Tolkien Experts Saw A Sneak Peak Of The Rings Of Power - Here’s What They Think 5

Among the biggest names involved were Shaun Gunner, the chair of the Tolkien Society, and Corey Olsen ‘The Tolkien Professor’ along with his podcasting colleague Dr. Maggie Parke. Representatives from the Fellowship of Fans and fan communities were present, as well as TikTokers Don Marshall and Silmaremily, The Prancing Pony podcast, and more. What I’m saying is, this was a diverse mix of Tolkien creatives, thinkers, and fans, and most of them came away from the event impressed.

The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power is an upcoming American fantasy television series based on stories by J. R. R. Tolkien. Developed by J. D. Payne and Patrick McKay for the streaming service Prime Video, the series is set in the Second Age of Middle-earth, thousands of years before the events of Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. It is produced by Amazon Studios in cooperation with the Tolkien Estate and TrustHarperCollins, and New Line Cinema, with Payne and McKay serving as showrunners.

Amazon bought the television rights for The Lord of the Rings for US$250 million in November 2017, making a five-season production commitment worth at least US$1 billion. This would make it the most expensive television series ever made. Payne and McKay were hired in July 2018, with the rest of the creative team publicly revealed a year later. The series is primarily based on the appendices of The Lord of the Rings, which include discussion of the Second Age, and it features a large, diverse cast from around the world. For legal reasons, it is not a direct continuation of the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit film trilogies, but the production intended to evoke the films with similar production design and younger versions of characters who appear in them. Filming for the first eight-episode season took place in New Zealand, where the films were produced, from February 2020 to August 2021, with a production break of several months during that time due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The season is scheduled to premiere on Prime Video on September 2, 2022.

In August 2021, Amazon announced that production for future seasons would take place in the United Kingdom. Filming for the second season is expected to begin by mid-2022.



Set thousands of years before the events of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, the series is based on author J. R. R. Tolkien‘s history of Middle-earth. It begins during a time of relative peace and covers all the major events of Middle-earth’s Second Age: the forging of the Rings of Power, the rise of the Dark Lord Sauron, the fall of the island kingdom of Númenor, and the last alliance between Elves and Men.[1] These events take place over thousands of years in Tolkien’s original stories, but are condensed for the series.[2]
