The Lord of the Rings is, of course, coming to Amazon's streaming in the form of a television series, which this information was revealed last year. We'll new info has revealed that Amazon will be bringing some original characters fans already connected with and love back. 
 
In a recent interview with Amazon Studios head, Jennifer Salke revealed a few things about the direction that the TV series is going with Deadline. Deadline asked if the series will follow the same exact characters from the three films and Salke replied:
 
"I think you can know that we’re not remaking the movies, but we’re also not starting from scratch. So, it’ll be characters you love."
 
Amazon confirmed that J.R.R. Tolkiens series was given the same huge budget that the original films series was given in the 2000s under Peter Jackson. So bringing back the likes original Fellowship characters like Gandalf and more should be easy. Even bringing back the actors should also. Still, that may be unlikely seeing that Salke stated they aren't trying to remake the movies. 
 
Salke also revealed if Peter Jackson would be involved in the tv series. Jackson stated: 
 
"The Peter Jackson conversations, right now we’re right in the middle of them. It’s like, how much do you want to be involved, how little? I know there’s been some discussion, and he’s even said some things, but as far as I’m aware, the latest is that we’re just in a conversation with him about how much or how little he would be involved."
 
This is good news obviously. Jackson did make the original trilogy the powerhouse it is today. Jackson's directing skills are unquestionable and his ability to bring the series to life is something that wowed me as a small boy when I first saw the series. With Jackson may be getting involved, the series just may outdo the movies even though there should be no competition between the two. 
 
The official release date for 'The Lord of the Rings' is currently unknown or yet to be announced.
