In a “LOTR” TV Show Image, The Creator of the “Rings of Power” Is Revealed

In a new artwork from “The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power”, Celebrimbor gets his due. The prequel to J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle-Earth novels will explore the events leading up to the well-known Second Age, including the forging of the “Rings of Power”, the advent of the Dark Lord Sauron, and more. J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay are the creators of “The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power”.

Robert Aramayo as Elrond, Maxim Baldry as Isildur, Morfydd Clark as Galadriel, Nazanin Boniadi, Owain Arthur, and others make up the ensemble cast for “The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power”. In 2017, Prime Video paid $250 million for the television rights to Tolkien’s “Lord of the Rings” novels, with a five-season production commitment allegedly costing at least $1 billion. “The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power” is set to premiere later this year after years of planning and production, and a huge new reveal has emerged.

Empire has released a new “The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power” image with only a few months till the show’s premiere. Celebrimbor, the inventor of the Rings of Power, is played by Charles Edwards from The Crown in the photo.

Celebrimbor was an elven-smith that Sauron led into creating the Rings of Power, notably the One Ring, in the hopes of ruling Middle-Earth, the crux of the “Lord of the Rings'” plot. He was first introduced in Tolkien’s The Silmarillion. Celebrimbor and the other Elves of Eregion learned Sauron’s devious plan in the novels and chose to preserve the remaining Rings of Power from the Dark Lord, resulting in the attack on the city and the fabled war between the elves and Sauron. Given that Sauron would triumph, Celebrimbor would be kidnapped and tortured by the “Lord of the Rings” villain, eventually succumbing to his wounds.

In the “Lord of the Rings” TV show, Charles Edwards plays Celebrimbor, the inventor of “The Rings of Power”, marking the first major depiction of the character in a live-action rendition of Tolkien’s writings. Celebrimbor appeared on screen in Monolith Productions’ Middle-earth video games, where he was spiritually associated with the player character Talion, but the Prime Video series will go deeper into Celebrimbor’s acts and how they nearly brought Middle-earth down. “The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power” will be available on Prime Video on September 2, ending the wait for the Celebrimbor’s live-action premiere.
