Lord of the Rings: Amazon Series Plot Details Revealed

The official synopsis for Amazon's The Lord of the Ring TV series has been revealed, giving fans a glimpse of what their next adventure into Midde-earth will be.

The plot synopsis was obtained by by TheOneRing.Net and confirmed by IGN, and while it doesn't give a ton of new details, it does mention some of the locations that will be featured in the show, including the Misty Mountains, Lindon, and Nķmenor.

The full synopsis is as follows;
"Amazon Studiosí forthcoming series brings to screens for the very first time the heroic legends of the fabled Second Age of Middle-earthís history. This epic drama is set thousands of years before the events of J.R.R. Tolkienís The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, and will take viewers back to an era in which great powers were forged, kingdoms rose to glory and fell to ruin, unlikely heroes were tested, hope hung by the finest of threads, and the greatest villain that ever flowed from Tolkienís pen threatened to cover all the world in darkness. 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 Nķmenor, to the furthest reaches of the map, these kingdoms and characters will carve out legacies that live on long after they are gone."

Amazon's The Lord of the Rings prequel will take place in the Second Age of Middle-earth, which spans a long period of time between the original Dark Lord Morgoth and the first defeat of his servant Sauron.

1. This is a great idea. A Harry Potter prequel can't be far behind.
