The rumors that Amazon is working on a television series on Lord of the Rings in an attempt to create the next “Game of Thrones,” were confirmed. From Amazon announced that has acquired the rights to Lord of the Rings to create a series. Amazon Studios will produce television series for several seasons in collaboration with New Line Cinema, Tolken Estate and HarperCollins.

Those novels were previously adapted into an Oscar-winning film series (starting with “The Fellowship of the Ring” in 2001). Some fans are speculating that could mean an adaptation of “The Silmarillion,” a posthumously published prequel to “The Lord of the Rings” by Tolkien. The multi-season series will also include series that follow other stories in the same universe.

Bezos tweeted the “Lord of the Rings” announcement Monday afternoon, writing  “Amazon Prime heads to Middle Earth.”

“‘The Lord of the Rings’ is a cultural phenomenon that has captured the imagination of generations of fans through literature and the big screen. We are honored to be working with the Tolkien Estate and Trust, HarperCollins and New Line on this exciting collaboration for television and are thrilled to be taking ‘The Lord of the Rings’ fans on a new epic journey in Middle Earth.”
