The new interactive Middle-earth map shows the upcoming terrain of the new Lord of the Rings series on Amazon.

Take a look at the landscape that will be covered in the upcoming Lord of the Rings series set to stream on Amazon in 2021.

Over the weekend, Amazon debuted an interactive map of J.R.R. Tolkien's fictional Middle-earth for fans to explore. 

Amazon tweeted a static image of a Middle-earth map on Friday with the caption "Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky." In a second tweet on Friday, Amazon provided a link to a new interactive map.

While this map lets users zoom in on the landscape that will be featured in the new series, all that's shown are various mountain ranges, valleys and rivers. There are no other clues regarding specific characters or storylines in the series.

Amazon has a multi-season commitment to the new series that will tell stories taking place before the events in Tolkien's The Fellowship of the Ring. 

We also know from previous reports that Godzilla vs. Kong screenwriters J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay are on board to write the series. But there's not much else to go on, and there's no official word yet if Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson will be involved.

Amazon didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

The new series is expected to start production within two years.
