“Lord of the Rings ”fan-made film restored on YouTube after briefly being blocked by Warner Bros.

We'll cheers to that!

As the great Hamfast "Gaffer" Gamgee once said, “All’s well as ends better.”

As of Friday morning, a celebrated 15-year-old, fan-made Lord of the Rings film titled Hunt for Gollum has been officially restored on YouTube after it was briefly taken down by Warner Bros.

The project, which has accrued over 13 million views, previously displayed an alert that read: “This video contains content from Warner Bros. Entertainment, who has blocked it on copyright grounds.” 

A large disclaimer posted at the beginning of the fan film clarifies that the project is “in no way affiliated with, or sponsored or approved,” by Tolkien Enterprises, New Line Cinema, LOTR and Hobbit director Peter Jackson, or any of the other parties involved. It added that the film was “produced solely for the personal, uncompensated enjoyment of ourselves and other Tolkien fans.”

Warner Bros.' temporary blocking of the project comes less than a day after it announced it would be releasing two new Lord of the Rings films, one of which is similarly titled Lord of the Rings: the Hunt for Gollum. Andy Serkis will executive produce, direct, and star as Sméagol/Gollum in the upcoming film, which is based on a screenplay by LOTR and Hobbit screenwriters Fran WalshPhilippa Boyens, as well as Phoebe Gittins, and Arty Papageorgiou. It is tentatively set to be released in 2026.

“Yesssss, Precious. The time has come once more to venture into the unknown with my dear friends, the extraordinary and incomparable guardians of Middle-earth Peter [Jackson], Fran and Philippa,” Serkis said in a press release. "With [Warner Bros. film chiefs] Mike [De Luca] and Pam [Abdy], and the Warner Bros team on the quest as well, alongside WETA and our film-making family in New Zealand, it’s just all too delicious…”

It’s not immediately clear how much the fan version relates to Warner Bros' The Hunt for Gollum. The roughly 40-minute film sees Gandalf task Aragorn tracking down Gollum before the creature can locate Frodo Baggins and, thus, his precious One Ring. Along the journey, Strider encounters both friend and foe.

Lord of the Rings: the Hunt for Gollum is one of two projects that Jackson, Boyens, and Walsh are set to produce for Warner Bros. in the next few years.

“It is an honor and a privilege to travel back to Middle-earth with our good friend and collaborator, Andy Serkis, who has unfinished business with that Stinker — Gollum!” they said in a joint statement. “As lifelong fans of Professor Tolkien’s vast mythology, we are proud to be working with Mike De Luca, Pam Abdy, and the entire team at Warner Bros. on another epic adventure!”
