The second teaser of the multi-season web series “The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power” was unveiled on Thursday. It delves even deeper into this series adaptation, showcasing the first look of some of J.R.R. Tolkien’s legendary characters from the island kingdom of Numenor.
The characters are Isildur (Maxim Baldry), Elendil (Lloyd Owen), Pharazon (Trystan Gravelle), and Queen Regent Miriel (Cynthia Addai-Robinson). Additional Numenoreans recently announced are Kemen (Leon Wadham) and Earien (Ema Horvath).
The teaser trailer also highlights some of the realms viewers will visit over the course of the eight-part series, including the Elven realms of Lindon and Eregion, the Dwarven realm Khazad-dum, the Southlands, the Northernmost Wastes, the Sundering Seas, and the island kingdom of Numenor.
“The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power” is an epic and ambitious telling of Tolkien’s fabled Second Age of Middle Earth. This epic drama is set thousands of years before the events of Tolkien’s “The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings” books. Beginning in a time of relative peace, the series follows an ensemble cast of characters, both familiar and new, as they confront the long-feared reemergence of evil to Middle Earth.
