As the premiere of The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power draws nearer, Prime Video has released a striking new promo poster for the highly-anticipated series featuring one of the only characters fans will be familiar with from the beloved movie trilogy, Galadriel.
Played by Cate Blanchett in Peter Jackson's films, Welsh actress Morfydd Clark will take on the role of this younger incarnation of the Elven warrior, who is set to play a pivotal part in this prequel tale as she attempts to prevent the return of Sauron and the spread of darkness across Middle Earth.
Check out the new key art below, and stay tuned for a final trailer, which should be coming our way over the next week or so.
Amazon Studios’ forthcoming series 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, 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 the greatest villain 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 re-emergence 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 furthest reaches of the map, these kingdoms and characters will carve out legacies that live on long after they are gone.
The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power is set to premiere on Friday, September 2.
