Peter Jackson earned his renown with The Lord of the Rings trilogy, but that closeness to the project meant he could never enjoy the films himself like audiences did. To understand the joy audiences felt, he “seriously considered” undergoing hypnotherapy to forget making them.
He told The Hollywood Reporter:
While there is evidence to suggest that hypnotherapy works as part of a program to assist with weight loss or to quit smoking, there is little evidence to suggest that it can remove whole swathes of your memory.
It is for this reason that Jackson is keen to see Amazon’s upcoming The Lord of the Rings: Rings of Power. I bet he is thankful now that Amazon, despite promises to send him scripts, never followed through with them.
The Rings of Power is set during the Second Age and will highlight Sauron’s initial rise to power. This is set thousands of years before Jackson’s films so while we get to see some of our Elven favourites, you won’t see Frodo or Aragorn. The show is set to premier on Sept. 2 on Prime Video.
