Why did Amazon’s “Lord of the Rings” season 1 cost $465 million?

The “Lord of the Rings” prequel by-product series is currently being produced on Amazon Prime Video. It was revealed last month that the production of the first season will cost US$465 million (approximately Rs 3408 crore), which is jaw-dropping. In a new interview, Jennifer Salke, the head of Amazon Pictures, clarified that the astronomical budget of “Lord of the Rings” is attributed to the required “huge world architecture”-from the Middle-earth environment to the costumes and props. Wait, for many people participating in the various roles of LOTR-this has to do with “truly building the infrastructure that will support the entire series.”

Those who have followed Amazon’s “Lord of the Rings” from the beginning will know that this fits with the overall plans and estimates that have been known for more than three years. According to reports, in April 2018, Amazon made a five-season commitment to the “Lord of the Rings” prequel series, during which it will spend more than $1 billion. In addition, Amazon paid the copyright to Tolkien Estate for 250 million U.S. dollars (about 18.32 billion rupees) in November 2017 alone. Since then, Amazon’s LOTR has been the most expensive series ever.

When asked about the $465 million figure for the first season of “Lord of the Rings,” Salke told the Hollywood Reporter: “This is the entire season of a huge global architectural show.” That expenditure. “This number is an interesting title or a crazy title. It’s interesting to click on them, but it’s really building the infrastructure that can support the entire series. […] As for how many people need to watch “Lord of the Rings”? a lot of. A huge global audience needs to appear on dating TV, and we are very confident about it. “

In addition to the fact that $464 million will build a runway for all future seasons, you must also consider that Season 1 of The Lord of the Rings is not like a typical prestige drama. Although most large budget TV shows (such as Game of Thrones, The Mandalorian, Crown and Falcon and Winter Soldier) have 6 to 10 episodes per season, the first season of “Lord of the Rings” will have 20 episodes. It’s like two seasons of “The Throne” or three seasons of the “Marvel” series. Moreover, LOTR’s budget is easier to understand when you consider that their cost per episode is between 15-25 million U.S. dollars (approximately 109-18.3 billion rupees).

But then again, their stars will all play an important role. Later, the cost of each episode of “Game of Thrones” was $15 million. The price of Amazon’s “Lord of the Rings” is higher than the initial price. When its star becomes a household name in its depths, what will it become?
