‘The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power’ Trailer: 8 Things You Might Have Missed

Prime Video unveiled a brand new teaser trailer for The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power 

New teaser shows us more of the characters interacting, foreshadows the dangerous times ahead, and even gives us a look at the most mythical place in Tolkien’s lore. 

Amazon’s The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power takes place thousands of years before The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings trilogy, in a time known as the Second Age. 

When The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power opens, the elves (for the most part) believe they have defeated evil in the form of Morgoth and his right hand man Sauron.  

Because the show takes place in the Second Age, you won’t see familiar characters like Gandalf and Aragorn 

The new Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power opens with could be called the “money shot” for Tolkien geeks. Galadriel, in voice over, tells us “there was a time when the world was so young, there had not yet been a sunrise, but even then, there was light.” 

The Two Trees of Valinor, Telperion and Laurelin are sacred to the world and mythology of Tolkien.  

The new trailer gives us just a tease of how different this place was before the cave troll in this shot, where Elrond is lead down into the mines. 

The new Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power trailer gives us a taste of Galadriel’s concern. She seems to be the lone voice of reason. So much so, we have her arguing with Elrond over this. 

Did you see hobbits in the new Lord of the Rings teaser? Think again!

Hobbits didn’t yet exist in the Second Age. Instead the show will follow a group of their ancestors known as harfoots.
