The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power will give Galadriel her most iconic weapon from J.R.R. Tolkien’s original novels in Season 2, according to star Morfydd Clark.
Clark confirmed that the Prime Video series’ second season will expand Galadriel’s magical arsenal to include one of the three Elven rings, Nenya, in an interview with Deadline. “[Galadriel’s] about to have a life-changing thing happen to her,” she said. “She’s about to become acquainted with Nenya, her ring. It’s really exciting to see how the magic creeps in [in Season 2].” Clark added that Galadriel coming into possession of Nenya will put her center stage for the major upheaval headed Middle-earth’s way in Season 2. “When we finished Season 1, the rings were being made and we knew it was going to be a huge change for Middle-earth. [Galadriel] is going to be part of that change because she has her own ring.”
As Clark touched on in her response, The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power‘s first season wrapped up with Celebrimbor (Charles Edwards) and Elrond (Robert Aramayo) forging the first wave of magical jewelry that lends the show its name. All three of these Rings of Power featured an ornate design, which production designer Ramsey Avery previously attributed in part to the antique relic used to fabricate them. “We found this spectacular shield from a bog in Ireland,” he said. “It had these interesting shapes that interlocked and had these three swirls so that if you pour the materials into here… each separates out into its own area.”
Sauron is Unleashed in The Rings of Power Season 2
Whether Avery and his team will employ the Irish shield to produce The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power‘s remaining ring props remains to be seen, as does the timing of their introduction into the narrative itself. Amazon Studios has so far kept Season 2’s plot specifics under wraps, although several cast and crew members have indicated that the Lord of the Rings himself, Sauron (Charlie Vickers), will play an even bigger part in proceedings. This includes Princess Disa actor Sophia Nomvete, who recently teased the “mind-blowing” scope of Sauron’s villainy in the show’s next batch of episodes.
Sauron isn’t the only threat facing The Rings of Power‘s Middle-earth, though. The Amazon Studios production has had to deal with several real-life dramas as well, including a fire on one of its UK-based sets and the death of a horse during pre-filming rehearsals.
The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power Season 1 is currently streaming on Prime Video. Season 2 does not yet have a release date.
