Fiordland stunning backdrop in Rings trailer

A second teaser trailer for The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power TV series has been released.

The series partly filmed in Fiordland, New Zealand, is an epic and ambitious telling of J.R.R. Tolkien’s fabled Second Age of Middle-earth, and launches globally on Prime Video in September. 

The new two-minute, 30-second teaser trailer delves even deeper into this series adaptation, giving fans the first look at some of Tolkien's legendary characters from the island kingdom of Númenor.

The characters are Isildur (Maxim Baldry), Elendil (Lloyd Owen), Pharazôn (Trystan Gravelle), and Queen Regent Míriel (Cynthia Addai-Robinson). Additional Númenóreans also recently announced are Kemen (Leon Wadham) and Eärien (Ema Horvath).

The trailer also highlights some of the realms viewers will visit during the eight-part series, including the Elven realms of Lindon and Eregion, the Dwarven realm Khazad-dûm, the Southlands, the Northernmost Wastes, the Sundering Seas, and the island kingdom of Númenór. 

The multi-season drama launches on Prime Video in more than 240 countries and territories worldwide on September 2, with new episodes available weekly.
