The Rings of Power released their first teaser trailer.

Basic video

Before Frodo and Sam reach Mount Doom to destroy the only ring, thousands of years of history unfold in the fictional world of Middle-earth. Amazon Prime Video has released its first teaser trailer for the upcoming series The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Powerduring Super Bowl on Sunday. It’s only a minute long, but it gives us the first correct look at the new series. See it below.

“There are wonders in this world beyond our wanderings,” says a young voice at the beginning of the trailer. We see an abundance of hills, a detailed city, huge icebergs, arrowheads, horseback riding and, perhaps not as impressive as anticipated, the CGI tone.

We also see flashes of protagonists, including the curious Harfout (Marcella Cavena), Arondir (Ismael Cruz Cordova), Galadriel (Morphide Clark) and Elrond (Robert Aramayo), along with Benjamin Walker and Simon Merrells in undisclosed roles.

The action of the Rings of Power takes place during the Second Age of Middle-earth, which took place thousands of years before the events of The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings. The teaser followed the release of a series of images from the show, close-ups of hands holding various objects such as swords, which led fans to speculate on social media who the characters might be based on the elements and visible costumes.

The show itself has a total production cost of over $ 1 billion, according to The Hollywood Reporter, and Amazon has reportedly had to commit to leaving five seasons.

“The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power” airs on Prime Video on September 2.
