Howe stated to Empire magazine how The Rings of Power’s Second Age setting allowed Amazon Studios, in partnership with the Tolkien estate, to depict Middle-earth at its pinnacle of power.

“This isn’t the Middle-earth you remember,” Howe said. “This is a world that’s very vibrant. The elves are not hidden away in Mirkwood or lingering in Rivendell. They’re busy constructing kingdoms. The dwarven kingdom of Moria is not an abandoned mine and the Grey Havens is not yet an abandoned city. I loved having the opportunity to explore that unseen history.”

It’s a far cry from the damaged, rotting towns and devastation of natural habitats depicted in Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings and Hobbit film trilogies. However, as Howe explains, the ability to show viewers a living Middle-earth allowed the program’s numerous creative teams — production design, animation crew, and costume makers, to name a few – to give a beautiful perspective of a world that fans haven’t seen on the big or small screens before.

“We’re finally sailing on the oceans of Middle-earth. They [the elves] are daunting and enterprising and are almost colonising the world. They were a lot of fun to imagine. It’s something neither Lord Of The Rings nor Hobbit movies went anywhere near.”

Set thousands of years before J.R.R Tolkien’s legendary Lord of the Rings book series, The Rings of Power will tell the story of how Sauron rose from the shadows to forge the Rings of Power and almost hold total dominion over Middle-earth. The Prime Video fantasy show is one of the most eagerly anticipated TV series of the year, and its teaser trailer certainly showed that Amazon Studios is going all-out to make it as good as it can be.
