Okay, we’ve been waiting years for this. Here’s the first trailer for The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power.
My first worry going into the trailer was my fear that it wouldn’t look, visually, like the world Peter Jackson had created. So you can imagine my relief when I noticed that it looked very similar. colorwise, to The Hobbit.
Does this look like it has the potential to be very good? Yes, it does. Will it be very good? I’m not quite sure.
I can definitively say that I like the casting for a young Galadriel. I like that she seems fierce, determined, and very much in charge but I also think she has the ability to be as graceful and powerful as Cate Blanchett. Young Elrond, hmm, not so much.
He does not look like Elrond at all to me and while I like his hair I don’t know if he’s going to win me over…but maybe he will. All in all, the trailer didn’t lay me out but it stifled some of my misgivings.
What do you think about the trailer? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a spectacular day.
