After brief teases of it last week, Amazon Prime has released the 2.5 minute full official trailer for its mega-budget series “The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power”.
Expected to run at least five seasons at a cost of well over $1 billion and showrun by Patrick McKay and JD Payne, the film unfolds in Middle Earth’s Second Age – thousands of years before the events of “The Lord of the Rings”.
The story begins with the wicked god Morgoth having been defeated and his apprentice, Sauron, has vanished. Galadriel is hunting down the last remnants of their collaborators who also killed her brother.
J.A. Bayona (“Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom”) helms the first two episodes of the series which debut on September 2nd.
