I think by the time this ever happens, [In reply to] Can't Post

the Tolkien Estate will be in new hands and maybe a little friendlier toward the film industry. But going back to an animated series, I can't help but think of Star Wars: Clone Wars, the original Cartoon Network microseries. There was very little dialog. Most of the show was just action. The reason why I think this could work for The Silmarillion is because the book tends to tell what happens, not what everyone is thinking and saying as it happens. It would be very boring with real people acting, but if the art and music were done correctly and the pacing was right, I think it could be really successful.

    Personally I'm (almost)completely against any more of Tolkien's books being adapated...but if they had to do it then Animation would be the way to go malickfan Send a private message to malickfan Aug 6 2013, 6:51pm
