The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, the upcoming series from Amazon Prime, has released it’s first trailer and it is exciting!
The series is set thousands of years before Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings books and the Jackson movie trilogies. It is being described as an epic drama where unlikely heroes will be tested and face one of the greatest villains ever created by Tolkien.
The series follows an ensemble cast as they confront the long-feared re-emergence of evil to Middle-Earth. We will get to see the rise of kingdoms of the Elves and their capital of Lindon, the island kingdom of Numenor, and the Misty Mountains.
Take a look at the trailer below and let us know what you think…personally, I am looking forward to this one.
The series is led by showrunners and executive producers J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay. The ensemble cast includes Cynthia Addai-Robinson, Robert Aramayo, Owain Arthur, Maxim Baldry, Nazanin Boniadi, Morfydd Clark, Ismael Cruz Córdova, Charles Edwards, Trystan Gravelle, Sir Lenny Henry, Ema Horvath, Markella Kavenagh, Joseph Mawle, Tyroe Muhafidin, Sophia Nomvete, Lloyd Owen, Megan Richards, Dylan Smith, Charlie Vickers, Leon Wadham, Benjamin Walker, Daniel Weyman, and Sara Zwangobani.
Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power is set to debut on Amazon Prime Video September 2, 2022.
