In the history of Movies all over the world, J. R. R. Tolkien’s Lord of The Rings is probably one of the greatest ever. The movie was so widely accepted that it gains recognition for years and is still very much loved all over the world.
The fans of Lord of the Rings have recently become very active in different communities, ever since Amazon announced that they will be starting a new Lord of The Rings series. One thing we are sure of is that people are excited about it! However, there will be a little difference in the new series. The story will now focus on Aragorn, and a version of Aragorn that is younger than the one we have been used to in the past.
Viggo Mortensen, who had consistently taken the role of Aragorn in the films, was granted the opportunity to air his thoughts about the new development while on an interview. He was particularly excited about the focus on his character in the new series without particular regard for the person who acts the role. There is almost no chance that he will play the role again because he is older than he was in the original movie, and this will focus on a younger version of Aragorn. However, he had some advice for whoever was going to play the role. He mentioned that for the person to be able to execute the role properly, he has to read the book, Lord of the Rings, carefully and thoroughly. He said that he has to read other Nordic Sagas to familiarize himself with the kind of activities common in the age, and to understand his role properly.
Viggo Mortensen could say this because at the time that he got the role in the original Lord of the Rings, he was a replacement for someone who did not quite understand the role or Aragorn. Stuart Townsend was supposed to act the role originally, but he had a lot of issues understanding the story and his role in the short period. The Aragorn role is a very complicated and crucial role that has to be taken by someone who is flexible enough to adapt to entirely new things in a short period. Stuart Townsend was dropped for Viggo Mortensen only few days before the production began.
He admitted that the role, and the whole story freaked him out at the start, because he had never read the book or heard the story. But, as soon as he began to read it, he fell in love with it. This was while he was on his flight to the production sight, and he began to get into the role at that point. Although the news of Amazon’s new huge investment in the Lord of The Rings series has circulated through the internet and the world at large, news coming show that the series will not start filming until later the 2020s. The series has been said to cost over a billion dollars in production, and this will make it the most expensive movie project in history.
