The cast of The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power took flight to the Collider studio in San Diego Comic-Con, talking about Rob Aramayo (Elrond), Trystan Gravelle (Pharazon), Sara Zwangobani (Marigold Brandyfoot), Owain Arthur (Prince Durin IV) and Charles Edwards (Celebrimbor)'s reaction to seeing the first three episodes of the series.
Prime Videos The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power is easily my most anticipated series, thanks to everything Ive seen and heard so far about the showrunners J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay, and I loved that they have developed a five-season arc and the way Amazon is putting all of its cash to use to bring the show to life.
Look at the new teaser and tell me you're not excited to see this program. In addition, J.A. Bayona (A Monster Calls, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom) directed the first two episodes of the season, and I think he's a great choice to set the tone of the series.
Daniel Weyman (The Stranger), Maxim Baldry (Isildur), Ismael Cruz Cordova (Arondir), Ema Horvath (Earien) (Queen Regent Miriel), Nazanin Boniadi, Morfydd Clark, Markella Kavenagh, Tyroe Muhafidin, Lloyd Owen, Dylan Smith, Leon Wadham, and Benjamin Walker (Queen Regent Miriel)

The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power is released for the first time on screens thousands of years before J.R.R. Tolkiens' The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, bringing viewers back to a time when great powers were forged, legendary kingdoms were crowned, unlikely heroes were tested, and the greatest villain ever created threatened to engulf all of Middle-earth in the misty mountains. These kingdoms and characters will be able to maintain their legacy long after
