Now that a teaser trailer and title have been revealed for The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, Amazon has begun to advertise for the series in earnest with a lot of posters.
With the premiere of The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power just under seven months away, Amazon seems primed to begin their advertising for the series in earnest as this morning they have dropped no fewer than 23 posters teasing various characters that we’ll see throughout the story.
You can see the beautiful posters in the gallery below:
Some interesting details to note about these posters: no faces are visible, and the emphasis is on the hands (and weapons) of many of these currently unknown characters. Given that the series is focused on the Rings of Power, that makes sense, and you’ll note that many of the character’s hands are already wearing rings.
While we can’t see any faces, the posters don’t lack for intricate details. It’s obvious from the costuming that we’re going to be seeing characters from a wide range of occupations. The two posters that intrigue me the most at the moment are the one where it’s obviously a scepter being shown, which suggests this is High King Gil-Galad or a possible King of Numenor. The other shows a figure in black, ominous armor. While there’s every chance this could be Sauron, keep in mind that this could also be a reference to Morgoth, the original Dark Lord of Middle-earth.
What do you think of these incredible posters for The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power? The series arrives on September 2nd, 2022.
