The new series is set in the Second Age of Middle-Earth, a few thousand years before the events of the original movie trilogy, but will still feature several recognisable names including Galadriel, Elrond and Isildur.

Some excellent news for fans of the Lord of the Rings franchise, Amazon Prime Video has now confirmed that The Rings of Power’s release date has been shifted one day early – here is everything you need to know.

Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power – Release date and time changes

Yesterday, August 16th, Amazon Prime Video announced in a social media post that their upcoming Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power series would release one day earlier than previously scheduled.

The series was initially slated to debut worldwide on Friday, September 2nd – this has now been moved up one day to Thursday, September 1st for viewers in select international territories.

As confirmed by the OTT streaming giant, the special two-episode premiere of The Rings of Power will launch from 9 PM Eastern Standard Time on September 1st.

“I think it explores un-explored regions of the story so far. So it’s based on the appendices which come at the end of the ‘Lord of the Rings’ trilogy. And then also, poems and songs and stories and half-whispered rumors and histories that are found sort of scattered throughout the text.” – Executive producer and co-showrunner JD Payne, via The Wrap.

Director JA Bayona recently explained how “We all love what Peter Jackson did and at the very beginning, we thought about establishing some kind of a bridge between the show and the movies. But then, as you realise the complexity of each world, you get invested in your own story. Then, unconsciously, you start to create something that has its own life.

“The bar was set very high, and I’m glad that Amazon had the ambition of going there – I tried to at least match what Peter Jackson did – but the more we were working with the characters and the story, the more we were unconsciously disconnecting from the movies.” – JA Bayona, SFX Magazine and via Games Radar

Bayona added how “When you read Tolkien’s books, you can tell how much he appreciates beauty, so the show is full of beauty. Tolkien is inherently optimistic, warm and emotional.

“This is a man who went through some of the darkest things in human history [in World War I] and he didn’t come out of that and write a despairing, awful story. [Tolkien] wrote a story about hope, and a little guy succeeding. We always felt that it was rule number one that there needed to be true optimism and love, even in the darkest, scariest moments of the show.” – JA Bayona, SFX Magazine and via CBR.
