“The Lord of the Rings” fans have been equal measures of excited and anxious about Amazon Prime Video’s upcoming series, “The Rings of Power.” Returning to the world of JRR Tolkien, this series takes us deep into Middle-earth’s Second Age. Yes, there will be characters we know and stories we’ve heard tell of. But, a good deal of the show will be tales and individuals we’ve never seen before.
This morning, Prime Video released the final trailer before the show premieres next month.
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.
“The Rings of Power” will premiere September 2nd, 2022. Don’t forget to check if your local theater is offering the theatrical fan experience!
