JA Bayona, director of The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, is clear that this series is unlike anything audiences have seen before.
There is less left for us to see the series of The Lord of the rings of Amazon Prime Video and those responsible believe that they have surpassed everything that has been done before. For this they have been able to count on a brutal budget and it seems that the effort will have been worth it.
In a recent interview, J. A. Bayonne said: «The rings of power is not television. It’s a new way we’re creating here.”
While the showrunners, JD Payne and Patrick McKaythey are clear that they were looking for something different from the trilogy of The Lord of the rings of Peter Jackson which were released theatrically in 2001, 2002 and 2003.
“The siege of Helm’s Deep is so iconic and amazing that it was like: What different thing can we do that still feels like Middle-earth but is unique to this story? The show has a lot of action, more than any other TV show or broadcast we’ve ever seen. Each episode has stages, creatures, battles, and white-knuckle fights to the death. But instead of having 10,000 Orcs fighting 10,000 men, what is it like to have an Orc in your face, in your kitchen? What’s it like trying to kill an Orc when you’ve never killed an Orc before?”
The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power It will be a 50-hour series where they will tell us the stories he devised J. R. R. Tolkien about the Second Age of Middle-earth. Although they have already warned that they will compress the events to give more continuity, especially to the human characters.
The first season of The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power will premiere in Amazon Prime Video on September 2, 2022.
