Lord Of The Rings Fans Spot OG Character In Reboot Trailer

Lord Of The Rings Fans Spot OG Character In Reboot Trailer

We can't wait to watch this.

Lord of the Rings fans have just noticed that a character from the original film franchise has appeared features in the new teaser trailer.

Bringing people back to Middle-earth once more, Amazon Studios dropped the trailer for The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power this weekend - and fans wasted no time dissecting the it.

Watch the teaser here:

Taking place thousands of years before The Lord of the Rings, this prequel series will explore the Second Age of Middle-earth. And despite the major time-jump, we did spot one familiar character.

Just 20 seconds into the thrilled teaser trailer, we see Galadriel climbing up a deadly ice wall, ditching her ethereal snow-white gown for a suit of armour.

In the forthcoming series, the royal Elf - originally played by Cate Blanchett in the Lord of the Rings series - will be played by Morfydd Clark.

Centuries younger, it looks like this Galadriel is bold, strong, and ready for a fight.

While The Rings of Power isn't based on one of J.R.R Tolkien's novels, it sets out to uncover the expansive world and backstory that he has laid out across the LOTR trilogy.

A description of the highly-anticipated series from Amazon reads: "Beginning in a time of relative peace, the series follows an ensemble cast of characters, both familiar and new, as they confront the long-feared re-emergence of evil to Middle-earth.

"From the darkest depths of the Misty Mountains, to the majestic forests of the elf capital of Lindon, to the breathtaking island kingdom of Numenor, to the farthest reaches of the map, these kingdoms and characters will carve out legacies that live on long after they are gone."

Eventually, the stories told in The Rings of Power will lead to the monumental forging of the rings - three for the elves, seven of the dwarves, nine for the men, and the additional One ring forged by Sauron.

We can't wait to sink our teeth into this one.

Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power will air on Amazon Prime Video on 2nd September.
