The character of Gollum/Sméagol has always fascinated me. because Gollum reflects the worst of human nature, while his dark side reflects the worst of human nature. Sméagol is, no doubt, quite friendly. I think it connects with readers and moviegoers, because it has this dual side. We really want to explore his history and delve into the little-known parts of his journey. What we didn't have time to do in previous films. It's too early to know who will cross his path, but suffice it to say that we will take an example from Professor Tolkien.

Thus, The Lord of the Rings: The Hunt for Gollum should therefore address little-known elements of Gollum's story. We should, logically, discover how Sméagoltransforms into the terrible Gollum under the influence of the ring. Peter Jackson continued his interview singing the praises of his friend Andy Serkis:

Gollum’s story is one of the most compelling in terms of character characterization. Gollum's lifespan is longer than just the Lord of the Rings trilogy. He's a familiar character for everyone, but we'll be able to get into the depths of his story.

Andy Serkis, as for he did not hide what he was saying. his enthusiasm for leading this unique project:

Gollum has always followed me throughout these years. I have read all the books, Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit and The Silmarillion. So I know Tolkien's universe perfectly. And this universe has never left me. So it's absolutely thrilling to be able to go back and dive into Gollum's world.
