The highly anticipated multi-season series The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power will make a two-episode premiere exclusively on Prime Video on Friday, September 2. Following the premiere, episodes will be available weekly.
To get fans ready for the series, a new 2-minute-and-36-second trailer has been released.
The trailer showcases the expanse of Middle-earth in its Second Age and offers a glimpse at how the legendary characters from the mind of J.R.R. Tolkien will come together against all odds and monumental distances to band together against the re-emergence of evil in Middle-earth. In this era, thousands of years before The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings books, kingdoms will rise to glory and fall to ruin, unlikely heroes will be tested, all while hope hangs by a fine thread as one of the greatest villains ever penned by Tolkien threatens to cover the world in darkness.
The trailer, which can be viewed below, features key cast members Galadriel (Morfydd Clark), Elrond (Robert Aramayo), High King Gil-galad (Benjamin Walker), and Celebrimbor (Charles Edwards); Harfoots Elanor “Nori” Brandyfoot (Markella Kavenagh) and Largo Brandyfoot (Dylan Smith); The Stranger (Daniel Weyman); Númenóreans Isildur (Maxim Baldry), Eärien (Ema Horvath), Elendil (Lloyd Owen), Pharazôn (Trystan Gravelle), and Queen Regent Míriel (Cynthia Addai-Robinson); Dwarves King Durin III (Peter Mullan), Prince Durin IV (Owain Arthur), and Princess Disa (Sophia Nomvete); Southlanders Halbrand (Charlie Vickers); Bronwyn (Nazanin Boniadi); and Silvan-elf Arondir (Ismael Cruz Córdova).
