The Rings Of Power ‘Isn’t your dad's Middle-Earth’

>In many ways, Rings of Power will be a return to a screen universe that’s beloved the world over – but according to the show's concept artist John Howe, there are surprises in store.
>"This isn’t the Middle-earth you remember,” Howe tells Empire in the Summer Preview issue. “This is a world that’s very vibrant. The elves are not hidden away in Mirkwood or lingering in Rivendell. They’re busy constructing kingdoms. The dwarven kingdom of Moria is not an abandoned mine and the Grey Havens is not yet an abandoned city. I loved having the opportunity to explore that unseen history.”
>“We’re finally sailing on the oceans of Middle-earth,” teases Howe, promising a set of sea-faring elves. “They’re daunting and enterprising and are almost colonising the world. They were a lot of fun to imagine. It’s something neither Lord Of The Rings nor Hobbit movies went anywhere near.”

Looks like boatkino is back in the menu boys!

I have no idea what this maymay is even trying to convey

>Isn’t your dad's Middle-Earth
Who asked for that?



I want to see lots of fucking. Fuckin' and suckin'. Orc on Elf. Elf on Human. Balrog on Cave Troll. Human on Hobbit. Hobbit on Orc. If there isn't gratuitous nudity and at least one softcore porn scene in every episode I will be very upset.

What about full penetration?


Obviously. Tolkien envisioned hot nasty interspecies sex with deep hardcore penetration.

There is no sex and nudity in the show


that tariq is queen of niggers

Sounds like boring, conservative, normative trash. Sex sells. No sex makes Tolkien a dull boy.

IGN and other big outlets ran a story last year saying how this show will contain "tasteful nudity" and the other day I tried looking this up and I couldn't find a legitimate source for this anywhere. It's like these outlets all deleted those articles or something. I swear I'm not crazy, I fucking remember these "credible" sources running this story and now it's seemingly deconfirned.

How are they going to address the fact that only white elves got to go the heaven/Aman?
literally 100% of the elves in this pic are white so they are sticking them in monoracial societies in Lindon at least
The inclusion of the brown wood elf leads to problematic side effects tbqh

I remember them, but I think they were more worded like "Could contain tastful nudity" or something to that effect.

There is a literal single mother Elf who divorced a black Elf in the show. WOW I really love this new take on this franchise!!

ok, coomer.

Now it's a picture of Prince

No it's implying you're old and should be a dad by now user.

I'm 19

And your dad never saw LotR? Kind of based desu.

I had a kid when I was 19, he's 13 now. This was in 2008.

Seriously though, why did they make the Silvan elves brown? The Silvan elves are the only elves who literally achieved nothing lol.

>Elf on Human
Only good one, rest is just degenerate coomer fantasies

le noble savage cope

Name me one thing that failed because it didn't pander to chuds and incels
Just one

>This isn’t the Middle-earth you remember
So it's not The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, or the Silmarillion? But those are the things I like. Why would I want something that is not those things?

Cowboy beflop
Wheel of Fail
Any nu-trek

No it's your mom's

>Cowboy bebop
Yeah because live action anime had a great track record of success before Bebop, right? Literally more cursed than Vidya adaptations
>Wheel of Time
Was the most popular new series of 2021 in the US, so it did pretty well actually
>Star Trek
lol, Trek was '''woke''' from the beginning. Poor argument for a show renowned for its multi racial casts and addressing modern political issues
I mean it even has TVs first inter racial kiss, certainly didn't pander to chuds and incels

A daring synthesis

Who are the bucks of Middle Earth?

>article is just about boring set design and lore
>clickbait title makes it sound like woke shit to attract hateclicks
god i hate this kinda shit


Shit ton of modern media, don't feel like wasting hours of time.

Ah a true LOTR connoisseur

"The Shadow that bred them can only mock, it cannot make: not real new things of its own."

I had an accident when I was 19*

fixed that for you.


No fucking way

Ok race/casting heads up because I know that's what 90% of you only care about
>all the high elves are white, like literally every single one so don't expect any chinks even in the background.
>only non white elves are the shit tier Silvan elves who live around Harad so hundreds of miles away from the rest
>Dwarves of Khazad-dum are all white except a handful of immigrants from far away mountain ranges (like the female you keep meming about)
>Numenor is multi racial, but predominantly white, Queen of Numenor (Tar-Miriel) is pic rel, Tar-Palantir is white so he obviously married a black woman, one of Isildurs friends is played by a Maori actor
>hobbits/harfoots are multiracial but mainly the older characters, they are not a family but a travelling group migrating from the east. The 2 main harfoots are both white girls

But seriously how are they going to explain this?

There is no ‘dad’s middle earth,’ only middle earth, and this shit isn’t it.

>T. Dad

Trips of incredible faggotry.

you will, you wouldn't be spending every day on talking about it otherwise
you will watch it and then you will talk about it until the next episode the following week
>I wont though
you will

>This is a world that’s very vibrant. ... I loved having the opportunity to explore that unseen history.
>We’re finally sailing on the oceans of Middle-earth... It’s something neither Lord Of The Rings nor Hobbit movies went anywhere near.
I wish the series could actually be about things like this instead of the amateurish and stupid plot about awful characters we will inevitably get.

"Go woke go broke" negroes still haven't figured out that the cabal keep printing trillions to fund shit like this?

Majority of the cast is still white so that would reflect on this pic (which only contains a couple dozen elves) is white.

No one remembers Silmarillion because it hasnt been adapted to the screen. He's talking about past films here, thats why his quote goes on to talk about how the Elves aren't hiding in forests anymore and the dwarves have huge underground settlements. You know, things that fand of the movies arent familiar with because it has never been shown.

Here is your Galadriel, *harfoot*, Elendil and Ar-Pharazon bro

Yeah, it's called grooming. Heckin rad.
