The first trailer for The Lord Of The Rings: Rings Of Power has been premiered Sunday night (February 13) during the Super Bowl.
The US sporting event often features trailers and teasers for big upcoming movies and TV shows unveiled for the first time during its commercial breaks.
This year, fans of JRR Tolkien’s hobbits were given a first look at the forthcoming series, which will be available on Amazon Prime Video in September. The show is reportedly the most expensive TV show of all time, with its first five seasons costing at least $1billion (£739m).
The trailer showed various clips from throughout Middle Earth, as title screens teased: “Before the Fellowship, before the ring… A new legend begins this fall.” While impressive, the visuals did not reveal more details on what the show’s storylines might include, although it was previously reported that the series would be based on the book The Silmarillion.

A synopsis for the show reads: “Set in the Second Age of Middle-earth, thousands of years before the events of The Hobbit and The Lord Of The Rings, the series follows an ensemble cast of characters as they confront the re-emergence of evil in Middle-earth.”
The Lord Of The Rings: The Rings Of Power will premiere on September 2, 2022.
