The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power

"In the land of Mordor where the shadows lie." Amazon Studios has announced the title of its billion-dollar The Lord of the Rings prequel series.

This September, fans (myself included) can venture forth into The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power exclusively on Amazon Prime (affiliate link).

“This is a title that we imagine could live on the spine of a book next to J.R.R. Tolkien’s other classics. The Rings of Power unites all the major stories of Middle-earth’s Second Age: the forging of the rings, the rise of the Dark Lord, the epic tale of Numenor, and the Last Alliance of Elves and Men,” series showrunners J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay said in a joint statement. “Until now, audiences have only seen onscreen the story of the One Ring — but before there was one, there were many … and we’re excited to share the epic story of them all.”

The latest live-action adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's fantasy epic was announced in 2017 and then seemingly lost, like the one ring, to the mists of time. All the while new competitors entered the streaming space including Apple TV+ and Disney+ and a pandemic engulfed the world.

With The Witcher's smash hit second season on Netflix and a Game of Thrones prequel series coming soon on HBO Max, it's an exciting time for us fantasy fans.

Are you excited to return to Middle-earth for the first time since Peter Jackson's The Hobbit trilogy? Let me know in the comments below.
