You really have a chance, if the Estate remembers previous productions with the BBC, after the fuss over New Line dies down over the next decade. Maybe sometime in the late 20’s. I thought that this should have been produced by the BBC when I first read The Silmarillion in the mid-Seventies.

Great idea and I like your storyline. I always imagined King Dior Eluchil like Thranduil as rendered by Lee Pace. But will you ever find someone to represent Maedhros and his brothers? I like Caranthir, although I want to kick his butt, most of the time. And I really believe in the version where one of the twins gets burnt along with the ships. Féanor should be played by Tom Hiddlestone, as a maniac. A mammoth project!
If you’re interested, Maedhros looks almost exactly like Michael Fassbender to my mind’s eye 😉
When I saw this I was hella excited and maybe a tad bit disappointed because I thought it was real but I love the work you’ve put into it trying to make a storyline out of the Silmarillion. One thing I’m quite conflicted over is the Celeborn/Galadriel part; weren’t they supposed to meet up in Beleriand? Like Celeborn to my knowledge has never seen the two trees, of the Sindar only Thingol might has?
There are conflicting stories about Galadriel and Celeborn. In the published Silmarillion Christopher Tolkien chose the Doriath version but in Unfinished Tales (The History of Galadriel and Celeborn) there’s a version where they meet in Alqualonde and Galadriel goes her own way to Middle-earth instead of crossing the Helcaraxe. It gave Galadriel more to do rather than just being one of the crowd so I included that version, I find it more interesting.
I see thanks for explaining, and it is a unique take since most people tend to follow the silmarillion version rather than the unfinished tales one.
Anybody here is up for the challenge? I’m a film maker, and I’d love to make a pilot episode of this! Especially now that Lotr is getting relaunched as a tv show. I think a great pilot would be Feanor’s ‘rebellion’ and the Nordor’s return to Beleriand.
I’m actually also considering making a pilot for a silmarillion series, would be so amazing…
