After months-old rumors that Amazon may be planning to incorporate sexually explicit content in its new Lord of the Rings television production, a change.org petition asking that nudity be kept out of the series has attracted some 15,000 signatures.
Amazon is currently producing a multi-season television adaptation of the Lord of the Rings trilogy by J.R.R. Tolkien. The series is a prequel to the story told in the trilogy, based on content from the novels. The first season is expected to arrive on Prime Video later this year.
Back in October, the blog TheOneRing.net speculated that Amazon was planning to add sexually explicit scenes to the new series.
The site pointed to the hiring of an intimacy coordinator for the Lord of the Rings series. Intimacy coordinators handle nudity and sexually explicit scenes, as well as non-explicit kissing scenes.
