After the controversy of the last few days, Prime Video has released a new trailer for The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, the prequel series due out on September 2, 2022. Set in the Second Age of Middle-earth, thousands of years before the events narrated in The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien, the video shows us a fiery comet-like object, hovering across the land, presenting the various lands and creatures of the series, including elves, an ancient race of hobbits, humans, ents and dwarves, all of whom they observe the flow of fire from afar.

The video features some of the key characters of the TV series, including Sadoc Burrows (Lenny Henry ), High King Gil-galad (Benjamin Walker), Galadriel (Morfydd Clark), Prince Durin IV (Owain Arthur), Elrond (Robert Aramayo), Arondir (Ismael Cruz Córdova) and Bronwyn (Nazanin Boniadi).

Based on the characters and the world built by Tolkien, The Rings of Power is expected to last 50 hours and five seasons as a whole. In a recent interview, showrunners JD Payne and Patrick McKay explained how the prequel series will stand out from Peter Jackson's original Lord of the Rings trilogy. Notably, The Rings of Power will have more action sequences than "any TV show or stream we've ever seen".

The Rings of Power cast includes original characters such as the wood elf Arondir played by Ismael Cruz Cordova, the human healer Bronwyn (Nazanin Boniadi), the dwarf princess Disa (Sophia Nomvete), the elf blacksmith Celebrimbor (Charles Edwards) and the human Halbrand, played by Charlie Vickers. Lenny Henry, Megan Richards and Markella Kavenagh take on the role of the ancestors of the Hobbits known as harfoot. To stay on the subject, on Amazon you can buy Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings trilogy in DVD version.
