Most of the upcoming “Lord of the Rings” series at Amazon Studios are secretly wrapped. We know that it happened in the Second Age of Middle-earth, but that is still more than three thousand years of fictional history. It will not shrink things much.
But the official synopsis of the show (obtained by The Ring.net) seems to indicate that the show will almost inevitably be built towards the fall of Númenor. This is a catastrophic scene of God’s wrath that ultimately led to the establishment of Gondo. The big battle prologue movie audience will remember Lord of the Rings.
In the second era, there was only one “biggest villain”.It’s Sauron, and Lord of the Rings Appropriate, but not as you would recognize from the movie. In the second era, Sauron still had the ability to take a physical form, what he meant was that he became completely warm and charming.It’s a far cry from the 10-foot-tall armor wielding a mace in the first act of Peter Jackson Lord of the Rings.
“Long-term fear of reappearing evil to Middle-earth” can only mean Sauron, but if the creator of the series follows a clear rhythm, there are two options. The Dark Lord’s initial control of power in the second age was to pretend to be the benevolent messenger of the gods and to induce the elf to teach him to guard so that he could forge the ring of power. In the end, they found that he was actually the real powerful servant of the last Dark Lord, and kicked him out-when he retreated to Mordor, built the Black Gate, and began to do evil on the Main River.
The elf cooperated with the most powerful human kingdom, kicked his ass, and brought him back to Numanno as a prisoner. This brings us to the second possibility of the reappearance of terrible evil.
In the second era, there were many kingdoms that “rised and fell, succeeded or failed”, but basically there was only one Defined era. That’s Numanor, the “amazing island kingdom” mentioned in the following synopsis, which is the land of Aragon’s very, very old ancestors. The gods bestowed Numanor’s first king, a very powerful and lustrous human country, to thank him for defeating the old boss of Saron at the end of the First Era.
Sauron devised a worm-like internal corruption plan for the Numanor government from the prison cell, and achieved ridiculous success after years of the king’s rule. In Sauron’s final victory, the last king of Númenor attempted-to explain a little here-to invade heaven. In response, the gods raised a huge wave, crushed his fleet, and buried the entire island under the sea. (This wave also submerged Linton mentioned in the outline, but is known for its location as a gray haven.)
The fall of Numenor is not only the story of Tolkien’s tribute to Atlantis, Atlantis has a certain interest in him, but also a nightmare about his recurring childhood nightmare, his home was flooded by waves. .Only 9 ships survived the cataclysm, which contained Isildur-you might know it as that guy from the beginning Lord of the Rings Who refused to destroy a ring and then died like a guy.
These two scenes represent the known arcs of the Second Age of Middle-earth, as Tolkien described in the context of “Earth Age”. Lord of the Rings And in Thousands of miles. Amazon’s series may not have to choose between the two.
The show has been approved for five seasons and there is enough time for it game of ThronesThe multi-generational (multi-generational) history eventually leads to the destruction of Numenor and Esildur’s escape, and even the establishment of Gondor and the final battle with Sauron, marking the second era of End.
