Warner Bros. Animation and New Line‘s forthcoming anime film, The Lord of the Rings: The War of the Rohirrim, is slated to premiere in theaters on April 12, 2024.

The movie, which was first announced in June of last year, takes place hundreds of years prior to Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers and centers on the Helm’s Deep fortress. Additionally, the anime will chronicle the war-filled reign of Helm Hammerhand, King of Rohan.

Kenji Kamiyama, who directed Blade Runner: Black Lotus and Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, will helm the upcoming film, based on a script written by Phoebe Gittins and Arty Papageorgiou. Philippa Boyens, who worked on the Oscar-winning screenwriting teams for The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit, is executive producing.

The cast has not yet been revealed, though an announcement is expected to arrive soon, according to Variety.

“I’m in awe of the creative talent who have come together to bring this epic, heart-pounding story to life, from the mastery of Kenji Kamiyama to a truly stellar cast,” Boyens said in a statement to the outlet.

“The Lord of the Rings films took Tolkien’s masterwork to new cinematic heights and inspired a generation,” said Toby Emmerich, Warner Bros. Pictures Group chairman. “It’s a gift to be able to revisit Middle-earth with many of the same creative visionaries and the talented Kenji Kamiyama at the helm. This will be an epic portrayal unlike anything audiences have ever seen.”

Stay tuned for more information on The Lord of the Rings: The War of the Rohirrim.
