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 prequel series follows an ensemble cast of characters as they confront the long-feared re-emergence of evil to Middle-earth.
J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay serve as showrunners, while Cynthia Addai-Robinson, Robert Aramayo, Owain Arthur, Maxim Baldry, Nazanin Boniadi, Morfydd Clark, Ismael Cruz Córdova, Charles Edwards, Trystan Gravelle and Markella Kavenagh star.
Amazon released a trailer for the show in July that shows Galadriel (Clark) see visions of war.
