Amazon Prime’s Lord Of The Rings: The Rings Of Power is one of the most anticipated shows of this decade. After so many months of waiting, we get a primetime sneak peek. And suffice it to say, we did not expect this level of crypticism. Lord Of The Rings: The Rings Of Power did reveal 23 different character posters. But they are not at all what you think they might be. None of the character posters reveal a single face.
All we can see is their hands, their fingers craving for the power of the One Ring.

Lord Of The Rings: The Rings Of Power is set in the Second Age of Middle Earth. The second age happens during the time when Sauron rose to power and forged the rings of powers, including the almighty and all-powerful One Ring. The One Ring, which was the McGuffin that drove most of the Tolkien novels and the LOTR and Hobbit trilogy of movies, will also be central to the series plotline.
What The Shot-Callers Have To Say
Showrunners Patrick McKay and J.D. Payne reveal further details about Lord Of The Rings: The Rings Of Power:
“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 Sauron, the epic tale of Númenor, and the Last Alliance of Elves and Men. Until now, audiences have only seen on-screen 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.”
Amazon Studios exec Tal Yguado, who heads the Prime scripted programming division, said Amazon was committed to multiple season of the show. In an interview, she said and we quote:
“The Lord of the Rings is a cultural phenomenon that has captured the imagination of generations of fans through literature and the big screen. We are honored to be working with the Tolkien Estate and Trust, HarperCollins and New Line on this exciting collaboration for television and are thrilled to be taking The Lord of the Rings fans on a new epic journey in Middle Earth.”
Lord Of The Rings: The Rings Of Power debuts on September 2 on Amazon Prime Video. Are you excited after taking a gander at the posters? We know we are!!
