Here’s Our First Look At Amazon’s Rings Of Power TV Show

Amazon has finally shown our first proper look at Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power ahead of a teaser trailer this weekend.

In an article by Vanity Fair, we got out first look at some of the characters, settings and scenarios in the show.

Apparently, the series will “juggle 22 stars and multiple story lines”. It’ll take place in many locations, such as deep within dwarven mines, the elven kingdom of Lindon and the human’s island of Númenor.


New Characters and Old Faces

New characters exclusive to the show have been confirmed. These include Arondir, an elf played by Ismael Cruz Córdova and Halbrand, a human played by Charlie Vickers.

It also confirms a focus on returning characters Galadriel and Elrond. Galadriel will be a major character in the show, played by Morfydd Clark. And Elrond is played by Robert Aramayo, who Game of Thrones fans may remember as young Ned Stark in Season 6.

The show is set during the second age. And despite there being no hobbits confirmed during the second age in the original story, the show has found a way to include them. Hobbit ancestors called “harfoots” will make an appearance instead.


The show has been shrouded in secrecy until this point, but now that we know much more about the characters and story fan theories and excitement are sure to start building up.

A teaser trailer is set to be release at the Super Bowl this Sunday. That’ll be the first big hurdle for Amazon, which is looking to prove itself to Lord of the Rings fans.
