Warner Bros. Animation has offered a first look at its upcoming The Lord of the Rings: The War of the Rohirrim anime film. Originally slated for spring 2024, the film is now confirmed for a global theatrical release in Q4 instead.

Produced by New Line, the much-anticipated animated adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s revered Lord of the Rings trilogy will be directed by award-winning filmmaker Kenji Kamiyama, who’s known for Blade Runner: Black Lotus and Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex the TV series. 

The cast has also been revealed with Brian Cox voicing the mighty King of Rohan, Helm Hammerhand. His daughter Héra is portrayed by Gaia Wise, while Luke Pasqualino from Snowpiercer will play Wulf. Miranda Otto is also confirmed to reprise her role as Éowyn.

Get a first look at the upcoming anime film in the gallery above and read on for the official synopsis.

Set 183 years before the events chronicled in the original trilogy of films, “The Lord of the Rings: The War of the Rohirrim” tells the fate of the House of Helm Hammerhand, the legendary King of Rohan. A sudden attack by Wulf, a clever and ruthless Dunlending lord seeking vengeance for the death of his father, forces Helm and his people to make a daring last stand in the ancient stronghold of the Hornburg—a mighty fortress that will later come to be known as Helm’s Deep. Finding herself in an increasingly desperate situation, Héra, the daughter of Helm, must summon the will to lead the resistance against a deadly enemy intent on their total destruction.

The Lord of the Rings: The War of the Rohirrim will premiere in international theaters starting December 11 this year. Meanwhile, a U.S. theatrical release is confirmed for December 13, 2024.
