Amazon Teases First Image for The Lord of the Rings Series

Amazon is working on its own The Lord of the Rings series, which acts as a precursor to The Hobbit and The Lord of The Rings Trilogy by J. R. R. Tolkien. The live-action series will premiere on Friday, September 2, 2022 on Prime Video. Today, the first season has wrapped filming in New Zealand, and to celebrate the occasion, a new image has been released.

Amazon is taking the world of Middle-earth to the Second Age, thousands of years before the events of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings Trilogy books. (These two books were set in the Third Age.) The new image shows the gorgeous world, and it is looking very epic.
