Rumor: Amazon's Lord of the Rings Will Focus on Young Aragorn

It seems like our journey back to Middle-Earth might feature the return of a fan-favorite character. While very little is known about Amazon Studios' highly-anticipated Lord of the Rings prequel television series, a new rumor has surfaced claiming that the series will center around a young Aragorn.

Earlier today, expert Lord of the Rings news reporting website TheOneRing.net tweeted that they had breaking news on their hands. "We have confirmed from multiple sources that @AmazonStudios new billion-dollar #LOTR series will open its first season centered on a young Aragorn," the tweet read.

Since this hasn't been confirmed by any official press releases, it's important to file this news under rumor for the time being. However, the long-standing website has a credible history of reporting Lord of the Rings-related news, which means that there might be truth to these claims.

Played by Viggo Mortensen in the original Lord of the Rings trilogy, Aragorn became a fan-favorite character in the fantasy epic. As the rightful King of Gondor and all men, the character has deeply-rooted history in Middle-Earth which would make for a fascinating prequel series.
