Filming has started on Born of Hope, a prequel to the Lord of the Rings movies. The film will tell the story of Arathorn and Gilraen (Aragorn’s parents) and will be released on the internet in 2009.

Director Kate Robinson has commented; “We want to show people more of a back-story for Aragorn. Based on Tolkien’s writings in the Appendices of the books we look at Aragorn’s people and show the relationship between his parents.” You can read the full story here.
