The movie will likely be referred to as The Lord of the Rings: The Warfare of the Rohirrim, and it’ll cowl the historical past behind the fortress at Helm’s Deep — whose battle is one of the most fun elements of the complete authentic trilogy with its exploding partitions, protect browsing, and unimaginable horse stunts.
In case you want your reminiscence jogged:

Whereas the names behind the movie are attention-grabbing, it doesn’t appear to be Warner Brothers or New Line are going deep into the Tolkien properly for story concepts — the occasions Rohirrim will likely be depicting are just a few hundred years earlier than the battle depicted in The Two Towers. Evaluate that with, say, Amazon’s Lord of the Rings present, which is set in the Second Age, manner earlier than the Warfare of the Ring — the characters in the anime movie could also be unfamiliar to most viewers, however the world will seemingly be fairly comparable to what we’ve already seen. After all, there’s nonetheless room for this venture to be attention-grabbing, however maybe it could’ve been extra thrilling if we have been getting a narrative about one thing like the Silmarils or the fall of the Númenor.
