The original Lord of the Rings trilogy director Peter Jackson says he was never consulted for Prime Video's The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power series.
Jackson directed the first live-action adaptation of the fantasy novels by J.R.R. Tolkien, including 2001's The Fellowship of the Ring, 2002's The Two Towers, and 2003's The Return of the King, which won the Oscar for Best Picture and Best Director in 2004.
Jackson would go on to direct The Hobbit trilogy, which split Tolkien's novel into three parts and was released between 2012 and 2014.
Since that time, Jackson has moved on from the world of Middle-earth, focusing on documentary films, including the WWII doc They Shall Not Grow Old and the Emmy-nominated The Beatles: Get Back mini-series.Read more on screenrant.com
