Some new information has surfaced regarding Amazon’s billion-dollar Lord of the Rings series that fans might find interesting. TheOneRing.net is reporting that they have heard from multiple sources that the series will focus on a young version of Aragon.
Aragon was previously played by Viggo Mortensen in Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings film trilogy. The character is the last Chieftain of the Dúnedain and a direct descendant through many generations of Isildur, the last High King of both Arnor and Gondor. Aragorn would become the greatest Man of his time, leading the Men of the West against Sauron’s forces, helping to destroy the One Ring, and reuniting the Kingdoms of Arnor and Gondor.
There’s a whole history behind Aragon that would be awesome to see explored in a series! For those of you who want a little background on the character and some insight into what the series could entail, here’s some information for you:
Aragorn was born in T.A. 2931 to the Chieftain Arathorn, and received the name Aragorn. But his grandmother, Ivorwen, noted with foresight that Aragorn would one day wear on his breast a green stone.
