While Warner Bros. has yet to release a trailer for The Lord of the Rings: The War of the Rohirrim, they showcased 20 minutes of footage to fortunate attendees at the Annecy Animation Festival back in January. In the meantime, Warner Bros. has generously shared other promotional materials, including the latest image, which is included below. Head over to AnimeMojo.com if you want to see the other three LoTR War of the Rohirrim images released thus far!

Set 183 years before the events of the original trilogy, The Lord of the Rings: The War of the Rohirrim is set to bring audiences back to the epic world of J.R.R. Tolkien’s revered trilogy telling the tale of the House of Helm Hammerhand, the legendary King of Rohan. When Wulf, a cunning and vengeful Dunlending lord, launches a sudden attack to avenge his father’s death, Helm and his people must make a daring last stand in the ancient stronghold of the Hornburg—later known as Helm’s Deep. In this dire situation, Héra, Helm’s daughter, must find the strength to lead the resistance against an enemy bent on their destruction.

Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Kenji Kamiyama (Blade Runner: Black Lotus, Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex), the film features a stellar voice cast including Brian Cox (Succession) as Helm Hammerhand, Gaia Wise (A Walk in the Woods) as Héra, and Luke Pasqualino (Snowpiercer) as Wulf. Miranda Otto returns as Éowyn, Shieldmaiden of Rohan, narrating the story. The ensemble cast also includes Lorraine Ashbourne, Yazdan Qafouri, Benjamin Wainwright, Laurence Ubong Williams, Shaun Dooley, Michael Wildman, Jude Akuwudike, Bilal Hasna, and Janine Duvitski.
