Dreaming about a Silmarillion anime… Anyone with me?



  • Wouldn't it be amazing if an episodic anime was made of the Silmarillion?

    If it was done right, I think it would be glorious. Even if it was just an anime about the fall of Gondolin, I would throw my money at it. I know it probably won't happen… but I want to fantasize about it. If anyone else does too, let us gather our thoughts together here and bond through our mutual wish. :)



  • Confession: I really enjoyed the Rankin Bass versions of Return of the King and The Hobbit, so I would want some continuity there, though Rankin Bass aren't really animating anymore, as far as I can tell. I would definitely watch the Sil in animated form, but I'm not DYING for it.

    From a business standpoint, I would be very surprised if anyone in Japan was interested in pursuing the rights for it. It would be such a complicated tale to tell in English, never mind trying to translate it into Japanese.

    Edited to add: This reminds me, I still haven't found a copy of The Flight of Dragons. I've been wanting to see that again for a while.
