit’ by Peter Jackson.
The New Zealander will always be related to Middle-earth because he was the one who managed to bring ‘The Lord of the Rings’ and ‘The Hobbit’ to the big screen, taking three Oscars along the way: Best film, direction and adapted screenplay for ‘The Return of the King’. Thanks to a recent interview with the filmmaker we discovered that He was looking for a way to forget his time in the franchise, and he seriously considered resorting to hypnosis to achieve it. Why fed up? Because of a bad memory? No. Her reasons were much more romantic.
This was explained in a Hollywood Reporter podcast: “When we made the ‘Lord of the Rings’ movies I always felt like the unluckiest person because I could never be caught off guard by the movies.. When they began to project I would already have been inside for five or six years. It was a loss for me not to be able to see them like any neighbor’s son. I seriously considered going to hypnotherapy to be hypnotized and made to forget about the movies and work that I had done for the last six or seven years, so that I could sit back and enjoy them.. I didn’t go through with the idea, but I did talk to Derren Brown about it and he thought he could do it.”. Derren Brown is a British mentalist and illusionist, winner of two Laurence Olivier Awards.
If you don’t want to forget them…
Jackson didn’t carry out his plan, which sounds pretty delusional, it must be said. Although it’s not the same has available on Amazon Prime Video the films of ‘The Lord of the Rings’ in 4K version with the remastering that he himself supervised. The trilogy is also part of the HBO Max catalog, in this case in its normal HD version.
