news culture The Lord of the Rings Amazon: A detail about the Rings of Power has fans screaming! Production reacts

New adaptation of Tolkien’s universe, The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power will be available on September 2 on Amazon Prime Video for subscribers. Set in the Second Age, the series will chronicle the rise of Sauron, but one detail has recently angered JRR Tolkien fans!

The Rings of Power, a poisoned gift

Depicting the life of the Pievelus, Elves, Dwarves and Men long before The Lord of the Rings, the Rings of Power series will explore something that has never been adapted before : the Second Age. It was during the latter that Sauron, disciple of Melkor (Morgoth), begins to expand his influence in Middle Earth. Spectators will cross paths with Elrond, by Galadriel, CelebrimborDurin IV, or even Isildur, as they sense that something is going on.

The series that cost Amazon so much does not bear the name of the Rings of Power for nothing, since we will witness the creation of the magic rings, and probably the creation of the One Ring by Sauron. His presence is moreover widely felt in the trailer released mid-Julysince we see his gauntlet as well as his symbol Many times. We should also attend the Fall of Numenora whole bunch of side stories and plenty of battles against the infamous killer whales of Barad-dûr.

However, it is important to note that Amazon does not own the rights to the Silmarillion, which narrates in detail the creation of the world Arda, but also the misadventures of elves, men and dwarves facing Morgoth. On the other hand, Amazon can adapt The Lord of the Rings and its Appendices, and The Hobbit. The appendices largely summarize what happens in the Second Age, which provides material.

The detail that makes fans furious

But recently, one detail in particular, which only connoisseurs of the work of the English writer know, has unleashed passions. Indeed, several promotional shots show Galadriel (Morfydd Clark) in armor that strongly resembles those of the line of Feanor“the most beautiful, the most intelligent, the most gifted of the Children of Ilúvatar (God)”, the one who created the ‘Silmarils’, marvelous powerful and coveted gems.

he is also Celebrimbo’s grandfatherr, the legendary blacksmith of the Eldar, who created the magic rings. However, in the works, the line of Feanor is for a very long time a rival to the clan of Galadriel, which returns it well to them. In other words, for some fans, it has nothing to do with this armor! Lindsey Weber, producer of the series, got wind of this controversy from experts, but quickly swept her awayexplaining that everything would be justified in the series:

To give some context, even if it’s not something generally taken into account by Internet users: it’s not really his armor, it was given to him by someone.

Not sure that this justification suits everyone, but at least, we know that we will be entitled to an explanation at the appropriate time. But who will give this armor to Galadriel? We can immediately think of Celebrimbor, since he is the grandson of Feanor, and it is he who offers the Nenya ring to Galadriel. This is just one theory among many.but we will have to wait another month before we get the answer!
