The First Image for Amazon’s ‘The Lord of the Rings’ Is Here!

Okay, I’m going to try and act like a person in control and not get too hyped over an image that has no bearing on the story, acting, or overall series at all BUT…the first image for Amazon’s billion-dollar The Lord of the Rings series has been released and well, take a look.

Image

This image is literally stunning. A work of art that I can only link to something as beautiful and jaw-dropping as the world of Middle-Earth. Is this our first look at Númenor, the island where the Dunedain, Aragon’s ancestors, originated from? Or is this the Elven capital Lindon, where it’s been rumored that the series will debut for audiences for the first time?

Ah, I don’t know what we’re looking at or who that is in the picture (I’m going to guess it’s Galadriel considering that I think the series will be featuring a young Galadriel played by Morfydd Clark) but she looks like an elf from the beautiful dress she’s wearing. (!!!!!)

All in all, if this image is anything to go by, and considering all of the secrecy surrounding the series’ filming, we finally may have another addition to this world as brilliant and as incredible as The Lord of the Rings Trilogy twenty years ago. Now that’s something I thought I’d never say again.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a spectacular day.

  1. I think this is further back than Numenor. When I look at where the light in the background is coming from, you can pretty clearly see that it looks like it’s coming from the branches of a pair of trees.

    Which would mean that those can only really be the capital-T’s Two Trees themselves. Which would put this picture in Valinor from a time before Morgoth and Ungoliant destroyed the Trees, absconded with the Silmarils, and most of the elves left Valinor to pursue Morgoth behind Feanor.

    That would put this picture way, waaaaay back in Tolkien’s legendarium timeline, to the beginning of the First Age. I had read that they were taking place in the Second Age — which would be the time after Morgoth’s fall and in the time when Sauron deceived the elves into making the Rings in an effort to ensnare them, and the ensuing wars that resulted. But the more I look at that picture, the more I’m sure that that’s the Two Trees I’m looking at.

    So either this is a flashback scene to really, really old times, or the series is going to start off during the Quenta Silmarillion (ie the wars against Morgoth) instead of the Akallabeth (ie the fall of Numenor).

    Sorry, I’m really nerding out on my Tolkien here.
