A new legend begins this fall. The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, only on Prime Video Sept 2, 2022.
Amazon‘s Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power arrives this fall, serving as a prequel to J.R.R. Tolkien’s monstrously popular fantasy franchise. J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay’s The Rings of Power will tell the story of the Second Age of Middle-earth, featuring young versions of both Lord of the Rings‘ Galadriel and Elrond.
The project has been in development since 2017, with the creative team remaining tight-lipped about the details. In mid-January, we got to see the first teaser for the series that unveiled the show’s title and premise.
Young Galadriel is played by Morfyyd Clark, while Robert Aramayo portrays young Elrond. The Rings of Power will also introduce several original characters, including dwarfen princess Disa (Sophia Nomvete), silvan elf Arondir (Ismael Cruz Córdova), Bronwyn (Nazanin Boniadi), and Halbrand (Charlie Vickers). Showrunners Payne and McKay have confirmed that there will be hobbit representation in the show through the inclusion of harfoots, which are ancestors of the hobbits. Megan Richards and Markella Kavenagh are attached to play these harfoots, who will be featured prominently in their own storyline.
