J.A. Bayona said in an interview with Empire that The Rings of Power series is not even a television show.

The Rings Of Power is not television. It’s a new form we’re creating here,” the director explained.

The Lord Of The Rings Prequel Will Be More Exciting

Showrunners Patrick McKay and J.D. Payne also mentioned in an interview, per MovieWeb, that the upcoming prequel is different from Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings movie trilogy. They said the series will have more fight scenes than any show they have watched.

The siege at Helm’s Deep is so iconic and amazing that it was like, ‘What’s a different thing that we can do that still feels like Middle-earth but is unique for this story?” Payne said.

The show has a lot of action in it – more so than any television or streaming show that we’ve seen. Every episode has set pieces, creatures, battles, and white-knuckle fights to the death. But instead of having 10,000 Orcs fighting 10,000 men, what’s it like to have one Orc in your face, in your kitchen? What’s it like trying to kill an Orc when you’ve never killed an Orc before?” McKay added.

The Rings of Power is based on JRR Tolkien’s famous novel, The Lord of the Rings, and it features original and new characters. The story is intended to be a five-season series and will occur thousands of years before the events in The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit.

Filming began in February 2020 but experienced a delay due to the pandemic. They resumed production in September of the same year and wrapped up in early August 2021. The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power will arrive on Prime Video this September 2, 2022.
