In a press release, Prime Video touted the teaser trailer saying it “delves even deeper into this series adaptation,  giving fans the first look at some of Tolkien’s legendary characters from the island kingdom of Númenor.”

It further adds, “The characters are Isildur (Maxim Baldry), Elendil (Lloyd Owen), Pharazôn (Trystan Gravelle), and Queen Regent Míriel (Cynthia Addai-Robinson). Additional Númenóreans also recently announced are Kemen (Leon Wadham) and Eärien (Ema Horvath).”

The press release further notes, “The teaser trailer also highlights some of the realms viewers will visit over the course of the eight-part series, including the Elven realms of Lindon and Eregion, the Dwarven realm Khazad-dûm, the Southlands, the Northernmost Wastes, the Sundering Seas, and the island kingdom of Númenór.”

It concludes, “Also featured are key cast members Galadriel (Morfydd Clark), Elrond (Robert Aramayo), High King Gil-galad (Benjamin Walker), the Harfoots Marigold Brandyfoot (Sara Zwangobani), Elanor ‘Nori’ Brandyfoot (Markella Kavenagh), Poppy Proudfellow (Megan Richards) and Sadoc Burrows (Sir Lenny Henry), The Stranger (Daniel Weyman), the Dwarves King Durin III (Peter Mullan) and Prince Durin IV (Owain Arthur), Halbrand (Charlie Vickers), and Arondir (Ismael Cruz Córdova).”

On Twitter, TheElusiveEye1 wrote, “The visuals aren’t as cheap as the last teaser, but this show’s plot still isn’t clear. It’s jumping across events that all occurred over thousands of years, and the characters don’t resemble their book counterparts. My expectations are still pretty low.”

Lord of the Rings fan site (Torc) tweeted, “Thoughts on the Rings of Power trailer. It leans into two things: Warrior Galadriel & cavorting Harfoots (those new Bezos Hobbits). Weird, but not surprising, that the 2 things NOT a part of Tolkien’s story of the Rings of Power are central here again.”

The site further added, “Half the trailer is about Galadriel’s toxic masculinity. Elrond tells her to “put up” her sword. That the battle’s over…but Galadriel–who’s now apparently been at the vanguard of all those major battles she wasn’t in originally–has seen too much! She’s gotta fight! Toxic!”

“The trailer also never really lets on what the story is about. There’s elves/men/hobbits/orcs. There’s a meteor. There’s a big bad evil. But there’s no rings. No Annatar. No Celebrimbor. Nothing that reveals an actual engaging story,” Torc wrote.

He then questioned, “And since they’re compressing the story from thousands of years into a ‘single point in time’, I feel like we should know more. Who are the baddies? Why are they worried? Why did baby Superman’s spacecraft crash-land near the hobbits?”

Torc continued, “They also haven’t clarified who Halbrand is yet. Is he the Meteor Man too? Is he Annatar/Sauron? Is he a Númenorean (he’s in some Númenorean chamber in the trailer)? The trailer isn’t giving us anything to hang our hat on. Why should we care about this new character at all?”

He did praise the site’s visuals tweeting, “Visually, I think it looks great. It’s got all the fingerprints of Jackson’s LOTR films, so all they really had to do was rely on that blueprint to make it amazing. There are a lot of beautiful shots in the trailer, and if nothing else, the show will LOOK amazing.”

“In the end, they’re taking some wide licenses with characters and storylines,” Torc claimed. “They’re leaning heavily on their own characters (Harfoots, Arondir, Bronwyn, Halbrand), while also changing the ones we know from Tolkien’s works (Galadriel, Elrond).”

In conclusion, Torc tweeted, “So, it’ll be $1 billion fan fiction. It doesn’t seem like they’re really trying to hew close to anything Tolkien actually wrote (that may be because they don’t actually have the license for anything other than the Return of the King appendices).”

Finally, he lamented, “But SOME words that Tolkien originally wrote would’ve been nice in the trailer. *sigh*”

Bullrush Media tweeted, “Just saw the Rings of Power trailer and the visuals won’t make up for the inaccurate and bad storytelling.”

He added, “The line told to Galadriel by Eldron ‘It’s time to put away your sword’ proves that.”

Romulus_is tweeted, “It could have been a masterpiece, but it will only be a fad… .big budget, nice vfx, and excessive wookism, which discredits the medieval fantasy genre, in short thank you Peter Jackson.”

Twitter user Jean-Loup wrote, “Pretty visuals but are you seriously putting the two trees, the crossing of the Helcaraxë, the gifting of the rings to Durin and the fall of Numenor all in one tale?”

“You could have done something truly great if not for that time compression compromise,” he concluded.

Cxclapper80 tweeted, “This world is way to clean looking and can already tell it’s going to be shot like the Hobbit with cool visuals but horribly painfully cringy CGI shit action scenes and political agendas forced down our throat. Just hoping I’m wrong. Bring back the original trilogy look.”

D_erangedRanter tweeted, “Visually is astonishingly beautiful and well-crafted. My main concerns remain over how good the acting is. It felt a bit lacklustre and amateurish.”
