Hi all! Very excited about this new HME community forum. Regarding the Prime show, I am very optimistic despite the set backs and firing rumors. However, one thing that I can't shake is the question of if they are planning on remaining in the film canon, which was brought up on the recent HME pod. Generally, I think they should probably remain in the film canon to make things easier for the more mainstream audience, but I'm not truly partial either way. But the one sticking point for me is the music. Howard Shore's scores are so intertwined with the worlds of Middle Earth for me. I would love to see him return, or have the creators get access to the rights to certain themes (Elves, Men of Númenor, Sauron, exc.). Certainly know that it would be a long shot with different studio and such negotiating. Anyway, just wondering if anyone else has been longing to hear news about Howard Shore.
