Jackson appeared on The Hollywood Reporter's Awards Chatter podcast, where he was asked whether the studio reached out to him about lending his expertise for The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power. The director revealed that while he had been contacted, he soon lost touch with those involved in the series. "They asked me if I wanted to be involved -- [writer-producer Fran Walsh] and I -- and I said, 'That’s an impossible question to answer without seeing a script,'" he explained. "So they said, 'As soon as we get the first couple scripts, we’ll send them to you.' And the scripts never showed up. That’s the last thing I heard, which is fine. No complaints at all."

Jackson recalled the same story in an upcoming episode in The Business podcast. "About four, five years ago, they asked if I would be interested in it," the director continuing, "So I said, 'Have you got the scripts yet?' Because I know how hard the scripts were to write for the films, and I didn’t know the people writing their scripts. They said, 'Oh no, we haven’t got the scripts yet, but as soon as we do, we’ll send you the scripts.' So I was waiting for the scripts to arrive, and they never did."

Jackson does not hold a grudge over the situation, however, and appears excited to watch the show as a third party. "I’ll be watching it. I’m not the sort of guy who wishes ill will," he said. "Filmmaking is hard enough. If somebody makes a good film or TV show, it’s something to celebrate. The one thing I am looking forward to is actually seeing it as a perfectly neutral viewer." He also commented that Amazon is clearly “betting the farm on Tolkien," due to the $465 million it has invested to bring the first season of The Lord of the Rings show to life.

Amazon Studios has since explained why they failed to send Jackson the scripts, citing the legal reasons to be the culprit in a statement. "In pursuing the rights for our show, we were obligated to keep the series distinct and separate from the films," the studio said. "We have the utmost respect for Peter Jackson and The Lord of The Rings films and are thrilled that he is looking forward to watching The Rings of Power."
