The Lord Of The Rings: The War Of The Rohirrim Unveils New Visual At Anime Expo 2024




Warner Bros. Animation unveiled a brand new visual for The Lord of the Rings: The War The Of Rohirrim at Anime Expo 2024 on July 3, 2024.

It features the film’s heroine, Héra, the daughter of Helm Hammerhand, showcasing the strong female lead that director Kenji Kamiyama is excited to bring to the screen.

The visual can be viewed below:

In an interview with Anime Expo, director Kenji Kamiyama spoke about the female representation in the film.

In Japanese animation, it’s not uncommon for a female protagonist to be the main character, but it’s more rare in the live-action films made from The Lord of the Rings. Our film has a strong female lead in Héra, and our story is narrated by the noble Tolkien figure Éowyn, so women are very well represented. I think there are a lot of fans who really like Tolkien’s original work, so I hope those people will enjoy it. Making this movie has been a fun challenge.

The Lord of the Rings: The War of Rohirrim is slated to release on Dec 13, 2024.

Kenji Kamiyama, known for his work on Blade Runner: Black Lotus, will direct the film, with Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh, Sam Register, Carolyn Blackwood and Toby Emmerich serving as executive producers.

It is produced by produced by Oscar winner Philippa Boyens, known for her work on “The Lord of the Rings” and “The Hobbit” trilogies, alongside Jason DeMarco and Joseph Chou.

Voice cast includes:

  • Gaia Wise as Héra
  • Brian Cox as Helm Hammerhand
  • Luke Pasqualino as Wulf
  • Miranda Otto as Éowyn & Narrator

The cast also include Lorraine Ashbourne, Yazdan Qafouri, Benjamin Wainwright, Laurence Ubong Williams, Shaun Dooley, Michael Wildman, Jude Akuwudike, Bilal Hasna, and Janine Duvitski.

The plot of The Lord of the Rings: The War of Rohirrim is described as follows:

Set 183 years before the events chronicled in the original trilogy of films, “The Lord of the Rings: The War of the Rohirrim” tells the fate of the House of Helm Hammerhand, the legendary King of Rohan. A sudden attack by Wulf, a clever and ruthless Dunlending lord seeking vengeance for the death of his father, forces Helm and his people to make a daring last stand in the ancient stronghold of the Hornburg— a mighty fortress that will later come to be known as Helm’s Deep. Finding herself in an increasingly desperate situation, Héra, the daughter of Helm, must summon the will to lead the resistance against a deadly enemy intent on their total destruction.
