Saw the movie, one recurring thought was “do all the people in the theatre understand the references this movie is making?”

Earendil is referenced, as is Beren and Luthien, same with Morgoth I...

The Akallabeth has quite a lot of GOT esque elements if only by implications. However GOT’s style and thematic atmosphere do not fit Tolkien even in that context.

Thing is, Amazon wants to make...

Well she did convert to Catholicism to be with him, not sure how the movie will go about portraying that.

Anyway I'm sure I'll see it.

From what I have heard, Colm Meaney will be playing the catholic priest that was integral to his upbringing.

I'm not sure how much emphasis they will devote to that, but at least they are showing...

You'd have to prove you were reincarnated and that the past life was you and if you couldn't do that, your suit would be dismissed.

I hear the latest date for this to air is in 2021. As the deal is production has to start within a certain timeframe else the Tolkien estate walks away with all the money.

Amazon is probably busy...

That has to be my favorite change as well.

And I agree this scene really underlies Gandalf speaking with authority-he introduces himself, and commands the Balrog to "go back to the shadow".

If they want a GOT political intrigue story-at least partially, the downfall of Numenor would be one of the best periods and places to do it.

I think Jackson's films did an all around good job, where they perfect? No but I was satisfied with them. Maybe its just because I'm not a die hard when it comes to this sort of thing.

I guess you could do that and tie it into the LOTR movie prologue. Maybe get Cate Blanchett to narrate again.
