The Lord of the Rings trilogy is one of the highest-grossing movies of all time, but the previous trilogy, The Hobbit Film Trio, also did well upon exit. These are high-budget movies, so they were also expected to do well, which Tolkien guarantees, then after the success of the Lord of the Rings films, the director’s name was Peter Jackson. What the Amazon Middle Ages series will produce is still a good question, however Report by The Hollywood Reporter Accordingly, it may be (one of) the most expensive series of all time.
THR elegantly stated that all the gold on Lonely Mountain would be necessary to make Season 1 only. The paper learns from a trusted source, Stuart Nash, New Zealand’s Minister of Economic Development and Tourism, that Amazon is spending roughly NZ $ 650 million for the first season, which is not a small amount in US dollars: roughly. $ 465 million. It was previously estimated that the manufacturer of the series could clap half a billion for several seasons, but recent information from The Hollywood Reporter far outweighs that. According to the report, the plan is to shoot 5 seasons in New Zealand, but later seasons may be cheaper because some groups and costumes only need to be produced once. However, the total budget could still exceed $ 1 billion.
The Lord of the Rings trilogy totaled roughly. $ 300 million, while The Hobbits had a budget of $ 200-300 million per movie. Battle of Thrones, which also belongs to the fantasy genre, lasts for about. It damaged up to $ 100 million and by the eighth season it had already consumed $ 15 million per episode. So the amount is huge, and local government budget managers also consider “investment” (tax credit) risky, but for example, money spent on the series can easily come from tourism generated by the filming location.
The Lord of the Rings series is already being produced by Amazon and set to be presented in 2021. Although, according to Elijah Wood, it shouldn’t be called The Lord of the Rings, because it happens much earlier. The series was developed by J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay, and you can browse the busy actor camp here.
