The series is set in the Second Age of Middle-earththousands of years before the events of the films and novels of The Lord of the rings. This project brings Tolkien’s legendary story to the screen for the first time. Beginning in a time of relative peace, the series follows a cast of characters, both familiar and new, as they face the dreaded resurgence of evil in Middle-earth.
The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power is led by the showrunners and executive producers JD Payne and Patrick McKay. They are joined by executive producers Lindsey Weber, Callum Greene, JA Bayona, Belén Atienza, Justin Doble, Jason Cahill, Gennifer Hutchison, Bruce Richmond and Sharon Tal Yguado, and the producers Rum Ames Y Christopher Newman. Wayne Che Yip is co-executive producer and directs with J. A. Bayonne Y Charlotte Brandström.
Spanish director JA Bayona recently revealed to the magazine sfx what was the rule under which the producers and he were based to transfer this world from the books to the small screen and thereby expand the established canon of Middle-earth.
“When you read the books of Tolkien, you can realize how much he appreciates beauty, so the show is full of beauty. Tolkien is inherently optimistic, warm and emotional. This is a man who went through some of the darkest things in human history (in World War I) and didn’t come out of it and wrote a very strong and hopeless story,” he said.
