A week after its teaser, Prime Video revealed a new trailer for its eight-episode series The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power.  This time the focus is on Galadriel, the character played by Cate Blanchett in Peter Jackson’s movies.  The series is a prequel, so the character is much younger, this time played by Swedish actress Morfydd Clark (Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, His Dark Materials).

With more peeks into this Middle-earth, it’s hard to find much in common with Peter Jackson’s Academy Award-winning movie series.  The environments and effects don’t seem to keep up with the depths of the cinematic version of this world, despite its hefty budget.

Check it out for yourself.  Here’s the new trailer for The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power:

The first season of The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power arrives September 2, 2022, only on Amazon’s Prime Video streaming platform.
