Orlando Bloom has mentioned that the upcoming Lord Of The Rings TV adaptation is “not a remake” of the hit movie trilogy, which he believes to be “a very good factor”.

“I had a number of questions for him to start with… after which I used to be like, ‘, I don’t must know any extra’,” he mentioned within the video chat, which you’ll watch beneath.
“It’s not, clearly, it’s not a remake. It’s truly not primarily based on The Fellowship or any of that. So I feel it may very well be actually, actually attention-grabbing from that perspective,” Bloom defined.
“I bear in mind being on set with Peter Jackson and him saying, ‘Are you able to think about the day once they do a remake of this film?’ And I used to be like [looks flabbergasted]. After which in fact right here we’re, 20 years later, but it surely’s not a remake.”
He continued: “The Lord of the Rings is a title for a world. However I feel it’s going to be attention-grabbing from that perspective – as a result of if it was a remake I’d be like, ‘Are you going to take us again into Hobbiton?’
“It was such an informative time, it had such an influence so it’s totally different what’s coming and I feel that’s a very good factor.”
