On Sunday, Feb. 13, Amazon Studios will release the first teaser trailer for its long-awaited The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power television series.
The most expensive TV series ever made will have its official first look video premiere during Super Bowl LVI.
The news follows Amazon’s release of teaser-like character posters, which just showed the torsos and hands of its actors.
The Rings of Power is a sequel to The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers. It chronicles the creation of the first rings of power that enabled Sauron, the Dark Lord, to spread darkness throughout Middle-earth.
The program, which Amazon describes as “the first to bring to screens the legendary Second Age of Middle-earth history’s brave legends,” is said to be the “long-awaited” adaptation of The Silmarillion. The Lord of the Rings is an epic tale set thousands of years before Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, during which time great powers were forged, kingdoms rose to glory and fell to ruin, unlikely heroes were tested, hope hung by a thread, and the world’s greatest villain threatens to cover it in darkness. The series, which began in a time of relative calm, follows an ensemble cast of characters both old and new as they confront the long-anticipated return of evil to Middle-earth. From the dismal mountains of Middle-earth’s Misty Mountains to the beautiful forests of Lindon’s elven empire, to the breathtaking island realm of Númenor, and beyond to distant locations on the map, these realms and people will leave legacies that endure long after they are gone.The majority of the filming took place in New Zealand. It was then announced that production would relocate to the United Kingdom last fall.
The cast includes Cynthia Addai-Robinson, Robert Aramayo, Owain Arthur, Maxim Baldry, Nazanin Boniadi, Morfydd Clark, Ismael Cruz Córdova, Charles Edwards, Trystan Gravelle, Sir Lenny Henry, Ema Horvath, Markella Kavenagh, Joseph Mawle, Tyroe Muhafidin, Sophia Nomvete, Lloyd Owen, Megan Richards, Dylan Smith, Charlie Vickers, Leon Wadham, Benjamin Walker, Daniel Weyman and Sara Zwangobani.
The first season of The Lord of the Rings will premiere on Friday, Sept. 2, exclusively on Prime Video in 240 countries throughout the world. Episodes will be released every week.
