Wayne Yip, who we know from Doctor Who and Doom Patrol, participated in The Lord of the Rings series. Yip directed J.A., who directed the first two episodes. It will take over from Bayona.
A new director has joined Amazon’s highly anticipated Lord of the Rings series. Wayne Che Yip, a rising figure in recent times, has been the director for four episodes of the show’s first season, according to official statements today.
When we look at Wayne Che Yip’s previous work, we see successful productions such as Doctor Who, Doom Patrol and Preacher. The 40-year-old British director is also currently director of two episodes of Amazon’s other high-budget project, The Wheel of Time.
“It’s a real honor to be invited into the world of J.D. & amp; Patrick’s Tolkien,” wayne yip was quoted as saying. I start every day with great excitement to be working with this incredible team here in New Zealand as we try to make our humble contributions to the legacy of the greatest story in history,” he said.
Amazon began its Lord of the Rings project in 2017, the world’s most expensive series, on a budget of $1 billion. After nearly three years of preparation, filming for the series began in February 2020. Afterwards, filming was halted due to the pandemic and resumed in September.
Amazon has yet to announce the show’s release date, but there are expectations that the first season could air later this year. Amazon has also already confirmed a second season of the show.
Set thousands of years before the films, The Lord of the Rings series will take viewers on a fantastic journey from the depths of the Misty Mountains to lindon, the capital of elves, and the legendary island kingdom of Numenor. The series will reportedly feature the dark lord Melkor and Sauron.
