A Look at the Latest Trailer for The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power

The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power Still
The first main teaser trailer for Amazon Prime's The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power has landed and we're already pretty blown away by just how stunning this series looks to be.
Opening at what appears to be Numenor, with Galadriel's (Morfydd Clark) atmospheric voiceover leading the way, this trailer kicks things off in what feels like a very impactful way. Packed full of powerful introductions to well-known locations including the Elven city of Tirion, including the Two Trees - the golden Laurelin and silver Telperion - which give light to Valinor, as well as Khazad-Dum which even seems to feature Dwarves in the process of operating some sort of mechanism that brings light in. 
Although this may seem like an odd addition to the scene, it is known that the Dwarves did have windows within the mountain as when The Fellowship makes camp here, in Khazad-dum, Froddo awakes to find beams of light dancing on the walls. A small book detail which really gives makes us just a little excited about the efforts to ensure authenticity in this series.
Alongside these delicious morsels of inspiration from the novels more generally, and the J.R.R. Tolkien's notes which inspired the series overall, it's great to see hints at other events which we already know have greatly impacted the story of The Lord of the Rings as we know it, such as hinting at what may possibly be the War of the Wrath (the 40-year war that ends the first age) and the petal-less White Tree of Gondor from the books, something we may actively see happening, ominously declaring the threat that something malevolent may be approaching. 
Now, we could write about the possible Easter eggs hidden within the trailer all day; like is the scene where the Elves are carefully positioned in a circle and withdrawing their swords from their sheaths actually a shot of the Sons of Feanor making the Oath to Feanor, who knows? What we do know is that regardless of whether you're new to The Lord of the Rings or an avid fan, you'll want to watch the series to get all of the details. 
What did you think of this new trailer?

The series will be released 2 September on Amazon Prime.
