The Lord of the Rings (LOTR): The War of the Rohirrim Delayed to December 2024

New Line’s animated movie The Lord of the Rings (LOTR): The War of the Rohirrim has been delayed from its original release date of April 12, 2024 to December 13, 2024. The move comes as part of a chain reaction of Warner Bros. re-datings, which was spurred by Legendary Entertainment’s Dune: Part Two moving from November 3, 2023 to March 15, 2024.


The War of the Rohirrim is set 183 years before the events of the original Lord of the Rings (LOTR) trilogy and tells the story of the House of Helm Hammerhand, the mighty King of Rohan. The film will be directed by Kenji Kamiyama and features a voice cast that includes Brian Cox, Gaia Wise, Miranda Otto, and Lorraine Ashbourne.


The delay to December 2024 will give the filmmakers more time to complete the film and will also avoid competing with other major releases, such as Godzilla X Kong: The New Empire, which is also moving to April 12, 2024.

The War of the Rohirrim is executive produced by Oscar winner Philippa Boyens and produced by Joseph Chou. The writing team of Phoebe Gittins and Arty Papageorgiou have penned the screenplay from a script by Jeffrey Addiss & Will Matthews, based on J.R.R. Tolkien‘s book.

The film is still in production and no official trailer has been released yet. However, fans can stay up-to-date on the latest news by following the film on social media.

The Lord of the Rings (LOTR): The War of the Rohirrim is sure to be a must-see for fans of the Lord of the Rings (LOTR) franchise. The film’s delay will only make the anticipation for its release even greater.
