Straight from the pages of ‘Legendary’, JRR Tolkien’s collection of essays on the legendarium, comes the character of Celebrimbor, one of the elves responsible for forging the Rings of Power, into the ‘Lord of the Rings’ series. Via Empire Magazine, Prime Video has revealed a first image of this blacksmith who also appears in ‘The Silmarillion’ and the one who puts a face on the screen Charles Edwards, Dr. Macdonald from ‘The Terror’.
The showrunners of the series, JD Payne and Patrick McKay, comment in the article that accompanies the photo that they are not trying to compete with Peter Jackson’s trilogy, but that Sauron’s influence will be very present in the plots. About Celebrimbor Payne says that it is “one of the central figures of history” and describes it as “an elven blacksmith who was manipulated into helping create the Rings of Power.” They add that they are very excited to bring it to the screen from the pages of the legendarium of Tolkien because it is “all a mystery”. Although he has not yet made the leap to the real image, Celebrimbor does appear in several video games such as ‘Shadow Of Mordor’ and ‘Shadow Of War’.
Regarding the tone that we will see in the series, Payne assures that they will not be kidding about getting serious and dark: “It takes you to the steps of Cirith Ungol and to Shelob’s lair, where friends betray each other and characters are dragged into Mordor. It’s a harrowing experience that you go through. But in the end, there’s always a star in the sky that says, ‘Keep going.’ We wanted to find that spirit in the series.” ‘The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power’ takes place 1,000 years before ‘The Fellowship of the Ring’, set in the Second Age of Middle-earth, at a time of relative peace after Morgoth, master of Sauron, was defeated. , and with scenarios full of elves, dwarves and halflings.
With five seasons planned ahead, ‘The Rings of Power’ will chronicle the lives and adventures of a huge cast and take us from the Misty Mountains to the island kingdom of Númenor. JA Bayona is directing and Ron Ames is in charge of production. The cast includes, among others, Morfydd Clark, Lenny Henry, Robert Aramayo, Markella Kavenagh and Benjamin Walker. The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power premieres on Prime Video on September 2.
