Animation ‘Lord of the Rings’ Anime Movie in the Works From New Line, Warner Bros. Animation

I know this post is a few years old, but I have to completely agree and add my bafflement as to why they turned Sam into a blithering idiot.

And I would have been REALLY curious to see how they would have handled things if Bakshi had been able to make Part 2, because there is no way that his Sam could have pulled off some of the dark, dramatic things that Book Sam has to do in the later parts of the story.
I agree, a lot of what the Bakshi movie did was head-tilting. Calling Saurman "Aramin" partway through the movie (studio meddling, I know, but still), shunting Legolas, Gimli, Merry and Pippin off to the side, giving the Balrog butterfly wings, the hard-to-make-out fight scenes (rotoscoping the orcs and Ringwraiths was a mistake).....
Animation? How plebian.

I'm thinking that a trailer will be out within the next month so it'll be attached to either Horizon or (more likely) Twisters.
