The plot of the series
The new series from Amazon Studios The Lord of the Rings brings the legendary exploits of the mythical Second Age of Middle-earth to the small screen for the first time. The story of this epic drama takes place thousands of years before the events told in JRR Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. It will transport audiences to the era where great powers were born, kingdoms reached glory and fell into ruin, and unlikely heroes were tested. Hope hung on a very thin thread and the greatest villain born of Tolkien’s pen had threatened to make the whole world fall into darkness.
The series, which begins in an era of relative peace, follows a choral cast of characters, new but also familiar, who will have to deal with the return of evil to Middle-earth. From the dark depths of the Misty Mountains to the majestic forests of the Elven capital of Lindon. From the beautiful island of the kingdom of Númenor to the far reaches of the map. These kingdoms and characters will leave a legacy that will survive for a very long time after their demise.
The cast includes Robert Aramayo (Beldar), Markella Kavenagh (Tyra), Joseph Mawle (antagonist Oren), Morfydd Clark (Galadriel), Maxim Baldry , Owain Arthur , Nazanin Boniadi , Tom Budge , Ismael Cruz Córdova , Ema Horvath , Tyroe Muhafidin , Sophia Nomvete , Megan Richards , Dylan Smith , Charlie Vickers . Charles Edwards (The Crown), Will Fletcher (The Girl Who Fell), Amelie Child-Villiers(The Machine) and Beau Cassidy .
