Middle-earth is heading back to Comic-Con International.
Deadline has revealed that Prime Video is looking to bring The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power to Comic-Con. The forthcoming series, which will bring fans back to the world of J.R.R. Tolkien’s beloved fantasy world, will hit Hall H this July along with showrunners J.D. Payne & Patrick McKay.
The streamer looks to be going all out ahead of The Rings of Power’s debut this September. While it is unclear what Prime Video will debut during the Hall H presentation, one can assume footage will be debuted ahead of an appearance by some of the (massive) cast. The first season of The Rings of Power will cost Prime Video an astounding $462 million alone, that’s not accounting for the $250 million the streaming service paid back in 2017 for the television rights.
The series stars Cynthia Addai-Robinson (The Accountant), Robert Aramayo (The Empty Man), Owain Arthur, Maxim Baldry (Mr. Bean’s Holiday), Nazanin Boniadi (Homeland), Morfydd Clark, Ismael Cruz Córdova (In the Blood), Charles Edwards (The Kingdom of Bones), and Trystan Gravelle(Anonymous). Also starring in the series is Sir Lenny Henry, Ema Horvath, Markella Kavenagh, Joseph Mawle, Tyroe Muhafidin, Sophia Nomvete, Lloyd Owen, Megan Richards, Dylan Smith, Charlie Vickers, Leon Wadham, Benjamin Walker, Daniel Weyman, and Sara Zwangobani.
The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power will debut on Prime Video on Sept. 2nd, 2022. The series is set in the Second Age of Middle-earth and takes place thousands of years before the events of the books and the movies. Like with most Prime Video titles, new episodes will be available weekly.
