‘Lord of the Rings’ TV Show Gets Character Posters
You can tell a lot about a person based on their hands, or so Amazon’s “Lord of the Rings” series hopes. The highly anticipated fantasy series, officially titled “The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power,” released a set of 23 posters on Thursday, giving fans a look at the cast of Middle-earth characters, but sadly only their hands.
But what secrets do these 23 pairs of hands hold? Well, almost every character is holding something, whether it’s a weapon, apple, flower, acorns, rope, or scroll. Some of them aren’t even holding anything, choosing instead to clasp their hands in a stoic pose or wrap their arms neatly around their waists.
The character posters also give a good look at each person’s clothing, and each outfit looks like it’s pulled from the pages of JRR Tolkien. There are ornate robes, intimidating pieces of armor, crumpled shirts – not to mention the dazzling jewelry some characters sport.
Hands belong to “The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power” cast members Cynthia Addai-Robinson, Robert Aramayo, Owain Arthur, Maxim Baldry, Nazanin Boniadi, Morfydd Clark, Ismael Cruz Córdova, Charles Edwards, Trystan Gravelle, Sir Lenny Henry, Ema Horvath, Markella Kavenagh, Joseph Mawle, Tyroe Muhafidin, Sophia Nomvete, Lloyd Owen, Megan Richards, Dylan Smith, Charlie Vickers, Leon Wadham, Benjamin Walker, Daniel Weyman and Sara Zwangobani.
Fans can return to Middle-earth on September 2, when the series launches on Amazon Prime Video. See the posters below.
