The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power First Trailer Teased During Super Bowl LVI

February 14, 2022 Share

Prime Video’s long-awaited Lord of the Rings spin-off series showed its first signs of life on Sunday evening, causing Tolkien fans, pop culture fans, and football fans alike to pause for a moment and rejoice.

IT’S official. The whimsical world of Lord of the Rings is returning to your screens, and now we have proof. Proof that LOTR fans no longer need to re-watch the 20 or so hours of the original Tolkien-inspired movies over and over again. Well, let’s not be too hasty.

The proof has come in the form of a 60-second teaser trailer offering viewers their first-ever audio-visual glimpses of J.R.R. Tolkien’s fabled Second Age, set thousands of years before the events of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings books.

Featuring Elves, Dwarves, Humans, and stunning Arda environments (Arda is the world that contains Middle Earth, Aman, and other lands in the Tolkien universe), the teaser trailer takes viewers on a journey through what looks to be an incredibly well-rendered version of Middle Earth. Have a look at the trailer below:

The wonders of technological advancements. But then again, Amazon has spent a reported $1 billion (£800m) on the series, so we can expect nothing but the best.

As for the characters and what we know about the series so far, a young Galadriel, played by Morfydd Clark, can be seen clinging onto an icy cliff face with a dagger, while Halbrand (Charlie Vickers) is seemingly stranded on a raft in the ocean.

Arondir (Ismael Cruz Cordova), a silvan elf, plucks a flying arrow from the air, before Prince Durin IV (Owain Arthur) appears in a state of deep thought.

We also see a young Elrond (Robert Aramayo), while Disa, princess of Khazad-dum (Sophia Nomvete), sings to the heavens, and a soldier (Will Fletcher) battles an orc.

Fans took to Twitter to announce their excitement at the trailer after waiting years for the series to take form.

The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power will be available to watch on Amazon Prime on September 2.
