The epic high fantasy films immediately became a phenomenon, and the franchise has been regarded as one of the greatest film series of all time.

In November 2017, Amazon Prime Video bought the rights to a lord of the rings television series for $250 million, and filming for season 1 began in February 2020. It was not until January 2022 that the title of the series was revealed to be The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power.

Prime Video clearly has high hopes for the project, as it’s poised to be one of the most expensive shows of all time.

Read Monaghan’s full comment below:
It’s a bit peculiar. We were lucky enough to be treated to dinner yesterday by the wonderful people at Audible and TreeFort, and we went to Nobu, which is an amazing Japanese restaurant. And directly in front of Nobu was a massive 100 foot Rings of Power thing. I sat looking at these characters for the rest of the night and said to the guys, “This is a little weird.” It’s strange to see.
I wish him the best of luck. I hope it goes well, and especially for the actors, because I lean towards the actors. I hope you have fun. I hope they don’t feel the pressure of expectation or what had happened with the Peter Jackson trilogy. I hope they just think, “This is a great job, I’ve made some great friends, I hope it continues,” and embrace it, because these kinds of jobs, the jobs that end up being the best jobs you’ve ever done, can be gone in the blink of an eye. and close your eyes. You can say, “Oh, I’m going to do this for years,” and all of a sudden, three years go by, and you’re like, “What, where did that go?” And it’s done.
I hope they enjoy it, I hope they have fun, I hope it’s a huge success.
From lord of the ringsMonaghan has moved on to several major projects, including starring in the JJ Abrams series Lost and appears in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Monaghan is currently featured exclusively on Audible Moriarty: The Devil’s Game. Although Monaghan has starred in several notable works since his lord of the rings days, he still reflects on the years of filming and film premieres with great love and nostalgia, and wants the Rings of Power chaste to be able to do the same. No one knows better than Monaghan how incredible it can be to work in a world like Middle Earth. His comments on hope Rings of Power stars embrace the moment must be rooted in their own experience; lord of the rings he probably flew by, and now he wants others to appreciate what they have.
Along with spectacular cinematography, action sequences and sincere dialogues, the setting lord of the rings apart from other film series is its ensemble cast. The main cast had a palpable connection with each other that extended off screen, and many of them remain close friends to this day. Although Monaghan experienced great notoriety for his role in The Lord of the Rings, are the friendships and experiences he remembers most from his time on set. That he wants the same for the The Lord of the Rings: The rings of power The cast is a sweet way to hand over the baton to Middle-earth’s newest ensemble.
