The Tolkien Estate reportedly didn't want Peter Jackson to be involved with Prime Video's upcoming The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power.

Based on J. R. R. Tolkien's epic fantasy novels, The Rings of Power is set to mark the third major live-action adaptation of the beloved source material after Jackson's The Lord of the Rings trilogy and The Hobbit trilogy.

The highly-anticipated series takes place hundreds of years before the events of Jackson's trilogy, chronicling the rise of evil in the Second Age of Middle-earth.

The show is created by Patrick McKay and John D. Payne. The two have previously gone on record about the fact that, while they admire Jackson's The Lord of the Rings trilogy, they're not looking to compete with it with The Rings of Power.
