If we were to make a list of the most anticipated TV shows of 2022, no doubt The Lord of the Rings: Rings of Power It would be one of the first places. Although in its first trailer we could already see part of Amazon’s vision – of course previously endorsed by the Tolkien Estate – for such a fantasy universe, Tolkien fans were left wanting to see orcs. However, now we finally get our first look at the formidable creatures.
Amazon Prime Video, via IGNshared new images from Lord of the Rings: Rings of Power, which are completely performed by orcs. If you’re a fan of the universe created by J.R.R. Tolkien, and even if you’ve only watched Peter Jackson’s films, you know very well how important these creatures are in Middle-earth. Its origin, yes, was never completely clear; despite the fact that part fandom suggests that they were elves in the past.
In the material, we see that the orcs are presented in a different aspect than in the productions of Peter Jackson. This is evidenced mainly by the clothes they wear. And it is in feature films that we are used to seeing them in classic armor. ATThe Lord of the Rings: Rings of PowerHowever, we have not yet reached the conflict in which humans, elves and dwarves clashed with Sauron.
Of course the orcs will return with the same savagery and violence which has always characterized them. Another important point is that, unlike the films where they were shown en masse, because they were the army of Mordor, in Lord of the Rings: Rings of Power They appear in greatly reduced groups. But don’t let the above fool you, because they are still very dangerous creatures. The pictures prove it.

“Beginning in a time of relative peace, the series follows characters both familiar and new who take on a terrible resurgence of evil in Middle-earth. From the darkest depths of the Misty Mountains to the majestic forests of Lindon, capital of the elves, through the stunning island kingdom of Numenor to the furthest corners of the map, these kingdoms and characters will create a legacy that will last. after they left,” reads the synopsis.
Let’s remember that Lord of the Rings: Rings of Power take place during the Second Age of Middle-earth. That is, its events take place thousands of years before what happened in the movies. Places like Numenor will be of great importance; also events such as ring forging and, of course, rebirth of sauron. Amazon is aware of the huge expectations for the series, which is why they have set aside a budget that has never been seen before in a TV production. It is currently the most expensive series in history.
