It hardly needs to be stressed how eagerly awaited the Lord of the Rings TV series is. This is an event that promises to be epochal, for a title that, according to expectations, should go to fill that void left by Game of Thrones. An epochal production to say the least, considering the budget invested for the realization of the various seasons in the program.
Mind-boggling figures. Only the first cycle of episodes, according to rumors of the Hollywood Reporter, has foreseen an investment of 465 million dollars. The initial feared expectation of 500 million for all seasons has been far exceeded. The wait will last for a few more months. The debut on Prime Video is in fact scheduled for the next September 2, 2022, also visible on Sky Q and via the app on Now Smart Stick.
The Lord of the Rings, the series: poster
The production has unveiled the official title of the TV series, The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power. An epic tale, which arrives on the screen two decades after the release of the Peter Jackson trilogy (2001-2003).
Fans are eager to enjoy rich trailers but, in the meantime, they have to “settle” for a shower of posters launched online all of a sudden. The protagonists of the TV series are shown, even if no faces find space in the published images. Space for the hands, in the center of the shots. There are those who hold food in their fingers, who brandish weapons or other objects, all useful to understand who it is or what its key characteristics are.
The Lord of the Rings, the series: plot and cast
For the first time, the tale of the heroic legends of the mythical Second Age of Middle-earth will arrive on the small screen. The epic drama will take place thousands of years before the events of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.
Doors opened at a time when great powers were forged, huge kingdoms found glory and then ruin. War was upon us and the hope for the future was weak to say the least. In the background, a dark entity is ready to swoop down on the world.
Also in this case we will start from a period of relative peace, with new and well-known characters grappling with ominous omens. The return of evil to Middle-earth. A series that will take us through beautiful places, exploring more of the world created by Tolkien, from the Misty Mountains to the forest of the elven capital of Lindon, to the island of the kingdom of Numenor.
