She bowed out with the amazing revelation at the end of her first season, but The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power series on Amazon Prime Video has far from given us all her secrets. Discover where the creation of this universe inspired by Tolkien’s works started.

What future for Lord of the Rings?

A page has been turned with the end of the broadcast of The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power on Amazon Prime Video. Absolutely eagerly awaited, the series sparked many heated debates throughout its first season. And since the sequel shouldn’t be coming for very long, it might be time to take a closer look behind the scenes of the creation of the series. For now, on Amazon Prime Video, it is the adaptation of William Gibson’s novel, Peripherals: The Worlds of Flynne, that has taken over the Friday slot to follow Rings of power on the streaming platform. A series of SF, where we quite well find the paw of the executive producers Lisa Joy and Jonathan Nolan (Westworld) in a story characterized by virtual reality and ultra-realistic simulation. If the future of The Lord of the Rings could also continue through new feature films, as David Zaslav, CEO of Warner Bros. Discovery is a return to the origins of the artistic universe of the series Rings of power which we offer here.


Behind the scenes in the artistic creation of the Rings of Power

Indeed, the watchful eye of the Kotaku teams has made it possible illuminate the creative process of The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power interested in the work of artists without which the series would never have shined so visually. Because if there is one aspect of the series that has won unanimity, it is precisely its artistic direction, which gives us wonderful panoramas that recreate the lands that JRR Tolkien imagines in his writings. The magnificent landscapes of Middle-earth, but also of the island kingdom of NĂºmenor, are the fruit of the work many artists who have agreed to reveal their portfolios to Kotaku, and of which we provide a sample here, with links to their own exchange rooms at Artstation.
