One of the most-exciting aspects of this annoucement for Tolkien fans is Embracer’s suggestion that it will explore “additional movies based on iconic characters such as Gandalf, Aragorn, Gollum, Galadriel, Éowyn and other characters from Tolkien’s literary works.”

Remember "Solo"?

As a famous wizzard said, "Could be wonderful, will be terrible."
His philosophy was a mixture of three famous schools -- the Cynics, the Stoics and the Epicureans -- and summed up all three of them in his famous phrase, 'You can't trust any bugger further than you can throw him, and there's nothing you can do about it, so let's have a drink."

At this point, I'm all for it. Would love to see an in-depth series on Aragorn if it tells the proper story, not the Peter Jackson edit of the story.

At least with those characters they will have more canon material to work with.

I feel the artists got sloppy by not replacing the gun with an arrow or something.
