The rights to The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit have only just been purchased by colossal holdings company Embracer Group but the company is already talking about spin-off films starring Gandalf, Aragorn, Gollum, and more.
“Other opportunities include exploring additional movies based on iconic characters such as Gandalf, Aragorn, Gollum, Galadriel, Eowyn, and other characters from the literary works of J.R.R. Tolkien,” Embracer said.
This is akin to upcoming video game The Lord of the Rings: Gollum, which features the familiar character but as a version apparently based directly on the books’ lore, and not the movie interpretation.
It will also “continue to provide new opportunities for fans to explore this fictive world through merchandising and other experiences.”
