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.

SO many TV series, films, youtube videos, but so little time...I used to read a lot, now don't even have enough time for reading...sad!

Stuart Whibley said...

Looks good, I don’t know why lots of people are complaining?

Weaver said...

Wow. Looks interesting. Tolkien had plenty of material to draw from. I wonder if they'll be using that as a resource.

DEZMOND said...

I made quite a reading record this year, as I have already read about six or seven, maybe even ten books in January and February.

DEZMOND said...

I have not read comments yet around the net, I guess they do not like the diverse cast, but the scenes and quality of production seen in this teaser are really stunning, I just hope the scripts will be good. I do not like Morfydd who plays Galadriel but I am willing to give her a chance.

DEZMOND said...

Just as a resource, but the series is only inspired by his work as it is set thousands of years before what he wrote about.

Theresa Mahoney said...

The teaser was beautifully done. I’m sure the series will be visually stunning.

DEZMOND said...

I think the whole world will be watching it next September, I loved it I must admit, looks splendid, just hope the scripts are good as I did not like Wheel of Time at all.

The rings of power looks different and exciting. I think i need to buy prime video! But not sure worth it or not.

DEZMOND said...

They do have a lot of programmes and shows, but it is difficult finding out what they have LOL

Jax said...

I loved reading his books when I was younger. I’m a little nervous that they’ll ruin it for me with this pre-pre-prequal! Unless, of course, if they make a last minute casting change to include Orlando Bloom. Then I’m all in!

DEZMOND said...

There is Benjamin Walker in it, he is quite hotter than Orly, and so is Maxim Baldry. Charly Wickers ain't bad either.

Jax said...

Of the three, I still prefer Bloom, but Maxim Baldry is a very close second.

DEZMOND said...

He is very lovely indeed. I bet there will be some hot elves too in it.
