Back to Middle Earth.
The Lord of the Rings is coming back to the big screen with The War of the Rohirrim, but we do have to wait until 2024 for it.
We’ve recently returned to Middle-earth in Prime Video series The Rings of Power, set thousands of years before The Hobbit. The new movie is also set in the past, but not so far back and takes place 183 years before The Lord of the Rings trilogy.
“It’s a gift to be able to revisit Middle-earth with many of the same creative visionaries and the talented Kenji Kamiyama at the helm. This will be an epic portrayal unlike anything audiences have ever seen,” Warner Bros boss Toby Emmerich told Variety.
As we wait for its 2024 release, here’s everything you need to know about The Lord of the Rings: The War of the Rohirrim.

The Lord of the Rings: The War of the Rohirrim will be out in cinemas on April 12, 2024. The animated film is being developed by New Line Cinema and Warner Bros Animation.
More than 20 years after the end of the original trilogy, it appears that studios are revisiting JRR Tolkien’s series hellbent on exploring every nook and cranny of the world and each mysterious figure and whispered legend found between the pages of the books.
Much of the voice cast has been confirmed, with the exciting return from The Lord of the Rings OG trilogy star Miranda Otto. She will reprise her role as Éowyn, who will serve as the narrator of the film.
Brian Cox (Succession) will lend his distinctive voice to Helm Hammerhand, the King of Rohan.
Joining them are Gaia Wise as Hera, the daughter of Helm, who helps defend their people, Luke Pasqualino as Wulf, the ruthless leader of the Dunlendings who seeks revenge against Rohan for the death of his father Freca (who will be voiced by Shaun Dooley), Laurence Ubong Williams as Fréaláf Hildeson, Helm’s nephew and successor to the throne of Rohan.
Lorraine Ashbourne, Yazdan Qafouri, Benjamin Wainwright, Michael Wildman, Jude Akuwudike, Bilal Hasna, and Janine Duvitski have been cast in undisclosed voice roles too.

Behind the scenes, the movie is being directed by Kenji Kamiyama. Oscar-winner Philippa Boyens, who was part of the original screenwriting team of The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies, will be executive producing alongside producer Joseph Chou.
Also returning for the project will be The Lord of the Rings alums from its creative team, Oscar winner Richard Taylor and Tolkien illustrator John Howe.
The screenplay will be based on a script by Jeffrey Addiss and Will Matthews and will be set around 250 years before the events of the original movie, which is dubbed as the third age, while the new show is set to take place during the second age.
The movie is set to explore the as-yet-untold story of the Helm’s Deep fortress, following the life of the legendary King of Rohan Helm Hammerhand.
Helm and his people are forced to make a brave last stand in the fortress of Hornburg (later known as Helm’s Deep) after ruthless Dunlending Lord Wulf, hellbent on vengeance over his father’s death, launches a surprise attack.
Leading the resistance against Wulf is Helm’s daughter Hera.
Unfortunately, production is still under way on the movie, so it’ll be a while before we see anything from The Lord of the Rings: The War of the Rohirrim yet.
The Lord of the Rings: The War of the Rohirrim is released in cinemas on April 12, 2024, while The Rings of Power is available to watch on Prime Video.
