Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power (Amazon TV series - September 2022)

(1/186) > >>


--- Quote ---The mystery shrouding Amazon’s new JRR Tolkien adaptation has lifted slightly, as the show has revealed its title. The multi-series epic will be known as Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, setting viewers up for an on-screen representation of a new Middle-earth story.

“The Rings of Power unites all the major stories of Middle-earth’s Second Age: 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,” said showrunners, JD Payne and Patrick McKay, in a statement accompanying a video that shows the programme’s title being forged in a blacksmith’s foundry.

Pretty excited for this... the second age is the least-developed of the three, so the writers will have more room to introduce their own elements without stepping on the toes of the Tolkien scholars.

I read that the 1st season budget was a whopping $465 million. ;D

This is going to be fucking amazing.

Bezos must have been big into Tolkien growing up. :D

Game of thrones sans tits I suppose.

They are filming series 2 down the road form me, you can see the back of the sets… I should try and sneek in!

I checked the cast list the other day and my heart sunk when I saw Lenny Henry listed. Peter Mullan will make a great dwarf though. It'll be great, sure of it.
