The Rings of Power Trailer
The official teaser for the series was released in January giving a glimpse of what is coming. It has a voice note saying “Three rings for the Elven Kings under the sky, Seven for the Dwarf Lords and their Halls of Stone, nine for mortal men doomed to die, One for the Dark Lord on his Dark Throne, in the land of Mordor where the shadows lie.“
Now, the trailer gives an elaborated viewpoint, however, it is not enough. The scenes are all set in the period of Middle-earth history. Thousands of years before the events of The Hobbit or The Lord of the Rings. It 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 threads, and the greatest villain that ever flowed from Tolkien’s pen threatened to cover all the world in darkness.
