Amazon Prime have released a short video announcing the title of their ‘The Lord Of The Rings’ series. The series, which is the most expensive of all time, will carry the subtitle of ‘The Rings Of Power’.
The show will be set a thousand years before the films during Middle Earth’s Second Age. The showrunners, J.D. Payne & Patrick McKay, believe the title is a fitting one for the show and would sit well alongside Tolkien’s
The Rings of Power unites all the major stories of Middle-earth’s Second Age: the forging of the rings, the rise of the Dark Lord Sauron, the epic tale of Númenor, and the Last Alliance of Elves and Men.
