Amazon Prime has officially announced the title of their upcoming small-screen “Lord of the Rings” adaptation.

Showrunners J.D. Payne & Patrick McKay said “The Lord of the Rings : The Rings of Power” is one that “we imagine could live on the spine of a book next to J.R.R. Tolkien’s other classics”.

“The Rings of Power unites all the major stories of Middle-earth’s Second Age: the forging of the rings, the rise of the Dark Lord Sauron, the epic tale of Númenor, and the Last Alliance of Elves and Men. Until now, audiences have only seen on-screen the story of the One Ring –but before there was one, there were many… and we’re excited to share the epic story of them all.”
