If you look HERE, you can see an absolutely exceptional look at the series, which will cover several reaches of Middle-Earth. You can see in here dwarves, elves, hobbits, and so much more, and visually the locations are as stunning as you would expect.
Where do most of our questions lie? It’s quite simple: The story itself. We know that the series will explore the origins of many of the other notable rings mentioned in the Peter Jackson films and the J.R.R. Tolkien novels, but there is little mention of them here at all. You could get more of an original for characters like Elrond and Galadriel, but there are still questions about context and how things will be mapped out over time. At some point, the show does have to market itself on something more than just the larger universe. We also hope personally that a few of the effects get more polished leading into the premiere.
There is no denying that this is quite possibly the biggest series to ever premiere on Amazon. There is a huge per-episode price tag here and we’re pretty darn confident that there will also be a flurry of promotion over the next couple of months. As someone who absolutely loves the source material, we really hope that this is great. We do still have more than a month and a half to go, so we’re pretty confident that there’s going to be more released in the form of footage.
