Amazon’s forthcoming fantasy series, The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, has now provided fans with their first glimpse at the orcs.
It’s really a long way that Amazon’s The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power has gone through. Since the beginning of the year, the first trailer for the series has been released, and the showrunner has confirmed plans for five seasons. And now, Orcs, the primary foot soldiers of the antagonists, have finally been brought to life for the very first time.
When it comes to fantasy novels, Orcs are often depicted as go-to creatures who blindly obey the orders of an evil overlord. Melkor, the first evil lord, created them from elves in The Lord of the Rings. The Orcs, in their turn, served as Melkor’s primary foot soldiers. However, following Melkor’s downfall, they vanished for a while, only to reappear in The Second Age when Sauron ascended to power.
Amazon provided us our first glance at the orcs from The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power. You may see the photographs in full down below:
The first episode of the series is set to hit Amazon on September 2, 2022.
