Amazon revealed the name of the series of The Lord of the rings that will arrive on the Prime Video platform in 2022. It is called The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power and will premiere on Friday, September 2 this year, with new episodes every week.
In a statement, Amazon noted that the title is suggestive enough for fans of the JRR Tolkien series to imagine the plot.
Unfortunately for you, Tolkien fanatic, for now all you have is an image with the title of the series. There is no trailer, but calm down, surely there will be soon.
According to producers JD Payne and Patrick McKay, “The Rings of Power unites all the major stories of the Second Age of Middle-earth: the forging of the rings, the rise of the Dark Lord Sauron, the epic tale of Númenor, and the Last Alliance of Elves and Men.” If you’re a fan of the Tolkien universe, we imagine you can’t wait for September 2nd.
In case you’re wondering, the original English title is The Rings of Power, so the translation is as literal as it is accurate.
“This is a title that we imagine could be on a book spine alongside the other JRR Tolkien classics,” Payne and McKay added.
Amazon says the plot is set thousands of years before the events of The Hobbit Y The Lord of the rings, and will take viewers back to an era when great powers were forged, kingdoms rose to glory and fell to ruin, unlikely heroes were put to the test, hope hung by the thinnest thread, and one of the Greater villains to emerge from Tolkien’s pen threatened to cast darkness over the world.
Mark your calendar, an epic is coming in Middle Earth.
