The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power Release Date Status, Cast And Latest News

The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power has a lot riding on it. The first trailer for Prime Video’s biggest TV show of 2022 suggests that it will be a major hit among fans.

A two-minute teaser doesn’t ensure that a show will succeed, especially if it’s positioned as a precursor to Peter Jackson’s famed Middle-earth trilogy. Still, the debut trailer for The Rings of Power garnered 257 million views in the first 24 hours after its release, so there’s certainly a lot of interest in the show.

Additionally, Amazon Studios will be betting that its big-budget fantasy Prime Video show will be worth the expense.  An estimated $250 million was spent on the production of the first season of the show, which is higher than the cost of another Prime Video fantasy series called The Wheel of Time.

Amazon’s Lord of the Rings should do just as well as its fantasy cousin, whose live-action adaption was well-received by critics and fans alike.

Additionally, it appears that the September 2022 release of Lord of the Rings season 1 will have an impact on the arrival of The Wheel of Time season 2.

The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power Trailer

The first trailer for The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power was released during Super Bowl LVI (in February 2022), and it’s jam-packed with action, gorgeous landscape shots, and intriguing indications about the main plot.

Shots of crucial elven characters Gil-galad and Elrond are shown in the Forodwaith, as well as glimpses of the dwarves who live in the Misty Mountains. A mysterious meteor streaks through the sky, and the harfoots, the Hobbit’s predecessors, are also introduced. There’s also a guy within, and who has the potential to have a big impact on future events in Middle-earth.

The teaser trailer is a good place to start if you’d like to learn more about what you see in it.

The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power Cast

There are 13 characters (and the actors who’ll portray them) that we know about so far.

  • Morfydd Clark as Galadriel
  • Robert Aramayo as Elrond
  • Benjamin Walker as Gil-galad
  • Owain Arthur as Durin IV
  • Sophia Nomvete as Disa
  • Maxim Baldry as Isildur
  • Nazanin Boniadi as Bronwyn
  • Ismael Cruz Córdova as Arondir
  • Markella Kavenagh as Elanor “Nori” Brandyfoot
  • Charles Edwards as Celebrimbor
  • Charlie Vickers as Halbrand
  • Daniel Weyman as The Stranger
  • Will Fletcher as Finrod

It has been confirmed that Saint Maud’s Morfydd Clark will play Galadriel. According to Vanity Fair’s first-look piece, Galadriel will take leadership of the Northern Armies and will be searching for the agents of Morgoth and Sauron who killed her elf siblings.

Many elves, both renowned and obscure, will play a role in the storyline, so keep an eye out for them. Elrond, the mythical elf, will be played by Robert Aramayo (Game of Thrones), whereas Gil-galad, the famous elf, will be played by Benjamin Walker.

Celebrimbor, the elven smith who crafts the Rings of Power for Sauron, will be played by Charles Edwards (The Crown). While disguised, the Dark Lord manipulates Celebrimbor into creating them.

The role of the dwarfs is equally crucial. One of Casualty’s most famous actors, Owain Arthur, has been cast as Prince Durin IV of Khazad-dûm. In the meantime, Sophia Nomvete, a newbie to the acting scene, will play Princess Disa, the first-ever female dwarf in a live-action Lord of the Rings project.

Charlie Vickers (Medici) will take on the role of Halbrand, a new human character who is rumored to be running from something in his past. Early on in the series, he’ll run upon Galadriel, but it’s not apparent if the two of them will band together for the greater good or just to stay alive.

The Stranger and Nori Brandyfoot have been cast, and they are both played by Markella Kavenagh and Daniel Weyman, respectively, from The Cry and Gentleman Jack. Harfoots are one of three pre-hobbit races in that Weyman’s character crashes into Middle-earth in a meteor.

Nori, a harfoot, rescues Weyman’s character. The identity of the Stranger is one of the teaser’s most intriguing mysteries. We believe he will play a significant role in the future because of the level of mystery around him.

Although the identities of these characters have been confirmed, there are still nine others whose whereabouts remain a mystery.

The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power Plot

Showrunners J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay teased more about how they approached the story creation of The Rings of Power in their teaser trailer.

“[It’s the story of] The forging of the rings. Rings for the elves, rings for dwarves, rings for men, and then the one ring Sauron used to deceive them all. It’s the story of the creation of all those powers, where they came from, and what they did to each of those races. [We thought] ‘Can we come up with the novel Tolkien never wrote and do it as the mega-event series that could only happen now?’” Mckay explained.

Since the show’s announcement, comparisons between Amazon’s Lord of the Rings and Peter Jackson’s film trilogy have been widely discussed. And the showrunners of The Rings of Power were painfully aware of the need to do justice to the live-action films that came before them.

In other words, when does The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power take place? After over 3,500 years, the Second Age of Middle-earth came to an end with the destruction of Sauron by the Last Alliance of men and elves.

Since this was the opening night of The Fellowship of the Ring, we shouldn’t be surprised to see it reprised in Amazon’s TV series. We’re convinced that the final episode or two of the series, whenever that may be, will involve Sauron, given how crucial he is to the studio’s TV adaptation.

That, though, is still a long way off. In Vanity Fair’s estimation, The Rings of Power will take a long time to get to the Second Age’s final showdown, as the series will cover a wide range of Middle-earth locales and tales.

Some scenes from the First Age of Middle-earth may also be shown. The teaser clip purportedly portrays Finrod, Galadriel’s brother, fighting Morgoth and Sauron’s army in the First Age, which necessitates that the battle take place during that time. In the show’s first few episodes, you can expect to get some backstory on the First Age.
