The time has finally come to meet the orcs from ‘The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power’. Amazon Prime Video has released a new batch of images from this long-awaited series via IGN and these mythical creatures look even more sinister than in Peter Jackson’s acclaimed trilogy.
Keep in mind that the orcs were on the brink of extinction at the end of the First Age and that ‘The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power’ takes place in the Second Age, so in the Amazon series they will be somewhat scattered throughout Middle-earth. In fact, they are now creatures more concerned with survival than what would come later. Hence the lack of scars on many of them, because until now they had not focused on combat.

It is striking from these images that the Amazon series has chosen to prioritize the use of prosthetics and practical effects for the design of the orcs instead of entrusting everything to digital retouching. In fact, for the occasion they have recovered jamie wilsonwho worked on both of Jackson’s Middle-earth trilogies at the time.
In ‘The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power’ we will see the orcs return to the light after spending some time hiding in the most hidden of darkness, perhaps hence how especially terrifying they are. In addition, we will also see orcas and the executive producer Lindsey Weber He anticipates that one of them will star in a fight against an elf that he hopes will become one of the fan favorite scenes.
Amazon to premiere ‘The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power’ on Prime Video next september 2, just a few days after the landing of ‘The House of the Dragon’ on HBO Max. An inevitable rivalry over which George R.R. Martin has already been pronounced.
