The new teaser of The Lord of the Rings

Very close to the debut of The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, the new, ambitious TV series based on Tolkien's books that will make its debut in less than two months. And Amazon Prime Video, the platform that will host it, is building an ad hoc strategy to increase curiosity. To the usual succession of trailers, however, one more detail has been added: the new teaser published in the past few hours, in fact, is only available for Prime subscribers. Going directly to the platform home, paid users will find this "exclusive Prime preview" included among the other titles in the catalog. It is not excluded that sooner or later the teaser will not also arrive on YouTube and other portals, as usually happens for the promotion of films and series, but for now its vision is reserved for a selected audience.

In addition to the short taste published on social media, here we can give you some details on what happens in less than a minute of video. As we know The Rings of Power is set thousands of years before the adventures of Frodo and his companions that we saw in the Peter Jackson trilogy. As we read in the official synopsis "starting from a period of relative peace, we follow a group of characters as they face the return of evil in Middle-earth". In particular, the various episodes will take us from the dark depths of the Misty Mountains to the majestic forests of Lindon, to the incredible island-kingdom of Númenor and to the furthest reaches of the map of this fantastic universe.

And all these lands, or rather the skies above them, are crossed in the video by a strange fiery comet: "The skies are strange", says the actor Lenny Henry in the role of Sadoc Burrows , one of the members of the lineage of the pelopod hobbits, ancestors of the small creatures we all know. In rapid succession other characters are seen watching with concern the passage of the mysterious mass of fire: Gil-galad (Benjamin Walker), elf who is the last supreme king of the Noldor; Galadriel (Morfydd Clark), the elven princess we see here as a young man before playing Cate Blanchett in the Jackson films; the prince of the dwarves Durin IV (Owain Arthur); a young Elrond, here played by Robert Aramayo even if many remember his adult version to which Hugo Weaving gives the face; and more new characters like Arondir and Bronwyn.

“The journey begins”, the clip reads again before announcing that a new teaser will be released, it is imagined in the same way, starting from July 14th. In short, we are fast approaching the debut of the series of The Lord of the Rings which will take place on 2 September. Meanwhile this week Amazon Prime Video has surprisingly selected 20 subscribers who will be invited to the global premiere which will take place next August in London.

“The skies are strange,” Burrows says in the video, which will only be available for 48 hours.

Rings of Power will premiere Friday, Sept. 2 on Prime Video. (Head here for everything we know so far about the series.)

Set during the Second Age, the fantasy epic will cover major events from that period including Sauron’s ascension; the forging of the Rings of Power, which the Dark Lord gifted to humans, elves and dwarves and secretly controlled with his master ring (aka the One Ring to Rule Them All); the rise and fall of Númenor, the island of men from which Aragorn is descended; and the Last Alliance of Elves and Men, a final stand against Sauron (depicted in the prologue of Peter Jackson’s Fellowship of the Ring).
