SDCC 2022: The Lord of The Rings: The Rings of Power drops a new trailer
The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power will premiere on Amazon Prime Video on September 2
Amazon Prime Video's much-awaited series The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power official trailer was released at San Diego Comic-Con on Friday night.
The thrilling trailer focuses on the long-feared reemergence of evil in middle-earth and gives a first look at some of the spine-tingling characters that the series’ heroes will be battling.
In addition to an exclusive San Diego Comic-Con trailer, sneak peeks of several scenes from the series were revealed. The series creators and ensemble cast assembled on the prestigious Hall H stage, thrilling 6,500 fans who packed the convention centre hall after camping overnight on the streets of San Diego in hopes of witnessing the history-making event.
In a surprise and delight moment, The Late Show host—and Tolkien superfan—Stephen Colbert was revealed as the panel’s moderator. He joined series Showrunners J.D. Payne & Patrick McKay, Executive Producer Lindsey Weber, and 21 members of the ensemble cast for a panel that was among the largest for a single series in San Diego Comic-Con history.
During the epic 90-minute event, the cast and creators interacted with fans in person for the very first time, discussing their love of JRR Tolkien’s incredible legendarium and the gratifying process of bringing the beloved author’s fabled Second Age to life—from the series’ new and legendary characters, to the incredible realms of middle-earth, including the island of Númenor, which has never before been seen on screen.
In a special Hall H-first moment, Emmy award-winning composer Bear McCreary, who created the series’ episodic score, took to the stage with a 25-piece orchestra and 16-person choir to treat the audience to an exclusive live performance of highlights of the never-before-heard series soundtrack.
The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power will premiere on Prime Video in more than 240 countries and territories around the world in multiple languages including English, Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada on Friday, September 2, with new episodes available weekly.
The series brings to screens for the very first time the heroic legends of the fabled second age of middle-earth's history. This epic drama is set thousands of years before the events of JRR Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings books and will take viewers back to an era in which 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.
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.
