We don’t have much information on The Lord of the Rings: The War of the Rohirrimbut we know that the story is set about 250 years before the journey of Frodo Baggings and companions towards Mordor, and thus during the Third Age. At the center of the film, inspired by the appendices of the trilogy by J.RR Tolkienthere is the story of Helm’s Deep and its founder Helm Hammerhand. This one, who in the Italian version is called Helm Hammerheadwas leading the horse people, i Rohirrim precisely. Helm’s Deep is located in Middle-earth in the kingdom of Rohan north-west of Ered Nimrais (White Mountains). The place hosts one of the largest fortresses in the region, the Trombatorrione. Here’s how he describes it Tolkien neither The two Towers:
On the opposite side of the Vallata Ovestfalda, there was a green basin, a large bay in the mountains, which penetrated the hills through a gorge. The inhabitants of that district called it the Deep of Helm, from the name of a hero of ancient wars who had taken refuge there.
The Lord of the Rings: The War of the Rohirrim is directed by Kenji Kamiyama and the script is by Phoebe Gittins And Arty Papageorgiou. The voices of the characters have not yet been disclosed. It produces the New Line Cinema, as has already happened for the films of Lord of the Rings and for the trilogy de The Hobbit.
By The Lord of the Rings: The War of the Rohirrim it has been said that it will give new life to the story of the One Ring. Maybe later The Hobbit – An Unexpected Journey and related sequels, which have not had the hoped-for success, New Line is keen to play it safe.
