While “The Rings of Power” is set thousands of years before the events of “The Lord of the Rings” or “The Hobbit” and in a completely separate continuum, that doesn’t mean do not have not at all common connection between two distinctly different time periods in Middle-earth history. Some familiar faces, previously-seen locations, and the Dark Lord sauron will all help give fans insight when it’s time to contextualize where “The Rings of Power” fits into the timeline. overall time. But what if Prime Video took a much more direct route instead?
In a new interview with Total movies, JD Payne and Patrick McKay, the two co-presenters of “The Rings of Power,” were asked about things that could have happened if decision-makers had chosen otherwise. Somewhat surprised when Payne points out that anything and everything is on the table.
“When we first started working, we were told there were dozens of other people taking their hats off and everyone was coming up with different things. Amazon bought the rights to the trio, the appendix, and ‘The Hobbit.’ They say the field is very open – you can tell any story in that material, so you’ve got people promoting the Young Aragon show, or the Gimli commercial, or things other. “
In addition to confirming previous reports, this quote also provides quite a bit of insight into what Prime Video can embed (as I reported here while doing at Comic-Con).
On September 2, 2022, we’ll find out if “The Rings of Power” proves to be, as Payne puts it, “worthy of Tolkien”.
