New Sauron image from THE RINGS OF POWER season 2 and details on his story arc

We have a new image to share with you for Prime Video The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power Season 2. The photo offers a look at the Dark Lord Sauron, only he’s not so dark.

Sauron is played by Charlie Vickers in the epic fantasy series, and we also have some new details to share about the character thanks to the showrunners Mr. J.D. Payne AND Patrick McKay.

The second season of the series will tell the story of the rise of Sauron, and speaking to Empire, McKay said: “If I had to choose one reason to make this show and set it in this era of mythology, it would be that.

“From minute one, we talked about Milton’s Paradise Lost, Walter White and Tony Soprano, and how Sauron has the potential to be like these great hero-villains, where hero means protagonist. That’s the great untold story on the screen .”

In the first season of the series, Sauron sneaks around in the guise of Halbrand, but after being discovered, he takes on a new identity: the elegant elf Annatar.

Speaking about his reinvention, McKay said: “He was hiding in our story. The opportunity now with season two is: the audience is in on the scam. We know who he is. We have a pretty good idea of ​​what he wants.

“The fun is watching other people get caught in the web. As the season unfolds, the plan begins. One hammer after another starts to fall until, in the last two episodes, you realize the level and scope of how evil he is and how deeply he’s strategized this whole thing.

McKay goes on to explain: “All our stories start to become one story, and that one story is how the reemergence of Sauron touches everyone and threatens the entire world.”

Vickers also spoke about his character, saying: “I was so excited to get to this point in the story, because this is the canon of this time period. You have Sauron and Celebrimbor working together, creating rings.

“Everything Sauron does is to serve other people, to please someone else. In the same way that the whole Halbrand thing was for Galadriel, this new look is for Celebrimbor.

“This is the best way to get him to do what he wants: create a bunch of rings that will dominate all the others.”

I like everything I’ve heard and can’t wait to see how Sauron’s story develops!

The series is set “thousands of years before the events of JRR Tolkien’S The Hobbit AND The Lord of the Ringsand will take viewers back to a time when great powers were forged, kingdoms rose to glory and fell to ruin, unlikely heroes were tested, hope hung by the thinnest thread, and the greatest villain Tolkien had ever created threatened to plunge the entire world into darkness.

“Beginning in a time of relative peace, the series follows a cast of characters, both familiar and new, as they confront the long-feared resurgence of evil in Middle-earth.

“From the darkest depths of the Misty Mountains, to the majestic forests of the Elven capital of Lindon, to the extraordinary island kingdom of Númenor, to the farthest corners of the map, these kingdoms and characters will leave a legacy that will live on long after they are gone.”

In season two, Sauron has returned. Cast out by Galadriel, without an army or allies, the rising Dark Lord must now rely on his own cunning to rebuild his strength and oversee the creation of the Rings of Power, which will allow him to bind all the peoples of Middle-earth to his sinister will.

“Building on the epic scope and ambition of the first season, Amazon’s second season The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power It plunges even its most beloved and vulnerable characters into a rising tide of darkness, challenging each of them to find their place in a world increasingly teetering on the brink.

“Elves and dwarves, orcs and men, wizards and Harfoots… as friendships are tested and kingdoms begin to fracture, the forces of good fight ever more bravely to hold on to what matters most to them… themselves.”

The series is developed by the showrunners Mr. J.D. Payne AND Patrick McKay. The Rings of Power The second season will premiere on August 29 on Prime Video.
