The Lord of the Rings series will bring the story that fans wanted, says producer

The co-creator of The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, JD Paynerecently described the upcoming Prime Video series as the story Tolkien fans have always wanted to see.

In an interview with empire, payne said that the scenario second era The series “contains some of the greatest stories of Tolkien’s mythos” that Middle-earth fans have long hoped to see more fully dramatized on screen.

“The universe created by Tolkien is this huge tapestry that spans 9,000 years… [O Senhor dos Anéis: Os Anéis do Poder é] the story fans have always wanted to see come to fruition, but so far has only been told in whispers.”

Key moments in the history of Middle Earth that fans expect to see in The Rings of Power include the rise of the dark lord Sauron the fall of the island kingdom of Númenor and the forging of the magical rings that give the show its title.

The Lord of the Rings series produced in Amazon Studios brings to the screen for the first time the heroic legends of the Second Age of Middle-earth. This epic drama is set thousands of years before the events of the main works of JRR Tolkien, The Hobbit, and The Lord of the Rings, and will take audiences back to a time when great powers were forged, and kingdoms rose to glory and fell to ruin. Unlikely heroes will be tested, and hope will be dangling from the thinnest of threads, and the greatest villain Tolkien ever created has threatened to cover the entire world in darkness.

Starting in a time of relative peace, the series follows an important group of characters, with new and familiar figures, as they confront the resurgence of evil in Middle-earth. From the depths of the Mountains of Mist, to the fabled forests of the elven capital Lindon, to the isle of Númenor, and the deepest corners of the map, these realms and characters will carve out their legacy, something that will be etched far into history.

The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power arrives in the Prime Video catalog on September 2.
