With the first official trailer for Amazon’s The Lord Of The Rings: The Rings Of Power set to drop during the Super Bowl this Sunday, we’re starting to learn more about the highly-anticipated prequel to The Hobbit and The Lord Of The Rings. Thanks to an in-depth article published by Vanity Fair, a bunch of first-look images from The Rings Of Power have emerged online, giving us a stunning new look at what appears to be an epic-scale adventure!
Amazon’s The Lord Of The Rings: The Rings Of Power will tell the story of Middle-Earth’s second age, meaning the series is set before the events of J.R.R Tolkien’s The Lord Of The Rings and The Hobbit. As the title suggests, The Rings Of Power will centre around the forging of the rings of power and of course, the creation of the one ring. As well as showing Sauron’s rise to power, The Rings Of Power is expected feature the epic story of Númenor and the Last Alliance of elves and men.
The first-look images give us our best look yet at the cast of The Lord Of The Rings: The Rings Of Power, including Morfydd Clark as a young Galadriel and Robert Aramayo as a young Elrond. Check out the images for yourself below:
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 one of the greatest villains 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 reemergence 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 farthest 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 arrives on Amazon’s Prime Video on September 2, 2022.
