Can you watch ‘The Lord of the Rings’ series on Amazon for free?
It’s been two decades since the Oscar award-winning Lord of the Rings movie series featuring Elijah Wood, Liv Tyler, and Ian McKellen first debuted back in 2001. The series is composed of The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, and The Return of the King. It’s honestly considered a modern classic with fans continuing to watch the series every single year.
As a matter of fact, a poll released in 2019 found that The Lord of the Rings series is now even more popular than the Star Wars franchise. Surely, Disney would love to get a hold of such an iconic property, if it weren’t for the Tolkien estate doing whatever it can to preserve the probity of the franchise. But The Lord of the Rings series will still be getting a new show on Amazon Prime in 2021.
So where can we watch and stream The Lord of the Rings in November 2021? We’ve gathered an overview of where to find it!
Is The Lord of the Rings series available on Netflix, Hulu, and Disney plus?
Unfortunately, The Lord of the Rings series is not available on the streaming giant Netflix. Will it ever be? It’s not likely. The streaming platform has put its focus on more original content. Plus The Lord of the Rings series is owned by Warner Media, which also owns the HBO Max streaming service.
When it comes to Hulu, the films were removed from the Hulu library earlier this year. As of now, there is no word on whether The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, and The Return of the King will come back to the platform.
As for Disney+, The Lord of the Rings series cannot be found either. And more than likely, it won’t be added to the Disney streaming platform, being as though Disney only shows their own library of content. People, however, can view many Disney originals, including upcoming series such as WandaVision, The Book of Boba Fett, Obi-Wan, and Star Wars: The Bad Batch.
All three films composing The Lord of the Rings series are currently streaming on HBO Max. Plus, feel free to watch The Hobbit trilogy starring Martin Freeman on HBO Max. At the present moment, HBO Max is the only streaming service offering all six films with their subscription. They’re expected to stay on the platform on a long-term basis. HBO’s parent company, Warner Media owns the rights to The Lord of the Rings series.
Is The Lord of the Rings series on Amazon Prime Video?
Fortunately, The Lord of the Rings is in fact available on Amazon Prime if you pay the rental cost, which is $3.99 per movie for the high-definition version. Each extended edition is available for merely $9.99.
Currently, there are no websites offering The Lord of the Rings series online for free. We’ll be frank with the public – if there are such sites lingering around on the web, they will more than likely put your computer at risk for a virus. We need our devices and we don’t have to jeopardize them.
Now granted, a free trial is not presently being included when you subscribe to HBO Max. Upon subscribing, you immediately stream HBO hit shows and movies all in one place. The cost will only be $14.99 every month (plus applicable taxes). But there are no long-term commitments. Thus, feel free to try HBO Max for as long as you’d like. You could cancel it at any time with no questions asked then stream again whenever you wish.
