“The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power”, the most successful series of Amazon Prime Video, came to expand the story of the film trilogy directed by George RR Martin. The result has not left any fan indifferent.
Although the first chapters did not convince all fans, the sixth episode titled “Udûn” showed that it has everything to meet the highest expectations. However, the program does not stop being compared to “Game of thrones” and “House of the dragon”.
“There is so much darkness in the world. Leaning towards the light was another thing that really attracted everyone (…) It is hopeful, it has light and it can be seen by the whole family. Many people have grown up with this literature, and we wanted this series to reward new generations of Tolkien lovers,” Amazon Studios president Jennifer Salke told Variety.
As for the comparisons with “Game of thrones”, the executive said that if you are old enough to read the books, you are old enough to watch the series. “We knew from the beginning that this was not our ‘Game of Thrones,'” she finished.
What is “The Rings of Power” about?
Set in the Second Age of the Sun, the story shows us the era in which great powers were forged. It also reveals which heroes were put to the test and how hope almost died after the appearance of the terrible Sauron.
