The new preview introduces the island kingdom of Númenor. The characters there include Isildur (Maxim Baldry), Elendil (Lloyd Owen), Pharazôn (Trystan Gravelle) and Queen Regent Míriel (Cynthia Addai-Robinson).

In addition, the teaser gives a look at the Elven realms of Lindon and Eregion, the Dwarven realm Khazad-dûm, the Southlands, the Northernmost Wastes and the Sundering Seas.

Morfydd Clark stars as Galadriel, with Robert Aramayo as Elrond and Benjamin Walker as High King Gil-galad.

The Rings of Power takes place thousands of years before the events of J.R.R. Tolkien's book The Hobbit and his Lord of the Rings book series. The series follows an ensemble cast of characters as they confront the long-feared re-emergence of evil to Middle-earth.

It "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," an official synopsis reads.
