  • “The Lord of the Rings” director Peter Jackson is not part of the Amazon series.
  • Now the Oscar winner reveals that he was even asked – and then ghosted.
  • However, he doesn’t hold any grudges against Amazon or the series creators, instead he’s looking forward to the series.

Since the fantasy series The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power was announced at the end of 2017, there have been rumors that director Peter Jackson, whose The Lord of the Rings trilogy won numerous Oscars, is involved. But as it gradually turned out, he was not part of the Amazon Prime Video series project. Now he reveals why it didn’t happen.

In the Awards Chatter Podcast from the US magazine The Hollywood Reporter, Peter Jackson confirmed that Amazon actually contacted him – and then ghosted him.

You asked me if we [Drehbuchautorin und Produzentin Fran Walsh] and I want to be involved, and I said, ‘That’s an impossible question to answer without reading the scripts.’ So they said, ‘As soon as we have the first scripts, we’ll send them over.’ And the scripts never arrived.

However, the Oscar winner was not offended or upset: “I look at it. I’m not like wishing bad things on others. Making films is hard enough. If someone makes a good film or a good series, you should celebrate. What I’m looking forward to is watching the show as a completely neutral viewer.”

Kicking off September 2nd with Amazon Prime Video’s What’s New program, Peter Jackson – like all of us – can make up his mind about the latest foray into Middle-earth. “The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power” Season 2 is already in the works!

The series takes place more than 3,000 years before Peter Jackson’s films, but “The Rings of Power” Season 1 doesn’t have to do without well-known characters. From Galadriel to Sauron, there are quite a few characters in The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power that you’ll recognize from the movies!
