Amazon Prime Video has released the full The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power trailer offering a look at almost two minutes of footage.
“A new legend begins this fall. The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, only on Prime Video Sept 2, 2022,” teases Amazon.
This epic drama brings to screens for the very first time the heroic legends of the fabled Second Age of Middle-earth’s history and is set thousands of years before the events of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. The series 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.
