The Final Trailer for Rings of Power is here...

The Rings of Power
Prime Video's The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power brings to screens for the very first time the heroic legends of the fabled Second Age of Middle-earth's history. This epic drama is set thousands of years before the events of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, and 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. Beginning in a time of relative peace, the series follows an ensemble cast of characters, both familiar and new, as they confront the long-feared re-emergence of evil to Middle-earth. From the darkest depths of the Misty Mountains, to the majestic forests of the elf-capital of Lindon, to the breathtaking island kingdom of NĂºmenor, to the furthest reaches of the map, these kingdoms and characters will carve out legacies that live on long after they are gone.
Watch the Official Trailer
Join us in Middle-earth on September 2.

Rings of Power Trailer gets DESTROYED with Hilarious Comments!
When Galadriel pulled out her lightsaber and said, "Wakanda forever" sent shivers up my spine. Tolkien couldn't have written anything better
- V. Lighting

When Gollum dropped the ring and said his trademark, "Did I do that?" while pushing in his glasses and snapping his suspenders, it brought tears to my eyes.. so faithfully adapted from Tolkien's writings.

When Galadriel stood face to face with the Balrog watching it twirl it's sword and whip around with jaw-dropping skill and dexterity and then she pulls the revolver from her hip and shoots it before turning nonchalantly away.... Just cinematic gold and so true to Tolkiens vision! Extraordinary!
- Mr Agincourt
My favourite scene was when Galadriel and Elrond were talking about Cheesburgers in France, threatend some guys and retreved the MacGuffin. And I especially loved it, when Galadriel quoted Ezekiel 25:17 and then they shot those wannebe gansters.
- MurphysLawBroker
I loved it when Elrond asks her “What is your last name?” And she turns around with a grin, replying “Skywalker. Galadriel Skywalker.”
- Major Gear
I'm so proud that the creators truly know the original Tolkien lore, the moment when Sauron sank the Titanic was a cathartic moment indeed. Literal chills.
- Teuton89
When the young Anakin dons his ring, charges into battle and proudly exclaims, "Now THIS is ring crafting!" I was overwhelmed with emotion
- Fattiger
Absolutely loved it when the five rings of the Olympics were revealed as the Rings of Power and the War was decided through peaceful athletic contest. I almost cried when Sauron won the sailboat race and Elrond dominated in table tennis. So classic Tolkien.

When Galadriel said with a dramatic pause "And I ... am all the Jedi", it was just perfection. 
- George was right
