The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power is a highly anticipated Amazon Prime Video series. It will premiere later this year, and fans of J.R.R. Tolkien’s epic fantasy works are eager to return to Middle-Earth. J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay, the executive producers, also act as showrunners for the big-budget series.
The wait for the series, which began more than four years ago, is almost over. In September, Amazon Prime Video will release this series.
The drama follows Sauron’s forging of the Rings of Power. It also include the iconic Ring, thousands of years before the events of Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings films.
The Rings of Power is set during the Second Age of Middle-Earth, and the story is about the rise of Sauron. He is the Dark Lord who manipulates the beings of Middle-Earth to hatch the plans to sow chaos by bending the world according to his will. The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings are set at the very end of the Third Age of Middle-Earth.
The Second Age is a ten-thousand-year era, so there’s plenty of opportunity in The Rings of Power for stories to be told. While the programme will most likely centre on Sauron’s reappearance —diminished following a fight against the Elves at the bidding of Morgoth, the First Dark Lord — and the creation of the Rings of Power, this time of Middle-Earth also saw the destruction of the island nation Manor.
The presentation will not be limited to events from the Second Age. In Tolkien’s enormous estimate of Arda, the realm of his epic fantasy works. Our first glance at the series teased a sight back to the first years of creation.
