He was one of the trailers most anticipated of the superbowl and it is that Amazon Studios has wanted to take advantage of the massive audience that this sporting event gathers in the United States (and in the rest of the world) to launch the first trailer for the series that will arrive on Amazon Prime Video next September. ‘The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power‘ is one of the most anticipated series of 2022, hence the viewing of the trailer has caused a great sensation throughout the world.
This 60-second preview is the first appetizer of the series, which is being co-directed by the Spanish John Anthony Bayonne, which talks about the fantastic universe created by JRR Tolkien, which means that it will not be the only trailer we see before the premiere of the series, but we still have some more interesting facts to know before the summer even begins. We already saw the first images a few days ago, now we will see the first trailer.
Trailer for ‘The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power’
The preview shows us very impressive scenarios that are very similar to the setting given in the ‘The Lord of the Rings’ film trilogy. This is something to highlight and it is that they wanted to follow the same scenery so as not to clash too much, something that the public, especially the most faithful followers, will appreciate.
The platform, in addition to the trailer, has also revealed the name of the seven main characters, which are not the only ones. These are: Prince Durin IV (Owain Arthur), Princess Disa (Sophia Nomvete), Elrond (Robert Aramayo), Galadriel (Morfydd Clark), Arondir (Ismael Cruz Córdoba), Bronwyn (Nazanin Boniadi), and Halbrand (Charlie Vickers).
As for the plot, the story takes place thousands of years before ‘The Lord of the Rings’ and even ‘The Hobbit’, so we will know the story from ancient times.
“Until now, audiences have only seen the story of the One Ring on screen, but Before there was one, there were many… and we are excited to share this exceptional story of all of them, “added the creators of the series, JD Payne and Patrick McKay, in a statement sent by the platform.
One of the most expensive series in history
‘The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power’ is one of the most expensive series in history and it is that a total of $465 million in its production. It is precisely for this reason that it is also one of the great bets on television in the coming years. The filming of the first season of this series concluded last summer in New Zealand, so it will take almost a full year before its premiere.
The idea of the company is to create a fanaticism similar to that of ‘Game of Thrones’, although with a much higher investment since the latter had an investment of 100 million dollars and not 465 million, so the difference in spending is already makes a big difference.
Of course, taking into account that the trilogy of films raised 2,912 million dollars, it is not surprising that the investment has been so high since the idea will be to reach a similar and even higher collection.
