After dropping various teasers, glimpses, posters, promotional images, snippets, etc., Amazon Prime Video has finally dropped a long teaser of their much anticipated show Lord of the Rings spinoff show, The Rings of Power. This two-and-a-half-minute teaser of its super expensive J.R.R. Tolkien adaptation transports fans back to Middle-earth.

Set in the Second Age, thousands of years before the events of The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit, the Rings of Power spins an epic tale that entails various humans, dwarves, elves, hobbit ancestors, and mysterious magical strangers as all set to unite for the first time as they witness and confront the threat of a growing evil on Middle-earth - Sauron. The newly dropped teaser gives us a glimpse of Sauron's power and rise of evil. Adding to that, the terrifying visions of Galadriel hint at an imminent battle to save the world from Sauron's malice. It also offers a first look at some of Tolkien’s legendary characters from the Second Age.

The makers even dropped an official description of the upcoming show along with the new teaser that said, "This epic drama is set thousands of years before the events of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, 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 the greatest villain 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 re-emergence of evil to 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 furthest reaches of the map, these kingdoms and characters will carve out legacies that live on long after they are gone."

The upcoming fantasy television series starring Morfydd Clark, Robert Aramayo, Benjamin Walker, Maxim Baldry, Lloyd Owen, and Trystan Gravelle among many others, is slated to premiere on Amazon Prime Video on 2 September 2022.
