A new image from “The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power” shows one of the Middle-terrifying earth’s cave trolls from a close-up perspective. Amazon Prime’s upcoming fantasy series, based on J. R. R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings books, is one of the streamer’s most anticipated original series ever. The show, produced by Patrick McKay and Patrick D. Payne, is set in the Second Age, thousands of years before the events of Tolkien’s books, and promises to introduce viewers to new people, places, and fights in the Middle-earth universe.
“The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power’s” first trailer revealed some of what’s to come in the new Amazon series, as well as suggestions that it’ll be different from Peter Jackson’s acclaimed “Lord of the Rings” trilogy. The movie indicates that evil is back in Middle-earth, but it leaves the types of enemies our heroes will confront a mystery. Morfydd Clark, Benjamin Walker, Peter Mullan, Robert Aramayo, Nanzanin Boniadi, Cynthia Addai-Robinson, Alex Tarrant, and Ismael Cruz Cordova star in The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, which also stars Benjamin Walker, Peter Mullan, Robert Aramayo, Nanzanin Boniadi, Cynthia Addai-Robinson, Alex Tarrant, and Ismael Cruz Cordova
Fans of “Lord of the Rings” may get their first up-close look at one of the series’ trolls in a new image from Empire Magazine. Despite the fact that this isn’t the first time a troll has shown on screen in the franchise, this one is identified as a snow-troll, distinguishing it from prior renditions.
In Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, the titular fellowship was ambushed by a cave-troll in the Mines of Moria, giving audiences their first look at a troll. Trolls will subsequently appear in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, but this new artwork suggests a troll type not yet encountered onscreen by moviegoers. It’s unclear when or where the snow-troll will appear in “The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power”, but the creature’s name suggests that it lives in colder climates.
It’s probable that Clark’s Galadriel is the character shown in the image with the blazing torch, as she is seen crossing a cold landscape in the trailer for “LOTR: The Rings of Power”. Regardless matter who is the target of the troll’s rage, the image clearly shows that snow trolls are the most terrifying Middle-earth trolls yet seen on screen. It’s unclear whether the snow-troll will play a major role in “The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power”, but given that a troll nearly killed Frodo in Jackson’s first film, at least one of the show’s heroes will have their work cut out for them in destroying it.
