New Empire Covers Introduce Us to the Elves, Dwarves, and Harfoots of LOTR: The Rings of Power

Amazon Prime Video is set to bring us back to the land of Middle-earth later this September, and though it’s unclear when we’ll get our first full trailer, we do have some great covers from Empire giving us a look at the Elves, Dwarves, and pre-Hobbit creatures called the Harfoots.

Check these out:

Undoubtedly the most popular character in the covers is Galadriel who will be brought to life by Morfydd Clark. We don’t know exactly Galadriel’s role is in the series, but it looks like we’ll be seeing more of her in battle rather than in some elf meeting room making predictions like in Fellowship.


As for the dwarf characters, we have Prince Durin IV (Owain Arthur) and Princess Disa (Sophia Nomvete), the rulers of Khazad-dum; the Harfoots in the cover are Poppy Proudfellow (Megan Richards), Elanor ‘Nori’ Brandyfoot (Markella Kavenagh), and Sadoc Burrows (Lenny Henry).

With Peter Jackson’s film trilogy requiring a lot of CG work to bring Lord of the Rings to life, fans are wondering if Amazon will be able to pull off the Herculean task of trying to capture the same magic and scale with a television show. With Jeff Bezos allegedly throwing as much money as he can at the project, I’m hoping that Rings of Power manages to successfully bring us back to Middle-earth, and maybe introduce a new generation of fans to the franchise as well.

Amazon Studios’ forthcoming series 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 Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power hits Amazon Prime Video on Sept. 2.
