The series’ pilot, Shadow of the Past, will premiere on Amazon Prime on September 2, 2022, and will be directed by J.A. Bayona, the filmmaker behind A Monster Calls (2016), marking what is definitely not his first rodeo in the fantasy arena. According to Prime Video, the series is to follow the eventual rise and fall of the various kingdoms across the once-peaceful Middle Earth, as a young Galadriel (Morfydd Clark) fights to protect the land, certain that an evil (who will later turn out to be Sauron) is on the rise. In addition, the show will feature a host of characters both old and new, including Bronwyn (Nazanin Boniadi), and High King Gil-galad (Benjamin Walker). There’s no doubt that LOTR fans are excited for The Lord of the Rings: Rings of Power.

A notable new character here is Halbrand (Charlie Vickers), a stowaway who joins Galadriel on her quest after surviving a storm on her ship, as she sails along the Sundering Seas. In a dramatic contrast, Halbrand is running from a mysterious past, whilst Galadriel strives to save the future of Middle Earth, who won’t heed her warnings in order to protect themselves. We can’t wait to learn more about this new character in Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power.

Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power will also be the first property to have a lot of its important action taking place on the ocean. Whilst the sea has been referenced in Peter Jackson’s LOTR trilogy, it was only used for Bilbo (Ian Holm) and Frodo (Elijah Wood) to sail off into the west at the end of their journeys. Fans are eager to see so much action occur in an environment so integral to the Elves, the Hobbits, and even JRR Tolkien himself.

Additionally, the show was created by Patrick McKay and John D. Payne, co-writer of the upcoming Flash Gordon remake. The teaser for the show premiered during the most recent Super Bowl, galvanizing LOTR fans everywhere. Everyone is ready for LOTR The Rings of Power! Fans will likely fall in love with this show as they did with The Lord of the Rings movies and they have a lot to be excited for.
