Amazon's Lord of the Rings series, subtitled The Rings of Power, continues to unfold in an impressive trailer.
At the end of the summer, end of August/beginning of September, two highly anticipated series will land on streaming platforms: House of the Dragon and The Rings of Power. On the one hand HBO releases the heavy artillery with the spin-off of its phenomenon series Game of Thrones, and on the other Amazon resuscitates the Tolkienian monument of Lord of the Rings > for a highly anticipated series.
A throwback that recently continued to unfold with a mysterious, near-silent teaser. The universe of this brand new series is slowly taking shape before our curious and impatient eyes, waiting to know and see a little more. But finally, new images have just been revealed by Amazon in a spectacular trailer:
In this first large and long trailer, we discover the different environments that the series intends to make us explore. Calm meadows, majestic cities, snow-capped mountains, fortified mines and mysterious forests… the visual diversity of the series really seems to take shape through this trailer. A richness that is here packed with class by some pretty stunning special effects that will undoubtedly reassure the most skeptical of previous teasers.
The Rings of Power< /strong>has a mouthful and it's fun. The impression of grandeur is reinforced by a work of the frame which constantly emphasizes the depth of field, and by a photograph which seems both stylized and organic. It is thus in a few beautiful shots in slow motion and visions of spectacular sets that this trailer is transformed into pure plastic happiness.

They will be accompanied on screen by, among others, Nazanin Boniadi, Benjamin Walker, Peter Mullan, Cynthia Addai-Robinson and Ismael Cruz Cordova.
For what is on the team behind the camera, Wayne Yip will direct four of the series' eight episodes, while Juan Antonio Bayona and Charlotte Brändström will split the remaining four.
