Now is a good time to subscribe to Amazon’s Prime Video because The Rings of Power is set to drop on the streaming platform this September 2, 2022.
The highly anticipated Lord of the Rings prequel is quite possibly the most expensive show ever produced with Amazon reportedly spending over USD1 billion for five seasons.
The show is based on J.R.R. Tolkien’s beloved fantasy novel series, set thousands of years before The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings in the Second Age of Middle-earth’s history, and tells the story of the forging of the Rings of Power, the rise of Sauron, the fall of the island kingdom of Númenor, and the last alliance between Elves and Men.
Early reviews have started trickling in on Twitter from those given the chance at an early viewing of a couple of episodes. The verdict is universally positive, further adding to the excitement surrounding the show.
Even esteemed The Sandman author Neil Gaiman shared his thoughts on Rings of Power, saying that he’ll “watch the whole series when it drops, with enthusiasm.”
Really, really fun. I remember buying the Silmarillion as a schoolboy when it was published and it very much not being the prequel I was hoping for. This is the sort of thing I wanted to experience back then. I'll watch the whole series when it drops, with enthusiasm. https://t.co/eEcGJvCOjk— Neil Gaiman (@neilhimself) August 24, 2022
