I am keeping a track of any queries FL are responding to about the new 5e LotRRP (their abbreviation). It may help you so they don't get bombarded with stuff.

FL abbreviation for the 5e game: LotRRP
Delays to TOR releases?
Free League Publishing: “It will absolutely not delay TOR releases - quite the opposite, a larger playerbase for both TOR and LotRRP together will allow us to make more content for both. And releases will be for TOR first, then converted for LotRRP.”
Differences between AiME (Adventures in Middle-earth by Cubicle 7) and LotRRP?
Free League Publishing: “The main difference is that Lord of the Rings Roleplaying is based on TOR 2nd edition, not 1st ed. Upcoming LotRRP modules might work reasonably well with AiME, but they won't be 100% compatible.”
Compatibility with AiME?
Free League Publishing: “LotRRP is 5E like AiME was so of course there are similarities, but it will not be 100% compatible. Using AiME books with LotRRP or vice versa will likely require a little tweaking.”
Free League Publishing: “LotRRP is 5E like AiME was so of course there are similarities, but it will not be 100% compatible, no.”
Is this a remake of AiME with just a new cover or is it different?
Jacob Rodgers: “It is a new set of rules, following the second edition of The One Ring. Of course the core engine is still 5e but you will see plenty of new stuff.”
