The Lord of the Rings: the official synopsis of the Amazon series is out

 While filming has just begun, the Lord of the Rings series by Prime Video has finally unveiled something other than its casting: its official synopsis.

On the other hand, for a release date it will be necessary to wait a little longer.



 Direction the Second Age of Middle-earth

Initially unveiled by the site TheOneRing, before being confirmed by Amazon directly, the synopsis of the expected series The Lord of the Rings is finally known. This, although still a bit vague, confirms the framework in which the show will take place, which should normally last at least five seasons.






It reads: “The upcoming series by Amazon Studios will, for the first time, bring to screen the heroic legends of the legendary Second Age in Middle-earth history. This epic tale takes place thousands of years before the events of JRR Tolkien's The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, and will immerse viewers in the heart of a time when great powers were forged, kingdoms rose to glory and sunk into ruin, where unlikely heroes were tested, where hope lay only on the finest of threads, and where the greatest antagonist imagined by Tolkien's pen threatened to spread darkness over the entire world. Opening on an era of relative peace, the series follows several characters, both familiar and new, as they face the dreaded return of the forces of evil to Middle-earth. From the darkest depths of the Misty Mountains, to the majestic forests of the elven capital of Lindon, to the breathtaking island kingdom of Númenor, to the far reaches of the mainland, these kingdoms and people will build a legacy that will endure long after they have arrived. they are no more ”.

Prime Video Sauron we hyper ...

No doubt the synopsis here refers to Sauron and the creation of the Rings of Power, which fans of The Lord of the Rings are familiar with. Among the other characters who should also make their return, we think of elves like Elrond or Galadriel (this one will be played by actress Morfydd Clark and not Cate Blanchett as in the films). We also hope to see a certain Gandalf, since his interpreter Ian McKellen has several times indicated to be motivated to return in the skin of the magician.

Geographically speaking finally, the show should therefore take place largely on the island of Númenor, a former kingdom from which a certain Aragorn came.
