Production of the series is expected to resume shortly.
After three years since Amazon Studios acquired the rights to a Lord of the Rings series, fans are wondering what it will be, who we will see in the plot, and where and when it will take place. Now, a new synopsis answers some of those answers.
According to TheOneRing.net, the plot will take place a thousand years before the events of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, taking place during the Second Age of Middle-earth, while Númenor, one of the locations of the books that were left out in the other adaptations, should play an important role in the plot.
Check out the synopsis:
“The upcoming series from Amazon Studios brings the heroic legends of the legendary Second Age story of Middle-earth to the screen for the first time. The epic drama takes place thousands of years before the events of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, by JRR Tolkien, and will take viewers back to a time when great powers were forged, realms came to glory and fell into disrepair. , unlikely heroes were tested, hope was on a thin line, and the greatest villain that emerged from Tolkien’s writing threatened to cover the entire world in darkness.
