this big event is coming to France in June

The Lord of the Rings: The War of the Rohirrims is certainly the most anticipated project currently by fans of the saga. For the moment, very few images and information have leaked. But now a few months before the release of the film, things are finally speeding up and we have just learned that an important event will take place in France in June to present the first images and certainly the trailer.

France and The Lord of the Rings

While we hoped that the first images of the Lord of the Rings: War of the Rohirrims would be presented at Cannes this month, the information has just fallen: it is at the Annecy Animation Festival that the first images of the film will be presented exclusively. The film thus continues a form of tradition around the saga since it was in 2000, at the Cannes Film Festival, that Peter Jackson revealed the first images of the first film during a gigantic and historic event. In fact, the film’s production house, New Line, had spent two million dollars on the festivities, rented the Castellaras castle and brought together 1,000 privileged people to sell the film more effectively internationally.


Later, it was once again France that had the right to the world premiere of the film The Two Towers even before the United States or New Zealand (where the film was shot). And this time again, things were not done by halves since the first images of The Rohirrim War will also be at the center of an important event during the Annecy Festival.

Gollum as guest star

This year’s Annecy International Animated Film Festival will take place from June 9 to 15 in France. The new animated Lord of the Rings film will be highlighted there by Warner Bros, which seems very confident about this ambitious project. Warner Bros. Animation, Cartoon Network Studios and Hanna-Barbera Studios Europe have therefore shared their plans for the annual animation festival. Among the planned events, Andy Serkis (who played Gollum in the previous films) will host a conversation with the filmmakers and will present an in-depth overview of the Lord of the Rings: War of the Rohirrims.

This highly anticipated film is indeed the result of the joint work of New Line Cinema and Warner Bros. Animation. Director Kenji Kamiyama and producers Philippa Boyens, Joseph Chou and Jason DeMarco will participate in the discussion and will present the first images from the film that Warner Bros. plans to hit theaters on December 13.

However, the animation process is not yet complete and is currently in progress. The Lord of the Rings: War of the Rohirrims focuses on the fortress of Fort-le-Cor and its founder, Helm Hand-Marteau, the king of Rohan. We also know that theThe film should be introduced as a story told by the character Éowyn always played by Miranda Otto. The presence of the actress serves as a reminder that this film is therefore well connected to the original cinematographic saga which Warner now wishes to expand.

Sauron’s Eye Looking to the Future

The presence of Andy Serkis should allow a double event, since not only the guests present will be able to benefit from his insightful look at the saga, but also question him about the future of the franchise in cinema. The fact that, at this stage, we do not know the degree of involvement of Serkis on The Lord of the Rings: War of the Rohirrims, however, we know that after having been a second unit director on the Hobbit saga, he will soon be the director of the brand new film: The Hunt for Gollum. Indeed, last week, Warner Bros. announced that this new live-action Lord of the Rings film was already in development and should even be released in 2026.
