Ad eundum quo nemo ante iit...

Set to debut later in 2021, this edition of The Lord of the Rings will tell “the heroic legends of the fabled Second Age of Middle-earth’s history” and is “set thousands of years before the events of JRR Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings”.
So, bits of the Silmarillion, then. Presumably they think that they'll get more interest if they mention JRRT's most famous title, rather than be accurate.
