Lord of the Rings: Rings of Power is giving the world of Middle Earth a new lease on life, and we can’t wait to get our hands on it.
Rings of Power has an eye-popping budget and is one of the most enviable casts of established stars and rising stars. Fans will not want to miss it.
But Prime Video has kept this series a secret and only given out the smallest amount of information about it.
But that’s why you have us: we’re ready and have all the information you need in one place so you don’t have to.
So, what’s coming?
Here is all the information you need about the epic fantasy series.

The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power release date
— The Lord of the Rings on Prime (@LOTRonPrime) February 3, 2022
On September 2, 2022, audiences will be able to see Lord of the Rings: Rings of Power in theaters.
There will be eight episodes in the first season, although it’s unclear whether they’ll be released weekly or all at once.
More from this bold new (but yet familiar) universe is on the way, as season two has been officially approved.
Prime’s 2017 purchase of the show’s rights (with rumors of a $1 billion investment to get it on our screens… talk about epic) included a clause guaranteeing at least five seasons.
That means we’re down to the final few months of anticipation.
Where can I watch it?
Starting on September 2, Prime Video will be the only place to see The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power. Log into your account if you have a Prime subscription to watch Prime Video for free.
The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power synopsis
The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power finally has an official synopsis, and it has been revealed that it will take place before the events of The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings trilogies.
In actuality, it takes place during the Second Age of Middle Earth, when”great powers were forged, kingdoms rose to glory and fell to ruin, unlikely heroes were tested, hope hung by the finest of threads, and one of the greatest villains that ever flowed from Tolkien’s pen threatened to cover all the world in darkness.”
The rest of the synopsis: “Beginning in a time of relative peace, the series follows an ensemble cast of characters, both familiar and new, as they confront the long-feared reemergence of evil on Middle Earth. From the darkest depths of the Misty Mountains to the majestic forests of the elf-capital of Lindon, to the breathtaking island kingdom of Númenor, to the farthest reaches of the map, these kingdoms and characters will carve out legacies that live on long after they are gone.”
The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power cast
The number of actors in Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power is huge, so let’s start with the biggest names: Morfydd Clark, who plays Maud in the TV show Saint Maud, has agreed to play a young Galadriel. Will Poulter’s role as a young Elrond was taken over by Robert Aramayo, who played a young Ned Stark in Game of Thrones. Maxim Baldry, who used to be best known as the kid from Mr. Bean’s Holiday (yes, we’re old), will play Isildur, the future king.
McKay told Vanity Fair, “When you meet Isildur, he’s like Michael Corleone” (opens in new tab). “He is the youngest and most optimistic member of the family. Find out what tragic choice that guy made at the end instead of a stupid mistake.”
These are the three most well-known characters in the new show, except for Sauron, whose role hasn’t been cast yet.
#TheRingsOfPower, set within Tolkien’s Second Age, will juggle 22 stars and multiple storylines—from deep within the dwarf mines to the elven kingdom of Lindon. Here, the adventures of the fellowship are still some 2,000 years in the future.

Alums of Game of Thrones Oren will be played by Joseph Mawle, a veteran TV and movie actor who is best known for playing Benjen Stark. No one with that name shows up in the books. Durin IV, the prince of the ruined dwarven mines of Khazad-dûm, is played by Owain Arthur in the Lord of the Rings trilogy. You can expect to see the Khazad-dûm at its best. His partner, Disa, is played by Sophia Nomvete. Fans are already upset because it looks like she doesn’t have a beard.
The harfoots are the hobbits’ ancestors, and Lenny Henry, Megan Richards, and Markella Kavenagh all play them. Ismael Cruz Córdova will play the elf Arondir, and Nazanin Boniadi will play Bronwyn, a human who is in love with him but can’t have him. Fans of J.R.R. Tolkien think that their relationship will be like the one between human Beren and elf Luthien, which Aragorn and Arwen mentioned. Theo, who is played by Tyrone Muhafidin, is Bronwyn’s son.
Charles Edwards, who is from Britain, will play Celebrimbor, the elf who makes the Rings of Power. Tom Budge was supposed to play the part, but he dropped out of the show because he didn’t like the way it was being made. Ben Walker will play Gil-galad, the king of the high elves. Charlie Vickers will play a person who is close to Galadriel. Simon Merrells will play Trevyn, and Daniel Weyman will play a mysterious Stranger.
Ema Horvath, Dylan Smith, Peter Mullan, Ian Blackburn (Shelter), Kip Chapman (Top of the Lake), Anthony Crum (The Wild), Maxine Cunliffe (Power Rangers Megaforce), Tryston Gravelle (The Terror), Thusitha Jayasundera (Broadchurch), Fabian McCallum (You, Me, and the Apocalypse), Simon Merrells (Good Omens), Geoff Morrell (Top of the Also, Peter Tait will be in the show. He played Shagrat, a Black Uruk, in The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. Shagrat found Frodo after Shelob poisoned him. Maybe he’ll be playing another scary creature?
Sir Ian McKellen, who played the wise wizard Gandalf in the three Lord of the Rings movies and the three Hobbit movies, has said that no one else could play the role. “You mean there’s another Gandalf?” When Graham Norton asked McKellen if someone else could play the part, McKellen said yes. “I haven’t said yes because I haven’t been asked. But are you saying that it will be played by someone else? Since Gandalf is older than 7,000 years, I’m not too old.”
Lord of the Rings: Rings of Power trailer
Right away! On February 14, the trailer was made available, and it already exceeds expectations in terms of epicness.
It whizzes over a variety of the world’s environments, including treacherous ice mountains, treacherous waterfalls, and desolate areas.
We also meet others of the cast for the first time, who all appear to be out on their own adventures (we counted four potential storylines).
There will also be a huge army fight, as is also to be expected.
We eagerly await the results of this.
