It begins tomorrow.
The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power premieres globally on Amazon Primevideo September 2, with two episodes. The remaining six episodes will be released weekly from September 9 to October 14.
Set thousands of years before the events of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, the series is based on author J. R. R. Tolkien’s history of Middle-earth. It begins during a time of relative peace and covers all the major events of Middle-earth’s Second Age: the forging of the Rings of Power, the rise of the Dark Lord Sauron, the fall of the island kingdom of Númenor, and the last alliance between Elves and Men. These events take place over thousands of years in Tolkien’s original stories but are condensed for the series.
Howard Shore who scored TLOR and The Hobbit returned to work on this new entry.
Directed by J.A Bayona (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom), Wayne Che Yip (The Wheel of Time) and Charlotte Brandstrom (The Witcher).
