The Lord of the Rings (Amazon Show)


These games were released by the companies who had the rights to make movies based on Peter Jackson's films but canonicity of their plotlines and characters is B-level meaning if contradicted by movies or sources than it is overruled. If there is any question as to whether the games are canon, think of it like this. Middle-earth: Shadow of War clearly establishes the movies as canon to those games and they draw heavy inspiration for design from the New Line films. If you still consider them non-canon there is a wiki for you: Middle-earth Film Saga Wiki. This wiki is the world of Shadow of War which includes the movies.


Characters, troops and locations in these games are canon but none of the events that take place in campaigns or other gameplay are considered part of continuity.
