‘The Lord of the Rings’ TV Show Reveals Full Title and Premises
Since its announcement, Amazon has promoted its upcoming series based on JRR Tolkien’s Middle-earth novels as the Lord of the Rings Pin up. But that’s not quite true; it does not fit the story of The Lord of the Rings trilogy of books. It’s not just about recounting the events of Peter Jackson’s films. Instead, it’s a prequel that takes place several years before The Lord of the Rings books and movies. Thus, even though it has always been called “The Lord of the Rings“, it really needed a different title.
Today, Prime Video revealed what this title is. Officially, according to this announcement video below, it’s called The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power..
Here’s the show’s official synopsis:
Amazon Studios’ upcoming series brings to screens the heroic legends of Middle-earth’s legendary Second Age history for the very first time. This epic drama is set thousands of years before the events of The Hobbit and JRR Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings, and will take viewers back to a time when great powers were forged, kingdoms rose to glory and fell to ruin. , unlikely heroes were tested, hope hung on the thinnest of threads, and the greatest villain to ever spring from Tolkien’s pen threatened to cover the entire world in darkness. Beginning in a time of relative peace, the series follows a cast of characters, both familiar and new, as they confront the dreaded re-emergence of evil in Middle-earth. From the darkest depths of the Misty Mountains, to the majestic forests of the elven capital of Lindon, to the breathtaking island kingdom of Númenor, to the far reaches of the map, these kingdoms and characters will carve out legacies that will last long after they left.
In a press release, via THR, The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power Showrunners JD Payne and Patrick McKay said their show is about “all the great stories of the Second Age of Middle-earth,” including the rise of Sauron, the creation of the rings, and “the last alliance of elves and men. “. Or The Lord of the Rings only had one ring (that would be, uh, the one ring), this new series will have several. It’s like saying: a ring isn’t cool, you know what’s cool? A ton of rings.
The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power premieres on Prime Video on September 2, 2022.
