'The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power': Galadriel will be completely different from what fans are used to

When it was announced that Morfydd Clark (‘Saint Maud’) would bring Galadriel to life in ‘The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power‘, fans were curious to know what a representation of the character in adventures before the films directed by Peter Jackson would look like.

But don’t expect a calm, graceful and pacifist Galadriel like that version lived by Cate Blanchett.

During an interview for the Comic Book, Clark revealed that he was surprised by the way in which the character was portrayed.

“I thought I was a fan because I thought I knew the character, but I was definitely surprised by the way she was portrayed on the show. I read ‘The Hobbit’ and ‘Lord of the Rings‘, I saw the movies, but I had no idea about the First and Second Ages of Middle-earth. It was really exciting to learn so many extra new things about this world that I already loved.”

She continued:

Enjoy watching:

“On the show, she’s younger and more impetuous. She still doesn’t have all that wisdom that we imagine, so I thought it was really interesting that she’s going through such a period and so many things that will help her shape up. I feel like the people in my life who ended up being more calm and collected like Galadriel have generally been through a lot.”

Finally, she argued:

“On the show, we have an opposing view of her, you know? Like, what did she go through to become that character we know?”

Remembering that the production has its premiere scheduled for september 01at 22:00 Brasilia time.

The plot will be set in the Second Age of Middle-earth, thousands of years before the events of ‘The Hobbit’ and ‘Lord of the Rings‘, adapting for the first time a territory that has only been delved into in titles like ‘The Silmarillion’ and ‘Unfinished Tales‘.

Because of this, the public is very curious to check out the episodes, which cost about half a billion dollars, turned into a real spectacle, with beautiful sets, costumes and visual effects.

And all this is being praised in the first reactions of the press.

Check out:

“Okay, the first two episodes of ‘The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power‘ are a spectacular sight. Witnessing the scale, ambition and grandeur is unparalleled on TV. The series also has the laborious task of introducing so much world-building that it takes a while to kick in. But overall, I’m very encouraged by the first two episodes. Each pocket of civilization they visit presents a new perspective and mythical cultural wonders. Simple plot mixed with a twinkle in the eye.”

“I saw the first 2 episodes of ‘The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power‘. Prepare to be amazed at the scale of production. I don’t know how they managed to do it, but they did a number of ‘Lord of the Rings‘ that seems is literally ‘Lord of the Rings’.”

“I ventured into the two episodes of ‘The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power‘ and… So far, so good! The production value is quite remarkable. It has breathtaking visuals, one after another, and the level of detail in the costumes and production design is another. As for the story/characters… These episodes do a great job introducing the main places/characters. Most impress quickly, but the biggest standouts for me were Bronwyn (Nazanin Boniadi) and Nori (Markella Kavenagh). I am especially impressed with how much they were able to share their passions/goals in just 2 episodes.”

“The first two episodes of ‘The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power’ are better than what was promoted during marketing, but the series has work to do to become an exciting storyline. It looks huge and sets up the factions well, but the pacing is a little slow. Dwarves are already cooler than in ‘The Hobbit‘!”

“Yes, I saw the first two episodes of ‘The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power‘. So far, it’s incredibly fun and promising. But other than that, it’s beautiful. Watch on the biggest screen you can. My only caveat is that I can easily see how the plot might fall apart or take off after the second episode.”

‘The new series’The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power’ it’s impressive. The huge budget simply bleeds onto the screen, and it *seems* like something that would fit alongside the movie trilogy of Peter Jackson. But even with such a big world, it’s never overwhelming and manages to stay focused.”

“I watched the first two episodes of ‘The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power‘ and the production is a powerhouse of storytelling, reaffirming why I love this saga and the kind of world-building that empowers and inspires. Also, there are badass women. I can’t forget them! ❤️”

The new epic drama brings to the screen for the first time the legendary story of the Second Age of Middle-earth from JRR Tolkien. Starting in a time of relative peace thousands of years before the events of Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings books, the series follows a cast of characters, both familiar and new, as they face the dreaded resurgence of evil on Earth- average.

“This is a title that we imagined could be on the spine of a book alongside other JRR Tolkien classics. The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power unites all the major stories of the Second Age of Middle-earth: The Forge of the Rings, the Rise of the Dark Lord Sauron, the epic tale of Númenor, and the Last Alliance of Elves and Men.” said the showrunners JD Payne and Patrick McKay. “Until now, audiences have only seen the story of the One Ring on screen — but before there was the One, there were many… and we are excited to share the epic story of them all.”

The main cast consists of Cynthia Addai-Robinson, Robert Aramayo, Owain Arthur, Maxim Baldry, Nazanin Boniadi, Morfydd Clark, Ismael Cruz Córdova, Charles Edwards, Trystan Gravelle, Sir Lenny Henry, Ema Horvath, Markella Kavenagh, Joseph Mawle, Tyroe Muhafidin, Sophia Nomvete, Lloyd Owen, Megan Richards, Dylan Smith, Charlie Vickers, Leon Wadham, Benjamin Walker, Daniel Weyman and Sara Zwangobani.

It is worth remembering that the production has already been renewed for the 2nd season.

The novel trilogy by Tolkien was originally adapted for cinema between 2001 and 2003, winning 17 Oscar statuettes, including the Best Director award for Peter Jackson and Best Film in 2004 for ‘The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King’. Later, the franchise also gained a prequel trilogy entitled ‘The Hobbit’.
