Ring, Game, Book: 10 Things Lord of the Rings Fans Should Have

Ring, Game, Book: 10 Things Lord of the Rings Fans Should Have

This Thursday, the first, one of the greatest fairy tales of all time, gains another chapter with the premiere of “The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power,” on Amazon Prime Video. The series promises to perfectly recreate and expand Middle-earth that the general public knew in the award-winning trilogy directed by Peter Jackson two decades ago.

Old-fashioned fans will find devoted characters already in the movies, but no one needs to rush to see all three, as the new series will take place thousands of years before Frodo’s journey to destroy the One Ring. While “The Hobbit” and “The Lord of the Rings”, the first titles published by JRR Tolkien about Middle-earth, take place at the end of the Third Age, the events depicted in “The Rings of Power” take place during the Safe Age.

Although it has already been confirmed that the series will spoil the timeline set by the British writer for being, as it brings together some important events regarding the books for the sake of narration, the distance between the stories can be as much as 5,000 years.

The number may frighten those unfamiliar with Tolkien’s work, but it’s this level of world-building and context, with plenty of detail and tremendous depth in creating races, kingdoms, wars, and even languages, that’s what makes this fantasy franchise something of a darling for over eighty years.

If “The Lord of the Rings” depicts the so-called War of the Ring, when Gandalf unites men, elves, and dwarves to finally defeat the great evil Sauron, works like “The Silmarillion” in detail about the creation of the world and the first tooth.

And between these two eras, Rings of Power will tell its story, presenting key events and locations for the entire franchise, such as the island of Númenor, the greatest kingdom of men, and the composition of the episodes mentioned by Celebrimbor (Charles Edwards).
