The expected Plot of “The Rings Of Power”:
The heroic legends of Middle-famed earth’s Second Age will be brought to life in a new Prime Video series. This epic drama will transport viewers to a time when great powers were born, kingdoms rose to glory and fell to ruin, improbable heroes were put to the test, hope clung by the thinnest of threads, and Tolkien’s greatest monster threatened to engulf the entire world in darkness.
The series begins in a period of relative calm and follows an ensemble cast of people, both familiar and new, as they face the long-feared return of evil to Middle-earth. These countries and characters will carve out legacies that will live on long after they are gone, from the darkest depths of the Misty Mountains to the gorgeous woodlands of the elf capital of Lindon, to the breathtaking island kingdom of Nmenor, to the farthest reaches of the world.
Who directed the Lord of the Rings?
J.D. Payne and McKay are the showrunners and executive producers of the series, and they are also the show’s writers. As well as Ron Ames and Christopher Newman, executive producers Lindsey Weber and Callum Greene, J.A. Bayona and Belén Atienza, and producers Jason Cahill and Gennifer Hutchison, Bruce Richmond and Sharon Tal Yguado will join them on the project. Wayne Che Yip, together with J.A.
