Middle Earth expands its universe. Before the premiere of the animated anime film ‘The Lord of the Rings: The War of the Rohirrim’ which will take place on December 13, 2024, the second season of ‘The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power’ will arrive, which will land on Prime Video on August 29. But the big surprise has been the announcement by Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema of a new film focused on one of the most iconic characters in JRR Tolkien’s literary saga: Gollum.

Addressing Gandalf and Aragorn’s pursuit of the pitiful creature, ‘The Lord of the Rings: The Hunt for Gollum’, which will arrive in 2026, will feature Andy Serkis in the direction and Peter Jackson in the production. Now, the person who was responsible for the original trilogy as well as the prequel trilogy of ‘The Hobbit’ has spoken out about this new adventure.

The character of Gollum/Sméagol has always fascinated me because Gollum reflects the worst of human nature, while his Sméagol side is possibly quite empathetic. I think he connects with both readers and movie audiences, because we all have a little bit of both.“, he explained in an interview for Deadline.

“We are looking forward to exploring his story and delving into the parts of his journey that we didn’t have time to cover in the previous films. “It’s too early to know who will cross their path, but suffice it to say that we will be guided by Professor Tolkien.”

Serkis’ passion for Middle Earth

For now, specific details about the script, which is in the initial writing phase. It will tell us, however, how Gandalf and Aragorn pursued the creature Gollum across Middle-earth to gather information before it fell into the hands of the enemy, the Dark Lord Sauron. These events took place before ‘The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring’ and after ‘The Hobbit’. About himself Actors and actresses from the previous trilogies will return to ‘The Hunt for Gollum’, is still unclear.

Jackson will not direct the film this time and will hand over the baton for the first time in the saga to an old acquaintance, Andy Serkis, with whom He maintains a beautiful friendship since he played Gollum and served as second unit director on ‘The Hobbit.’ “He has the energy and the imagination and, most importantly, an inherent understanding of history of the world it takes to return to Middle Earth“concluded the New Zealander, celebrating Serkis’ passion for this universe.
