We are so very excited to share a brand new teaser for Amazon Prime Video’s upcoming “The Lord of Rings: The Rings of Power.” Based on the works of JRR Tolkien, the series takes place much earlier in Middle-earth (and beyond’s) history than we’ve previously seen in film.
Prime Video’s The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power brings to screens for the very first time the heroic legends of the fabled Second Age of Middle-earth’s history. This epic drama is set thousands of years before the events of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, and will take viewers back to an era in which great powers were forged, kingdoms rose to glory and fell to ruin, unlikely heroes were tested, hope hung by the finest of threads, and the greatest villain that ever flowed from Tolkien’s pen threatened to cover all the world in darkness. Beginning in a time of relative peace, the series follows an ensemble cast of characters, both familiar and new, as they confront the long-feared re-emergence of evil to Middle-earth. From the darkest depths of the Misty Mountains, to the majestic forests of the elf-capital of Lindon, to the breathtaking island kingdom of Númenor, to the furthest reaches of the map, these kingdoms and characters will carve out legacies that live on long after they are gone.
There are glimpses of such places as Moria, thriving with life. The kingdom of Númenor, doomed island.
Isildur, the Valar, and much, much more from The Second Age.
The series hits September 2nd, 2022. We’re expecting a full trailer and more from “The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power” SDCC panel next week.
