The series made history long before the first two episodes launched on Thursday night, as it is considered the most expensive series of all time.

The show’s inception dates back to July 2017, when a grueling lawsuit between Warner Bros. – the studio behind the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit films – and the JRR Tolkien Estate, has been settled.

Both the studio and the estate began offering the franchise’s television rights to streaming services, with Amazon quickly becoming a leader.

Amazon co-founder Jeff Bezos previously told streaming service Prime Video that he wanted a large-scale franchise.

Bezos was also reportedly a huge fan of the franchise and was personally involved in negotiations for the rights alone, which were eventually acquired in November 2017 for the colossal sum of $250 million.

Amazon also struck a deal with the Tolkien Estate and the Tolkien Trust where they would have greenlit more than five seasons of the show.

With an estimated production commitment of between $100 million and $150 million per season, Amazon would have to shell out $1 billion for production costs and rights, ultimately.

The series was created by Patrick McKay and JD Payne, who previously only worked on Star Trek: Beyond in 2016 as uncredited writers.

The duo launched a series that would be set in the Second Age of Middle-earth, a story glossed over in a five-minute prologue during the Lord of the Rings movies.

They wanted to expand this to around 50 hours of television, which would include the forging of the rings of power, the rise of the dark lord Sauron, the fall of the island kingdom Numenor, and the final alliance between men and elves.

There will be characters that fans will recognize, however, including Galadriel, played in Cate Blanchett’s LOTR films, with the much younger version played by Morfydd Clark.

There have been rumors that a white-haired character shown in the trailers, played by Bridie Sisson (previously believed to be Anson Boon), is actually Sauron himself, although the producers have not confirmed this. .

Executive producer Lindsey Weber neither confirmed nor denied Sisson’s character, she gave Time a hint about her origins.

“We take advantage of all the speculation online and can tell you that Bridie Sisson is an amazing actor,” Weber began.

“We also thought fans would like to know that his character travels far east from the lands of Rhûn…” Weber teased.
