In August 2022Just weeks after the release of The Rings of Power, many fans were shocked to learn that the rights to Tolkien’s works were bought by another company. Even more, the new owners of the license to perform movies, theatre, merchandising, theme parks and video games on Middle-earth are, precisely, a company dedicated almost entirely to the gamer industry.

Embracer Groupa Swedish conglomerate of video game companies, secured the deal to acquire Middle-earth Enterprises. This division now owns the rights to license or produce literary works such as The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings trilogyas well as other writings authorized by The Tolkien Estate and HarperCollins that, the company remarked, “have not yet been explored.”

At that moment, Embracer said that “future opportunities include exploring films based on iconic characters such as Gandalf, Aragorn, Gollum, Galadriel, Eowyn, among other characters from Tolkien’s literary works,” as well as “continuing to give him new opportunities for fans to explore this fictional world through merchandising and other experiences.

The previous company that owned Middle-earth Enterprises was The Saul Zaentz Company, founded in 1976 and known for having produced films such as Caught Without Exit. That same year she got the rights to Tolkien’s works and in 1998 they were licensed to New Line Cinema to make the famous trilogy directed by Peter Jackson.
