The First Teaser for The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power is Finally Here
Published 5 months ago
After a title reveal, some posters, and first stills from Vanity Fair, Amazon has now given us our first teaser for the highly-anticipated Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power. We finally have a good look at the characters and the scale of spectacle that the series is going for.
Check this out:
I have to admit, the scale of the series looks massive, and the level of CG shown in the teaser could very much match the same visuals as the Lord of the Rings films. With this series being buzzed as one of the most expensive shows ever produced, Amazon better bring their A-game when it comes to bringing back the world of Tolkien, with its own original narrative being told without the help of source material.
Since this is just a teaser, we still have no main plot explained, and the relationship between characters isn’t really specified. With the series set to come out in September, it’s very likely we’ll get our most extensive look sometime later in the year.
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.
Catch The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power when it comes to Amazon Prime Video on Sept. 2.
