The Prime Video Lord of the rings Show will cover the second age of Middle-earth, thousands of years before the events of the Peter Jackson films.

The Rings of Power has faced complaints about its diverse cast and LGBTQ+ representation, often masked as remarks that the show isn’t faithful to Tolkien’s books. While no production should respond or pander to such criticism, the latest is The Rings of Power The trailer shows that the Amazon series has absolutely accomplished its mission when it comes to recapturing the magic of Middle-earth that Peter Jackson adapted.
