Story of The Rings of Power
In the film “The Lord of the Rings”, by J. R. R. Tolkien, there are three strong and powerful objects: The Ring of Power (later called “the Ring”), Narya, and a great Elf-maiden named Galadriel who possessed only one ring and four lesser rings which were given to her by the Elven-smiths in Middle-earth before they passed away. The last ring, the One Ring, was lost in the Second Age and then found by the hobbit Bilbo Baggins, who hid it in a place where it could not be found: under Mount Doom when Sauron returned.
Doing a rewatch of LOTR to get ready for #RingsOfPower and the fact that Andy Serkis didn’t get an Oscar for his portrayal of Gollum/Sméagol is honestly just technology being ahead of its time. If he doesn’t get a lifetime achievement award later in life it’s a travesty pic.twitter.com/qpReLKuRkI

The Ring gives power to those who possess it and it corrupts those that possessed it before. It also prevents anybody from possessing another ring as long as it is owned. In The Lord of the Rings, an evil Ringwraith named Smeagol captured a little girl with no name other than “Sylvan” and forced her to sleep for 80 years. After that time, she was released from his clutch by Frodo Baggins (later called “Bilbo”).
The show will have its viewers right in the middle of the drama unfolding
Gone are the days when you had to wait for the book or take a trip to a nearby bookstore or library just to find out what happens next. The long-awaited prequel series will be an interactive experience – think Westworld season 2 meets Game of Thrones – that puts its viewers right in the middle of events as they unfold. The Rings of Power series will be separated into two chapters – one for the Fellowship of the Ring, and the other for the events that follow. Those who are new to Middle-Earth or first-time viewers can expect to be transported into a world never experienced before. The visual effects team is currently working on a new, stunning way to recreate scenes from J.R.R. Tolkien’s classic fantasy book trilogy.
