Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,

Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,

Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die,

One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne

In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.

Such are the words spoken by Morfydd Clark, who will play a young Galadriel in the upcoming Prime Video series, taking place in the Lord of the Rings universe, over a new video that reveals the title for the show.

The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power will hit Amazon's streaming service Prime Video from September of this year (2022), bringing the heroic legends of the Second Age of Middle-earth's history to the screen for the first time, as we're transported thousands of years back, before the events of J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.

Handcrafting a number of different elements for the show, Amazon decided to do the same for the title video, physically forging the name of the series in a blacksmith foundry, where fiery molten metal was poured into hand-carved wooden ravines.

The whole process was captured in slow motion for the live-action Prime Video reveal, resulting in some stunning silvery metal letterwork, with lines of Elvish script inscribed along the crest of each letterform.

“This is a title that we imagine could live on the spine of a book next to J.R.R. Tolkien’s other classics. The Rings of Power unites all the major stories of Middle-earth’s Second Age: the forging of the rings, the rise of the Dark Lord Sauron, the epic tale of Númenor, and the Last Alliance of Elves and Men,” said showrunners J.D. Payne & Patrick McKay.

“Until now, audiences have only seen on-screen the story of the One Ring – but before there was one, there were many… and we’re excited to share the epic story of them all.”

Though The Rings of Power will begin at a time described as being at "relative peace", chaos looms, as audiences follow an ensemble cast of characters both familiar and new, as they confront the re-emergence of evil across the expansive region.

We will watch as unlikely heroes travel from the darkest depths of the Misty Mountains, to the majestic forests of the elf-capital of Lindon, as well as the breathtaking island kingdom of Númenor and beyond.

The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power will premiere exclusively on Prime Video in more than 240 countries around the world, on Friday September 2nd, 2022. New episodes will be available weekly thereafter.
