The return to Middle-earth is almost here. Fans cannot wait to see The Rings of Power when its first two episodes hit Prime Video on September 1 (or September 2, if you are outside the US and Brazil). The Second Age will come to life in a brilliant new way, giving us awesome new characters like the elf Arondir and letting us see others like Galadriel in a different time. The first reactions to The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power are in, and the series is getting praise for its powerful cast and epic visuals expected of this universe.
Of course, there’s love for the women characters, especially Galadriel, played by Morfydd Clark. Women are truly set to lead the way in The Rings of Power, and we love to see it!
But it is truly the visuals and cinematography that have everyone completely stunned. The Lord of the Rings is well-known for its beautiful locations, and it seems The Rings of Power takes that to a new level. It is still up in the air where the show can go because, well, no one really knows much after two episodes of anything. However, what fans see plays a part in their overall investment. And the look of The Rings of Power definitely made an impact, judging by these first reactions.
And, who can forget yet another important part of The Rings of Power—the score! The soundtrack is already out for the fans to enjoy with some new epic tunes. Sounds like we should update our Tolkien playlist pretty soon!
Finally, there are some romance rumblings for The Rings of Power. We know that Bronwyn and Arondir will be an item, but what else can we expect?! Elrond and Durin, perhaps?
So, it seems that The Rings of Power sets up a story that’s worth looking forward to, whether it is for the visuals and fantasy adventures or for a little romance. We cannot wait to dive back into Middle-earth and see where the Second Age takes us.
