The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power‘s teaser trailer was revealed by Amazon during its upfront presentation in New York City. The new season is set to premiere on Prime Video this August 29. The new teaser gives a look at the ascension of one of fantasy’s most iconic antagonists, Sauron. Watch the trailer below:

Portrayed by Charlie Vickers, Sauron cunningly infiltrates the elven ranks, assuming the guise of one of their own. His manipulation directly influences the master smith Celebrimbor, played by Charles Edwards, in the creation of the powerful rings which bear the series’ name.

The trailer from Prime Video teases the presence of menacing orcs, invasive creeping vines, and a disturbing, worm-infested sludge that threatens the pristine lands of Middle-earth. These unsettling elements set the stage for the epic battles that are to unfold as familiar characters brace for the impending chaos. Notable figures such as Galadriel, portrayed by Morfydd Clark, and Elrond, played by Robert Aramayo, prepare for conflict, alongside warriors Arondir and Isildur, brought to life by Ismael Cruz Córdova and Maxim Baldry, respectively.

Franchise Lord of the Rings

There are scenes with the enigmatic character known only as the Stranger, portrayed by Daniel Weyman. Wielding a wooden staff, he continues to be a figure of mystery, especially following the revelation in the first season’s finale that links him to the legendary wizards of Middle-earth. While not confirmed as the iconic Gandalf, the series plays coyly with the theory.

The iconic elements from the broader Lord of the Rings lore are also present. These include the imposing Mount Doom, one of the majestic Great Eagles, and creatures that hint at the terrifying Watcher in the Water, as well as the fortress of Barad-dûr, the heart of Sauron’s dark domain.

Rings of Power Season 2 Director Hints at Darker, Grittier Episodes

Director Charlotte Brändström, who previously directed two episodes in the first season, returns with an even more prominent role, helming four upcoming episodes. Her unique vision will bring an edgier and darker tone to the new season, a shift from the initial episodes. In a recent discussion with MovieZine, Brändström shared insights into the evolving nature of the series, highlighting a deliberate push towards a more character-driven and authentic storytelling approach.

“What I know and what I can say for a fact is that it’s going to be darker, and it’s going to be edgier and more character-driven. I still think that we have some very interesting episodes coming up. I watched all of them over Christmas, just the cuts. I think it’s going to be a very good season.”

The director reviewed the initial cuts of the upcoming episodes, expressing confidence in the season’s quality and the narrative surprises it holds.

“We tried to make it more gritty, a little bit more dirty I guess. And not in the image, but to make it as authentic as possible. We have some very surprising twists and turns in it as well.”

Despite mixed reviews, the first season succeeded in securing a dedicated fanbase, captivated by this new interpretation of Tolkien’s lore. The series achieved one of the highest viewerships for a show on Prime Video, proving its ability to appeal to audiences and set the stage for further exploration of J.R.R. Tolkien’s fantasy world.
