The Lord of the Rings: The War of the Rohirrim Trailer

The official trailer is not yet released but here is the teaser of The Lord of the Rings: The War of the Rohirrim.

The Lord of the Rings: The War of the Rohirrim Plot

The anime movie is directed by Kenji Kamiyama who took inspiration from J.R.R. Tolkien’s books, The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings as well as Peter Jackson’s films. The movie is set 183 years before the original Lord of the Rings trilogy and focuses on Helm Hammerhand, a legendary king of Rohan. As he and his family defend their kingdom against an army of Dunlendings, he becomes the namesake for Helm’s Deep.

Director Kenji emphasizes the themes of power and legacy in the story of Rohan’s most formidable king. He said, “This is the story of the most powerful king in Rohan’s history, someone who defeated his enemies with his bare fists. Why did his lineage have to end with him?”

He continued, “I think there is a lesson in hubris there and also for a need for responsibility and awareness in their power. We live in an age where, all over the world, we face the reality of war again. What, then, is power? What is the responsibility of those who possess it? It is something they need to think about by thinking together with those who don’t.”

The movie is produced by New Line Cinema, Sola Entertainment, and Warner Bros. Animation. Jackson and Fran Walsh are the executive producers for the movie while Philippa Boyens, Joseph Chou, and Jason DeMarco are the producers.
