We have the official title, we have character posters, we still don’t have the trailer. But while we’re waiting for it, we got the great looking first look images, thanks to Vanity Fair.
The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power is one of the most anticipated TV shows ever. Based on Tolkien’s fantasy world, and two decades after Peter Jackson made the epic movie trilogy, The Lord of the Rings fans are all set to return to Middle-earth in the Amazon Prime VIdeo series which is officially the most expensive TV series of all time.
The fans of the fantasy genre are having a great year. Game of Thrones is getting a prequel series House of the Dragon on HBO, The Witcher series is also set to get a prequel series Blood Origin on Netflix, and, of course, The Lord of the Rings is making its big return, on the small screens this time.
Amazon Prime Video spent around a billion dollars on this series, and they revealed they’re already planning five seasons. Yep, that’s how much confidence they have in this upcoming series, and apparently, so do we.
The first look images provided the first look on Morfydd Clark as Galadriel, whose voice we’ve heard in the title reveal video. Now we have the first look at some other characters. Check the official first look images down below:
“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, official synopsis
We’re expecting the first official trailer in three days! The series is set to premiere on September 2, 2022 on Prime Video.
