'Born of Hope': 'The Lord of the Rings'-Inspired 'Prequel'

Born of Hope by Kate Madison

Beginning tomorrow, December 1, the Lord of the Rings-inspired Born of Hope will make its exclusive debut on Dailymotion.

Directed by Kate Madison, and written by Alex K. Aldridge with the assistance of Christopher Dane, who also stars as Arathorn, Born of Hope is an original prequel based on the J.R.R. Tolkien trilogy and, as per the film's press release, featuring “a host of characters never before seen on screen.”

Born of Hope

Also, Born of Hope is no short film. It's a 70-minute made-for-the-web feature that tells the story of Aragorn's parents, Arathorn and Gilraen, along with the characters who sacrificed it all to keep Aragorn safe. Aragorn, of course, was played by Viggo Mortensen in Peter Jackson's blockbuster trilogy, the last of which, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King won the 2003 best picture Oscar.

Born of Hope follows the launch of The Hunt for Gollum, another Lord of the Rings fan film that was first made available in May 2009.

Also in the Born of Hope cast: Robert Harvey, Beth Aynsley, Jonah McLafferty, and Luke Johnston.
