Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power – new trailer

Before Bilbo and Frodo bandied the all-powerful ring about Middle-earth, Galadriel and pals were fighting the rise of evil.

Ahead of The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power‘s 2 September 2 release date, the cast and creators took to the stage at San Diego Comic-Con to reveal new details about the upcoming prequel series.

‘Have you heard of Sauron?’

The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power 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 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.
