The Lord of the Rings: who will be the main characters of the Amazon series? – News…

Who will be the main characters in the series “The Rings of Power”, adapted from the “Lord of the Rings” universe, expected on Amazon Prime Video from September 2?

Expected for September 2 on Amazon Prime Video, the Rings of Power series is the prequel to Lord of the Rings; Set several millennia before the story of the trilogy signed Peter Jackson, it traces the creation of the magic rings forged by the Elf Celebrimbor, played by British actor Charles Edwards (The Crown).

While the One Ring played a central role in The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit, it is here no less than twenty different rings that will appear in the series. Who will be the owners? Here’s what Tolkien’s writings have taught us about the future protagonists of the Amazon series!

Due to their immortality, several Elves who appeared in Peter Jackson’s trilogies will return to the series. This is particularly the case of Queen Galadriel, holder of the Nenya ring, protector of the forces of evil; Succeeding Cate Blanchett, the Swedish actress Morfydd Clark lends her features to the illustrious character.

The Vilya ring, the most powerful of the three offered to the Elves, was given to Gil-galad; the latter only appeared in the extended version of The Fellowship of the Ring prologue. American actor Benjamin Walker (Jessica Jones) was chosen to play the latter. Recall that Vilya is detained in the trilogy The Lord of the Rings by the half-elf Elrond embodied, meanwhile, by Robert Aramayo (young Ned Stark in Game of Thrones).

Finally, the third and last ring is Narya, entrusted to Círdan. Appeared as a single extra in the trilogy The Lord of the Ringsthe identity of its interpreter in the series Rings of Power has not yet been revealed.

The seven Rings offered to the dwarven kings had various fates; while some disappeared during wars between clans or territory, others were recovered by the hordes of Mordor to serve as bargaining chips with other dwarf rulers.

Not all of them will necessarily play leading roles in the series, but it has already been confirmed that Prince Durin IV, heir to the throne of the underground city of Khazad-dûm (also called Moria) and presumed holder of one of the seven Rings, will be one of the main protagonists of the program. British theater actor Owain Arthur was chosen to lend him his features.

Unknown to the general public, Sophia Nomvete will lend her features to Princess Disa, a character invented for the needs of the series, and who therefore does not appear in any of JRR Tolkien’s works.

“Nine for Mortal Men Doomed”

By offering them nine Rings of Power, Sauron was thus able to test the resistance of men in the face of the corruption of evil forces. All became Nazgul, these horsemen of the shadows in the service of the sorcerer, who tracked down Frodo in the trilogy The Lord of the Rings. The identity of the nine holders not being specified, it would nevertheless seem highly probable that the origin of the Nazgul will be revealed in the Amazon series.

However, men will play an important role in Rings of Power, and in particular Isildur (Maxim Baldry), son of the king of Elendil and ancestor of Aragorn, entered into legend for having defeated Sauron during the Last Alliance with the Elves with the broken sword Narsil. He will be the last holder of the One Ring, before it is recovered centuries later by Smeagol.

“One for the Dark Lord on His Dark Throne”

The One Ring was secretly forged by Sauron to bring under his control the wielders of the other nineteen Rings of Power. The latter only appeared in the trilogy The Lord of the Rings than in flashback scenes, or in the form of a fiery eye atop the Barad-dûr tower in the territory of Mordor.

It is not yet known in what form Sauron will appear in the Rings of Power series, but it has been confirmed that he will occupy a role of greater importance than in the cinematic trilogy.
