New story details emerge from The Lord of the Rings: The War of the Rohirrim

Speaking with Entertainment Weekly, The Lord of the Rings: The War of the Rohirrim director Kenji Kamiyama said of the movie, “This is the story of the most powerful king in Rohan’s history, someone who defeated his enemies with his bare fists. Why did his lineage have to end with him? I think there is a lesson in hubris there and also for a need for responsibility and awareness in their power. We live in an age where, all over the world, we face the reality of war again. What, then, is power? What is the responsibility of those who possess it? It is something they need to think about by thinking together with those who don’t.” 

Producer Philippa Boyens added, “In the appendices where the story is drawn from, we get these quite interestingly drawn male characters, and then we get this young female character who is never named — and that was really interesting to me. We know Helm has a daughter, and we know that she was central to the conflict that happened. But myself, and especially screenwriter Phoebe Gittins, were drawn to her. We could feel the weight of being that unnamed daughter, which immediately piqued our interest: Who was she? How did she live?”

The voice cast for The Lord of the Rings: The War of the Rohirrim includes Brian Cox as Helm Hammerhand, Gaia Wise as Hèra, Luke Pasqualino as Wulf, Miranda Otto as Éowyn, and Shaun Dooley as Freca.

Boyens further teased “an exceptionally great antagonist” in the character of Wulf. She added, “He speaks so directly to a lot of the crises that we’re facing today. He’s a really fascinating character and exciting too. You don’t know what he’s going to do, and some of the choices that he makes are just breathtaking in a good way.”

The Lord of the Rings: The War of the Rohirrim releases in United States theaters on December 13, 2024.
