Producer Jason DeMarco has confirmed on Twitter that The Lord of the Rings: The War of the Rohirrim, the new feature film by Kenji Kamiyama, will make its debut at France’s Annecy festival. This year’s Annecy festival is scheduled to be held in France from June 11-17, 2023.

The film is set in the world of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle-Earth. New Line Cinema is producing the film in partnership with Warner Bros. Animation. Sola Entertainment is responsible for the animation studios for the film, and Warner Bros. Pictures will distribute the film.

The film is described as an original anime feature, depicting “a legendary battle that helped shape Middle-earth and set the stage” for Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings. It “explores and expands the untold story behind the fortress of Helm’s Deep, delving into the life and bloodsoaked times of one of Middle-earth’s most legendary figures; the mighty King of Rohan – Helm Hammerhand.”

The Lord of the Rings: The War of the Rohirrim is scheduled to open in theaters on April 12, 2024.
