Played by Owain Arthur, the dwarf prince Durin IV is part of the family that rules the underground kingdom of Khazad-dûm. A character that readers of Tolkien or players of the video game The Lord of the Rings Online already know.

Among the new characters created for the series is the dwarf princess Disa, played by Sophia Nomvete. Amazon has yet to confirm whether Princess Disa and Prince Durin IV are related or not. There’s also Ismael Cruz Cordova as the elf Arondir who falls in love with the human Bronwyn, played by Nazanin Boniadi. The final character revealed is Halbrand, played by Charlie Vickers, who is portrayed as a mysterious fugitive trying to escape his past.

The Rings of Power series is set in the second age of Middle-earth, more than 1000 years before the events of The Lord of the Rings trilogy. It will tell the story of the creation of the Rings of Power, a story Tolkien refers to often but never wrote himself. As reported by CBR, Patrick McKay, one of the series’ showrunners, explains that the series will delve into how the rings came about and the impact they had on those who wore them. He said:

This is the history of the creation of all these powers, where they came from and what they did to each race.

The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power series will begin airing on Amazon Prime Video on September 2, 2022.
