As bleak as it is to imagine a world where TV show trailers are only available to watch on the streaming services on which they air, that’s exactly what Amazon Prime is doing with its latest preview for The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power. With less than two months to go until the house that Bezos built whisks us back to Middle-earth, Amazon just released a new trailer for the highly-anticipated series that’s exclusive to Prime Video subscribers.
The new sneak peek clocks in at just under a minute. Regardless, it features plenty of scenes that weren’t included in the Super Bowl trailer that made the rounds earlier this year. Mainly, the trailer shows a number of the series’ characters looking up as a mysterious comet races across the sky. That includes Sadoc Burrows (Lenny Henry), the Elven High King Gil-Galad (Benjamin Walker), and the Dwarf Prince Durin IV (Owain Arthur). Familiar Lord of the Rings staples like Galadriel (Morfydd Clark) and Elrond (Robert Aramayo) appear as well. We also see other new heroes like the Silvan Elf Arondir (Ismael Cruz Córdova) and the human healer Bronwyn (Nazanin Boniadi).
A 15-second version of the promo can be viewed below. To watch the whole thing, log into your Amazon Prime account and click here.
Luckily, it won’t be long before Amazon shares even more footage from The Rings of Power. The spot also confirms that the next teaser for the series will arrive next Thursday, July 14. All of which leads up to the show’s upcoming Hall H panel at San Diego Comic-Con later this month. Details are scarce, but we can reportedly expect appearances by the stars and creators themselves, which means showrunners JD Payne and Patrick McKay will likely show up.
The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power will debut on Amazon Prime on September 2.
