Earlier today, the LOTRonPrime Twitter account — the official Twitter account for the Amazon Prime version of The Lord of The Rings — revealed a brand-new teaser photo along with the planned release date for episode one of this new adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s most well-known work.
Thanks to this post we know that the Lord of the Rings will begin on Sept. 2, 2022 on Amazon Prime. And despite only a single image accompanies the post, there is much to see.
The brightest spot in the image is almost certainly Laurelin, The Gold Tree. And if you look very closely, you’ll also spot Telperion, The Silver Tree, right next to it. The foliage, dew, and fruit of these massive trees brought light to Valar before the Sun and Moon were created from the two as they died.
Since both gigantic trees are shining simultaneously in the image, it could be inferred that this image is either during dawn or dusk.
But that’s where things start to get interesting. As of right now, there has been no official indication about what part of Tolkien’s mythology this show will take place within. The Trees of Valinor existed well before the story of Frodo’s journey, so that could mean any number of things.
It could be that this show focuses on a time in this world that we’ve never seen put to film yet or it could simply be a flashback. There’s no way to tell for sure at this point in time.
However, it’s entirely clear that this is one stunning wide shot. Sure, the eyes are drawn to Laurelin and Telperion because of their brightness. But the tall grassy field and the castle dominating the left side of the image are equally as incredible.
The Lord of the Rings debuts on Amazon Prime Sept. 2, 2022. You can check out the official Tweet about the upcoming The Lord of the Rings tv show on Amazon down below.
