The Lord of the Rings

Amazon Prime’s new TV series, The Lord of the Rings, has resumed production in New Zealand. We are all familiar with the films adapted from J.R.R. Tolkien’s original book series, but the TV series will mark a new beginning for fans. The series was allowed to resume production via the New Zealand government. 

Tomb Raider 2

A sequel to the 2018 version of Tomb Raider has released filming plans for the future. While they’re not beginning production immediately, the film is planning to start production in 2021. With the new year right around the corner, this will be coming fast! The film stars Alicia Vikander as the infamous Lara Croft, a role once played by Angelina Jolie. 

The Mighty Ducks

The sequel to the popular 90s film, The Mighty Ducks, has been set to resume production this week. People have been paying attention to this Disney+ film since it was first announced. Starring Emilio Estevez, streamers are hoping everything goes well although Disney has yet to name a release date. 

A Million Little Things

This ABC television series has also resumed production this week according to the network. This drama series follows a group of friends from Boston who have been brought together through a surprising event. Filming in Vancouver, the show’s third season is set to premiere November 19th.

It sounds like great things are underway in the production world and we can’t wait to see what is next! What shows or films are you looking forward to coming out?
