Prime Video has unveiled a new trailer for The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, a new live-action adaptation inspired by the works of J.R.R. Tolkien. Set in the Second Age of Middle-Earth, the series will serve as a prequel to the beloved film trilogy by Peter Jackson.

By taking us to the Second Age, the new Lord of the Rings series intends to explore the past of fan-favorite characters. That’s why young versions of Elrond (Robert Aramayo) and Galadriel (Morfydd Clark) are part of The Rings of Power‘s main cast. The series will also explore Sauron’s rise to power, the creation of the titular rings of power, and the journey Isildur (Maxim Baldry) took to become a great human leader in the battle against the forces of evil.

The trailer reveals the upcoming series will go back in time to the origins of Middle-Earth when there was no sun in the sky and the land was covered by the light of the Trees of Valinor. The trailer also highlights some of the main races populating The Lord of the Rings‘ universe. We have Elves protecting the forests, Dwarves living in their mines below the ground, and Men expanding their fields of grain over the land. However, while the lands seem to be at peace, there are those who still remember the trail of death and destruction left by Morgoth, the first Dark Lord, who once tried to rule the world. Finally, the trailer confirms that The Rings of Power will follow heroes from every race banding together to fight against a new evil, born from the shadows of the last great war.

Here’s the official synopsis for The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power:

Prime Video’s The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power brings to screens for the very first time the heroic legends of the fabled Second Age of Middle-earth’s history. This epic drama is set thousands of years before the events of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings books, and will take viewers back to an era in which great powers were forged, kingdoms rose to glory and fell to ruin, unlikely heroes were tested, hope hung by the finest of threads, and one of the greatest villains that ever flowed from Tolkien’s pen threatened to cover all the world in darkness. 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. From the darkest depths of the Misty Mountains, to the majestic forests of the elf capital of Lindon, to the breathtaking island kingdom of Númenor, to the farthest reaches of the map, these kingdoms and characters will carve out legacies that live on long after they are gone.
