The “Lord of the Rings” series from Amazon is one of the most anticipated projects to appear this year. Now there is new information about the plot.
It is already known that Amazon spares no expense or effort. The series project is expected to devour over a billion dollars. Five seasons with eight to ten episodes each are currently planned. The first two seasons are currently in production and should be shot in one go. Filming in New Zealand is set to continue this winter. The two-part pilot of the series, directed by JA Bayona (“Seven Minutes After Midnight”) is said to be already finished. Most recently, the studio had officially announced numerous cast members (DIGITAL TELEVISION reported).
A journey through time
In general, there is a big secret around the “Lord of the Rings” series. The portal The One Ring has now published a first synopsis from Amazon, which gives an impression of what it should be about. It is now confirmed: The series will play long before the iconic series. In the text on the Internet it says:
The upcoming series from Amazon Studios brings the hero legends of the fabled Second Age of Middle-earth history to screens for the first time. Set thousands of years before the events of JRR Tolkien’s “The Hobbit” and “The Lord of the Rings,” this epic drama will take viewers back to a time when great powers were forged, kingdoms rose to fame and fell into ruin, unlikely Heroes were tested, hope hung by the finest strings, and the greatest villain that ever flowed from Tolkien’s pen threatened to plunge the whole world into darkness.
Beginning in a time of relative peace, the series follows an ensemble of familiar and new characters who face the long-feared return of evil to Middle-earth. From the darkest depths of the Misty Mountains to the majestic forests of the elven capital Lindon, the breathtaking island realm of Númenor to the most distant parts of the map, these kingdoms and characters will create legacies that will live on long after their end.
The synopsis naturally caused quite a stir and speculation on the internet. Numerous fans assume that the main villain Sauron, who is already known from “The Lord of the Rings”, plays a central role. The series also takes place in the age when the mighty rings were forged. With such a material and such an order of magnitude, it is quite possible that no particularly detailed description of the content will appear before it is immediately published. Such an approach is known from the comparable “Game of Thrones” series, which recently almost completely dispensed with content descriptions for its episodes due to the hype and spoiler fears.
Until the start of the fantasy series, or at least until the first trailer, fans will continue to take guesswork. It is not yet officially known when exactly the “Lord of the Rings” series will start. It was originally supposed to start this year. It is speculated that Amazon is aiming for a release around Christmas time.
