Lord Elrond also makes a comeback, with Robert Aramayo replacing Hugo Weaving in the part. The show is anticipated to include a number of well-known places in addition to returning characters. The return of the Dwarven kingdom of Khazad-dûm, also known as Moria, is depicted in trailers, giving viewers a brief glimpse of the scenic magnificence of Middle-earth. The setting is now better than ever in a new trailer for “The Rings of Power.”

In Peter Jackson’s first The Lord of the Rings movie, the kingdom is in ruins as Frodo, Gandalf, and the rest of the Fellowship enter the Mines of Moria. The area seems to have been abandoned for a long time because the floors are covered in Dwarf bodies. The Rings of Power clip appears to depict Moria in its heyday, with the mines operating at full capacity and a bustling Dwarf populace maintaining everything. Disa, played by Sophia Nomvete, welcomes Elrond with a warm hug, while Durin, played by Arthur, seems to be a significant figure in the kingdom.
Arthur’s reply regarding what is happening in Moria is unclear, but it appears that the Dwarves may be keeping something from the rest of Middle-earth. The most recent trailer for “The Rings of Power” depicts Elrond visiting Moria despite the Dwarves’ reclusive way of life, possibly indicating that the Elven lord believes there may be more to Moria than first appears. Fans won’t have much longer to wait to visit the brand-new Mines of Moria as “The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power” is set to be released in less than a week.
