Welcome back to another round of Tolkien Tuesday, when I (your host) provide y’all with the best Lord of the Rings memes I’ve seen this week. And lemme tell ya, some weeks are better than others. While I was on vacation it was announced that Warner Brothers would be getting in on the Lord of the Rings action by creating some new films based in the universe. It’s been made very clear that the films would not be remakes of the Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies, with Warner Bros Co-CEOS Michael De Luca and Pam Addy explaining as follows:
“For all the scope and detail lovingly packed into the two trilogies, the vast, complex and dazzling universe dreamed up by J.R.R. Tolkien remains largely unexplored on film. The opportunity to invite fans deeper into the cinematic world of Middle-earth is an honor, and we are excited to partner with Middle-earth Enterprises and Embracer on this adventure.”
Despite the statement’s comforting reveal, fans seem to be pretty ticked off about this development – which comes as no surprise if you think back to all the backlash surrounding Amazon’s Rings of Power prequel series. This week, many of the memes surrounded the drama, but we’ve still managed to find some that feature the simple stupidity that we know and love. Enjoy.
