Just this month, executive producer/director JA Bayona talked about the single headline created by the creation of: The rings of power.

“If you read [JRR] Tolkien’s books, you can see how much he loves beauty, so the show is full of beauty.

“Tolkien is naturally optimistic, warm and emotional,” he continued. “This is a man who went through some of the darkest things in human history” [the First World War] and he didn’t come out of that and wrote a desperate, horrible story.

“[Tolkien] wrote a story about hope, and a little boy who succeeds. We’ve always felt like the number one rule was that there had to be real optimism and love, even in the darkest, scariest moments of the show.”

When the first season finally hits our screens, don’t expect a simple rerun of Peter Jackson’s classic movie trilogy.

Co-showrunner Patrick McKay stated earlier this summer: “Anyone who approaches Lord of the Rings on the screen would be wrong not to think how great good [Jackson] have so much of it. But we’re admirers from afar, that’s all. The rings of power does not try to compete with him.

“You can challenge yourself to keep up with the Joneses, but one of the mantras on this was ‘go back to the source material’. What would Tolkien do?”

Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power will be broadcast Amazon Prime video from 2 Sept.
