This series is being written to guide fans of the series to new perspectives and characters from what is widely and previously known, but will stay with what the original creator had in mind.
Payne addressed the breadth of the mythology the author had raised, which unleashed all his creativity: “It was as if Tolkien put some stars in the sky and let us distinguish the constellations. In his letters (particularly one to his editor), Tolkien spoke of wanting to leave behind a mythology that ‘allowed other minds and hands to wield the tools of painting, music and drama’. We are doing what Tolkien wanted. As long as we felt that each of our inventions was true to its essence, we knew we were on the right track,” he explained.
The critic points out that planning a complete series of five seasons is very ambitious, especially if it is not yet known if it will meet the expectations of the fans, who are the conjunctural piece of each project, since it is up to them whether the series are short or long.
So far the cast of this project has familiar characters like Isildur (Maxim Baldy), Lady Galadriel (Morfydd Clark) and Lord Elrond (Robert Aramayo). So a whole world of elves, dwarves, and harfoots awaits when “The Lord of the Rings: Rings of Power” debuts on Amazon on September 2.
