This month, executive producer/director JA Bayona talked about the one main rule that governs the creation of power rings.

“When you read [JRR] Tolkien’s books, you can tell how much he appreciates beauty, so the show is full of beauty.

“Tolkien is inherently optimistic, warm and emotional,” he continued. “He’s a man who’s been through some of the darkest things in human history. [the First World War] and he didn’t come out of it writing a horrible, hopeless story.

“[Tolkien] wrote a story about hope and a successful little guy. We’ve always thought it was rule number one that you need true optimism and love, even in the darkest and scariest moments of the show.”

When the first season finally hits our screens, don’t expect a simple overhaul of Peter Jackson’s classic movie trilogy.

Co-showrunner Patrick McKay explained earlier this summer: “Anyone who approaches the Lord of the Rings on screen would be wrong not to think how wonderfully fair [Jackson] had so many. But we are admirers from afar, that’s all. power rings don’t try to compete with him.

“You can force yourself to follow the Joneses, but one of the mantras about it was ‘go back to basics’. What would Tolkien do?”

The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power will be broadcast on Amazon Prime Video from September 2.
