Amazon's Rings of Power series debuts on 2nd September and the studio has released one final trailer for the show.

The Rings of Power  final trailer shows the epic scope of the show.

The social media embargo for critics has also been lifted and the early buzz sounds extremely favourable – the caveat there is that those social posts tend to be very gushy and positive as critics want to keep in wiith the studios that gave them the preview. However this is the most expensive TV show ever made and every trailer so far has looked utterly stunning, the latest of which hints at plot and story details just a little bit.

Comparisons to that other show…

It’s inevitable that comparisons will be made with the House of the Dragon series that as just started on HBO Max. It’s unfair to do so as the source material of both draws inspiration from radically different cultural and historical sources. The world of GRR Martins novels are rooted in the brutal feudal patriarchies of the European Middle Ages, they concern themselves with the ruling classes and their lust for power and willingness to stop at nothing to get it. The TV shows revel in the cynical cruelty of the main characters, focusing on the bleak violence and loveless sex that fuels their lives. JRR Tolkiens source material however was the myths and legends of Northern Europe, his vision was to create a complete mythology – which he actually achieved. So there is hope in his writing, light and dark, good and evil, plus Frodo ultimately proves that the humblest of people can save the world.
