Fans have been hotly anticipating Amazon’s Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, series for years. The primary two episodes were finally dropped this week to be eagerly enjoyed over the long Labor Day weekend, but there’s six more episodes to return.
The brand new series is a prequel to The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings trilogy set throughout the “Second Age.” It covers Sauron’s rise to power, the forging of the Rings of Power and their distribution, and the way the One Ring to Rule Them All got loose. It’ll also reference quite a few events which can be incessantly spoken of in the opposite adaptations of J.R.R. Tolkien’s work, just like the trials and tribulations on Númenor (which is where Aragorn’s ancestors hail from) and the Last Alliance of Elves and Men, which is discussed within the prologue of Peter Jackson’s Fellowship of the Ring as the large stand against Sauron.
