JD Payne discusses Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones

Fans of The Lord of the Rings are deeply speculating, examining every aspect of the series, The Rings of Power, to unravel the fantasy setting of the planned spinoff, and wondering if the project will follow in the footsteps of Game of Thrones. The fantasy genre, according to the show’s co-creator JD Payne, is the only thing that ties the two programmes together.

Payne speaks candidly about travelling the world and the strain that comes with it.s, “Tolkien left a lot of room for exploration, and we needed to make sure that we were finding what was there, but filling the holes in Tolkien way. We ended up consulting a lot of experts and the Tolkien family to make sure that when we were inventing, we were doing it in a way that was respectful”.
