The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power is a planned Prime Video series that will follow Sauron’s ascent as he seeks to rule over the fictitious world’s diverse races during Middle Earth’s Second Age.
The fact that Amazon Prime Video’s TV adaptation of Tolkien’s famous books is a precursor to the late author’s Lord of the Rings trilogy, which takes place during Middle Earth’s Third Age, will come as no surprise.
Details regarding the next Lord of the Rings series have finally been released after a long wait.
In a teaser video, Amazon Prime Video released the dramatic full title of the series: The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power. The program takes place before the events of Peter Jackson’s famous Lord of the LOTR third film. It will tell the story of the Middle-Second earth’s Age and is unconnected to the films. On September 2, 2022, the show is set to premiere.
There are no famous faces in The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power’s ensemble cast. It stars Cynthia Addai-Robinson, Trystan Gravelle, Peter Mullan, Benjamin Walker, Augustus Prew, and others, including Morfydd Clark as a teenage Galadriel and Hugo Weaving as Lord of Rivendell.
Tolkien’s own poetry describing the 19 rings handed to the Elves, Dwarf-lords, and rulers of Men, while the 20th was given to Sauron, is narrated by Clark in the teaser.
Until September 2, 2022, The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power will be available on Prime Video.
Bray Film Studios and Bovingdon Airfield in Berkshire and Hertfordshire, respectively, will be used for season 2 production, according to Variety. In the second part of 2022, filming is planned to start.
The Lord of the Rings and The Wheel of Time aren’t supposed to compete for viewers’ attention later this year (or in 2023).
