One Ring to Rule them all

Amazon’s Lord of the Rings reveals the title of the series with a teaser

Amazon Studios has revealed the title of their upcoming epic series, which will transport us to the Second Age of Middle-Earth on September 2nd, 2022.

After a long time of waiting, Amazon Studios has announced the title for their Lord of the Rings television series. The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power will premiere on September 2, 2022, on Amazon’s streaming platform, Amazon Prime Video.

The teaser was released on social media, where molten metal is poured into a wooden cast and cooled to finally create the series title. You can watch the teaser below:

The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power will transport us to the Second Age of Middle-earth, an important but not so much explored period, only being mentioned in appendices of the books written by J.R.R Tolkien. JD Payne and Patrick McKay, the showrunners in charge of the project, said in a statement: “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.”

“This is a title that we imagine could live on the spine of a book next to J.R.R. Tolkien's other classics,” they added.
