The Lord Of The Rings: The Rings Of Power Dropped A New Exciting Teaser Trailer

The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power aims to insert fans back into Middle-earth this Fall, and they are getting fans ready with a new teaser trailer released today.

Fresh on the heels of the new Gollum trailer, Amazon Studios has joined the teaser trailer fray by releasing a brand new, very brief trailer for The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, which features many fan-favourite characters fans will recognize instantly, even though the original actors aren’t reprising their roles. Fans are looking at a Cate Blanchett-less, combat weary Galadriel, but a whole new series to dive into, and the trailer can be seen below.

The trailer highlights the second age of Middle-earth’s history, which is set thousands of years before The Hobbit, and the trilogy that brought the words of J.R.R. Tolkien to millions around the world, starting with The Fellowship of the Ring. The showrunners have unfortunately confirmed that they do not have access to the rights of Tolkien’s more world building works such as The Samarillion, or The History of Middle-earth, but they do retain the rights to The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings trilogies. Another returning aspect is the series will be shot in the beautiful locales of New Zealand, like The Lord of the Rings trilogy.

With newcomers the Harfoots Marigold Brandyfoot (Sara Zwangobani), Elanor ‘Nori’ Brandyfoot (Markella Kavenagh), Poppy Proudfellow (Megan Richards) and Sadoc Burrows (Sir Lenny Henry), The Stranger (Daniel Weyman), the Dwarves King Durin III (Peter Mullan) and Prince Durin IV (Owain Arthur), Halbrand (Charlie Vickers), and Arondir (Ismael Cruz Córdova), to round out the vagabond group of POVs fans can expect to follow.

Of course, in staple The Lord of the Rings fashion, Hobbits were featured near the end of the trailer, and travelling thousands of years in the past still hasn’t solved their aversion to shoes. Fans can look forward to the exciting return to Middle-earth when The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power launches on September 2nd on Prime Video.
