PRIME VIDEO: The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power‘s first two episodes arrive on Prime Video beginning Sept 1. And while it looks epic in scale, it isn’t based on a Tolkien novel. It’s a totally new creation. So I think the success of the series will be determined by how fans connect to the new characters, and their story arcs.
The official words….
“Beginning in a time of relative peace, the series follows an ensemble cast of characters, both familiar and new, as they confront the long-feared re-emergence of evil to Middle-earth. From the darkest depths of the Misty Mountains, to the majestic forests of the elf-capital of Lindon, to the breathtaking island kingdom of Númenor, to the furthest reaches of the map, these kingdoms and characters will carve out legacies that live on long after they are gone.”
