The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power – Main Teaser | Prime Video

This September the legend begins. #TheRingsOfPower

Prime Video’s The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power brings to screens for the very first time the heroic legends of the fabled Second Age of Middle-earth’s history. This epic drama is set thousands of years before the events of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, and will take viewers back to an era in which great powers were forged, kingdoms rose to glory and fell to ruin, unlikely heroes were tested, hope hung by the finest of threads, and the greatest villain that ever flowed from Tolkien’s pen threatened to cover all the world in darkness. 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.

    This does looks visually great. Seems the only way this thing goes wrong is if the The writing and adaptation is bad.

    • TheHominator says:

      @Michael Scott The good news is, they had the highest budget for any movie/series production ever (1 Billion $) so I am expecting it to be completely CGI like the recent marvel movies with some drone shots of the unique environment of New Zealand ~to make them like Peter Jacksons Trilogy~.

    • twilitetide says:

      @BirbShid Well, having a black elf may be “a message” but his armor with the Green Man motif is IMO pretty cool. Can skip the “involved with a human” bit tho. Srsly you can message people all you want like repetitive car commercials but it’s not gonna change anyone’s mind.

    • DevilMan says:

      @Trime He says typing on a commercial website with a commercially bought device. like come on bro

    • Michael Scott says:

      Like almost all remakes of our time. Of course CGI will be top quality because they’re spending millions. But writing and characters are very bad and completely out of spirit.

  2. jrsouthworth says:

    It’s obviously going to look beautiful by this trailer… I truly hope everything else follows. LOTR deserves to have its 2nd age known and done well

  3. Matei Cina says:

    This is the best teaser/trailer so far visually. All the other ones looked like a generic fantasy setting 101 with loud fantasy noises jumbled in between. Let us hope that there is an actual story, writing and characters behind this. We all love LOTR but we hate to see it potentially desecrated by doing stuff incorrectly just to push a message that nobody wants to see or hear.

  4. Nicolás Díaz says:

    “There was a time when the world was so young there had not yet been a sunrise. But even then, there was light.”
    If we see the Two Trees, then we’re definitely going to see Melkor and Ungoliant, and how the Trees were destroyed and their last flower and fruit made into the sun and the moon. And that is as First Age as you can get. So, unless they’re elaborating on snippets of the Appendices, and do those scenes as flashbacks, I have no idea how they’re gonna fit that in a story that allegedly takes place on the Second Age, where most of this would already be considered ancient history.

  5. David Aragón says:

    “False hopes are more dangerous than fears.”
    ― J.R.R. Tolkien

  6. Michael Aries says:

    The visuals are stunning, but let’s be real, we all fear about the quality of the story.

  7. David Aragón says:

    “It felt only natural to us that an adaptation of Tolkien’s work would reflect what the world actually looks like.”
    – Lindsey Weber, E.P. Amazon’s LOTR Series, Vanity Fair (Feb. 2022)

    “There are certainly themes Tolkien felt were important. We made a promise to ourselves at the beginning of the process that we weren’t going to put any of our own politics, our own messages or our own themes into these movies. What we were trying to do was to analyse what was important to Tolkien and to try to honour that. In a way, were trying to make these films for him, not for ourselves.”
    – Peter Jackson, Interview with GreenCine (Dec. 2002)

    • Mangeak10 says:

      “As filmmakers, as writers, we had no interest whatsoever in putting our junk, our baggage into these movies. We just thought we should take what Tolkien cared about, clearly, that we should take those and we should put them in to the film. This should ultimately be Tolkien’s film, it shouldn’t be ours.”

      -Peter Jackson during the production of the Fellowship of the Ring

      He broke his own promise with the Hobbit films and began putting in material that didn’t and shouldn’t exist, and to absolutely no surprise the films suffered as a result.

    • Kataifi says:

      And Tolkien’s family hated PJ’s movies despite that

    • Chris Sexton says:

      Perfect comment David.

    • Luciano Fernandez says:

      @Gamingwithquancena I’m sorry, do you not understand how multicultural societies came to be and why they wouldn’t appear in this setting?

    • ElPaeyo says:

      ​@Gamingwithquancena I’m not mad about other races being present in the show, but rather about the fact that they are adapting Middle Earth’s cities demographics to that of modern-day USA, in a fictional world inspired in Northern European mythology. Looks kinda off.

  8. Lepepene says:

    Tolkien letter 210 “I do earnestly hope that in the assignment of actual speeches to the characters they will be represented as I have presented them: in style and sentiment. I should resent perversion of the characters (and do resent it, so far as it appears in this sketch) even more than the spoiling of the plot and scenery.”

    • Sailing Sinbad says:

      @Pred Des and yet they completely deviated from the books as written, to the point where main characters are completely different in the movies than in the book.

      Let’s not pretend that the movies were somehow this faithful adaptation. They were great movies, some of the best movies in history. But they made drastic changes to the written material

    • Pred Des says:

      @Sailing Sinbad no they weren’t. They specifically set out to make tolkien films. They said they are removing any sense of personal politics or opinions from the creation and direction of the trilogy. They deviated for the format of a movie but they are still great representations of middle earth to the point everyone associates lord of the rings with Jacksons design language.

    • Mangeak10 says:

      Once upon a time (my crest has long since fallen) I had a mind to make a body of more or less connected legend […]. I would draw some of the great tales in fullness, and leave many only placed in the scheme, and sketched. The cycles should be linked to a majestic whole, and yet leave scope for other minds and hands, wielding paint and music and drama.

      (Letter 131)

    • Sailing Sinbad says:

      @Nathan Carrier the lotr movies didn’t respect the characters that much. Most of them are represented differently in the movies than jn the books. That’s why Christopher Tolkien hated them, he thoutht the movies were a perversion of his father’s work. And yet they are still great movies, despite the fact that they didn’t respect the characters as written.

      Let’s just wait and see shall we? Judging anything before it even goes out is the best way to come into it with a biased outlook from the start l. Let’s not judge the show before it comes out, see it with a fresh mind, and judge it afterwards on its own merit. Not on our presuppositions based on promo material

    • Vincent says:

      @Nathan Carrier respected the characters? Really? Say that to Denethor or Faramir. Even Aragorn was so different. Till now this series are showing Galadriel or Elrond being Galadriel and Elrond, let’s see what happens then, but til now this show doesn’t looks bad in that aspect, not worse that Jackson’s movies at least.
      Really, name one character betrayal here, the show is not even published yet and you are saying things that you don’t know and defending things of the Jackson’s movies that are a straight lie.

    “Let the past die…” that was in star wars sequels… “it’s the past.. move on, be done with it” and that’s from obi-wan kenobi show… and now “The past is dead. We either move on or we die with it.” nothing good comes from that ideology … i’ve seen it 😀

    • jeebus022 says:

      lmao just stop

    • Congratulations, It's a....... Squid says:

      @Captain Pike-a-chu Because they’re purposely misrepresenting those themes for their own agenda.

    • Captain Pike-a-chu says:

      How did you watch all those things and come away learning the wrong lessons entirely? The sequels wasn’t about letting the past die, that’s literally said by the film’s villain, since when is the villain giving the real lesson to be learned? The sequels have never been about letting the past die, it’s about learning from the failures of the past to grow and become better. That’s the point of the story. And the story of Obi Wan isn’t about be done and move on, it’s about not dwelling and being held back by the past, learning to let go of guilt and focus on the future and what’s worth fighting for.

  10. TheDarkCreed86 says:

    Sauron tricking the races, creating the rings and becoming the Dark Lord must be the backbone of this show for however many seasons they planning.
