Do you recall that it was November 2017 that Amazon Studios first announced their The Lord of the Rings TV series was in production? Originally planned for 2020, this multi-season production was obviously delayed for reasons but also because they’ve clearly been spending time developing, and moulding, what’s one of the first genuinely epic shows we’ve seen in the modern era.
Whilst the first The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power trailer definitely felt like a teaser, this gives you truly epic visuals and landscapes to behold – it’s clear that Amazon Studios are putting everything into this, and its nearly $500m first season budget is definitely here for all to see!
The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power is promising to be a genuinely world-sized, ambitious telling of J.R.R. Tolkien’s fabled Second Age of Middle-earth, which has launched globally on Prime Video now!
This new teaser trailer delves even deeper into this series adaptation, giving fans the first look (check out the previous character poster teases here) at some of Tolkien’s legendary characters from the island kingdom of Númenor. The characters are Isildur (Maxim Baldry), Elendil (Lloyd Owen), Pharazôn (Trystan Gravelle), and Queen Regent Míriel (Cynthia Addai-Robinson). Additional Númenóreans also recently announced are Kemen (Leon Wadham) and Eärien (Ema Horvath). We also get to see the likes of the Elven realms of Lindon and Eregion, the Dwarven realm Khazad-dûm, the Southlands, the Northernmost Wastes, and the Sundering Seas.
Also featured are key cast members Galadriel (Morfydd Clark), Elrond (Robert Aramayo), High King Gil-galad (Benjamin Walker), the Harfoots Marigold Brandyfoot (Sara Zwangobani), Elanor ‘Nori’Brandyfoot (Markella Kavenagh), Poppy Proudfellow (Megan Richards) and Sadoc Burrows (Sir Lenny Henry), The Stranger (Daniel Weyman), the Dwarves King Durin III (Peter Mullan) and Prince Durin IV (Owain Arthur), Halbrand (Charlie Vickers), and Arondir (Ismael Cruz Córdova).
