Men [In reply to] Can't Post

Men because I expect the lead character will be Aragorn or one of his forebears (and, btw, Beornings are Men).

Maybe they'll do something interesting and have multiple POV's. [In reply to] Can't Post

Fans divide up into folks who identify with men, elves, dwarves, wizards, hobbits and orcs. Dragons? Within each episode, or having a different one for each episode as at least five loooong seasons are planned, we each get to buy in - and make our costumes. Laugh

I'm not sure [In reply to] Can't Post

I like to think that Tolkien wrote from the perspective of Hobbits but was heavily influenced by Elves, while Jackson's movies are from the perspective of Hobbits and Men. But to answer this question, it would depend on what stories they tell. If it's The Adventures of Young Aragorn, that could be interesting from both the Men perspective and the Elven.

I'm not sure how an Elven perspective on the adventures of Aragorn would work. Legolas as a sidekick?

Legolas the Mighty
Roams through the countryside
He never needs a place to hide
A Ranger as his sidekick
Fighting with a little stick
Righting wrongs and singing songs
Being mighty all day long
He's Legolas Legolas the Mighty!


Eru help us!

You're joking, right? [In reply to] Can't Post

Of course you are. I suppose a combination of races should be included - I have a thing for Dwarves, you know!HeartEvil





But I expect the main POV to be from the race of Men; just a hunch you know. Of course Tolkien was all about Hobbits, wasn't he? It really depends on what Amazon means when they talk about the Appendices and events that happened prior to the Fellowship. And stop calling me Shirley!
