Amazon Prime Video officially revealed the title of its upcoming Lord of the Rings television series back on Wednesday. The title of the series is The Rings of Power. The video that was released announcing the title features a narrator’s voice reciting the first few lines of the Ring Verse, a poem about the One Ring describing its nature and its relation to the other Rings of Power and their master, Sauron: “Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky, Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone, Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die, One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne, In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.”

Fans have long known that Amazon Prime Video’s Middle-earth set series would happen long before the events of J.R.R. Tolkien’s novels, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy and The Hobbit. Instead, the series will be focusing on how the Rings were created and distributed throughout Middle-earth, incorporating other stories of the Second Age.
"This is a title that we imagine could live on the spine of a book next to J.R.R. Tolkien's other classics. The Rings of Power unites all the major stories of Middle-earth's Second Age: the forging of the rings, the rise of the Dark Lord Sauron, the epic tale of Númenor, and the Last Alliance of Elves and Men," said by executive producers and showrunners Patrick Mckay and J.D. Payne in a press release. "Until now, audiences have only seen on-screen the story of the One Ring – but before there was one, there were many... and we're excited to share the epic story of them all."
The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power cast includes Ismael Cruz Córdova, Charles Edwards, Trystan Gravelle, Sir Lenny Henry, Ema Horvath, Cynthia Addai-Robinson, Robert Aramayo, Owain Arthur, Maxim Baldry, Nazanin Boniadi, Morfydd Clark, Markella Kavenagh, Joseph Mawle, Tyroe Muhafidin, Charlie Vickers, Leon Wadham, Benjamin Walker, Daniel Weyman, Sophia Nomvete, Lloyd Owen, Megan Richards, Dylan Smith, and Sara Zwangobani.
The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power is set to be released on Amazon Prime Video on September 2, 2022.
