The Lord of the Rings, The Rings of Power, Prime Video,

Prime Video has revealed a new list of character names for its Lord of the Rings series The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power. The list includes Charles Edwards as Celebrimbor, Sir Lenny Henry as Sadoc Burrows, Megan Richards as Poppy Proudfellow, Dylan Smith as Largo Brandyfoot, and Sara Zwangobani as Marigold Brandyfoot. No other details about the characters have been revealed at this time. The series will feature 22 stars and multiple storylines that range from deep within the dwarven mines of the Misty Mountains to the high politics of the elven kingdom of Lindon. These story threads eventually center around the incident that made the trilogy a fantasy classic.

While speaking with Empire, The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power showrunners JD Payne and Patrick McKay revealed that they have everything planned out for the Prime Video series, right down to the very last shot.

“We even know what our final shot of the last episode is going to be,” JD Payne teased. “The rights that Amazon bought were for a 50-hour show. They knew from the beginning that was the size of the canvas – this was a big story with a clear beginning, middle, and end. There are things in the first season that don’t pay off until Season 5.” All five seasons of The Rings of Power are set thousands of years before The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. The series will chronicle the forging of the Rings of Power, the rise of Sauron, the fall of Númenor, and the last alliance between Elves and Men. The Rings of Power will draw from J.R.R. Tolkien’s work, but Payne explains it was like “Tolkien put some stars in the sky and let us make out the constellations.” Although the series will introduce new characters and ideas, Patrick McKay knew it all had to fit into what Tolkien created.

“The pressure would drive us insane if we didn’t feel like there was a story here that didn’t come from us. It comes from a bigger place. It came from Tolkien, and we’re just the stewards of it. We trust those ideas so deeply because they’re not ours. We’re custodians, at best.”

Cynthia Addai-Robinson, Robert Aramayo, Owain Arthur, Maxim Baldry, Nazanin Boniadi, Morfydd Clark, Ismael Cruz Córdova, Charles Edwards, Trystan Gravelle, Sir Lenny Henry, Ema Horvath, Markella Kavenagh, Joseph Mawle, Tyroe Muhafidin, Sophia Nomvete, Lloyd Owen, Megan Richards, Dylan Smith, Charlie Vickers, Leon Wadham, Benjamin Walker, Daniel Weyman, and Sara Zwangobani headline the cast.
