Amazon Studios Has Its Eye On Bringing Back The Major Villain Sauron For its Upcoming The Lord Of The Rings Series
The official synopsis of the show, published exclusively by The One Ring.net, appears to suggest that the show will almost certainly build into the Destruction of Númenor, a cataclysmic scenario of wrath-of-the-gods that leads to the foundation of Gondor, and from the very first scenes of The Fellowship of the Ring, the great battle-prologue moviegoers and fans will surely remember.
The Synopsis Which Does Not Mention Sauron, But Eludes to Him:
This epic drama is set thousands of years before the events of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings and will take viewers back to an era in which great powers were forged, kingdoms rose to glory and fell to ruin, unlikely heroes were tested, hope hung by the finest of threads, and the greatest villain that ever flowed from Tolkien’s pen threatened to cover all the world in darkness.
Beginning in a time of relative peace, the series follows an ensemble cast of characters, both familiar and new, as they confront the long-feared re-emergence of evil to Middle-earth. From the darkest depths of the Misty Mountains to the majestic forests of the elf-capital of Lindon, to the breathtaking island kingdom of Númenor, to the furthest reaches of the map, these kingdoms and characters will carve out legacies that live on long after they are gone.
Some of you may think that he couldn’t possibly be the main baddy because there were others. Well, Morgoth was captured and put in chains at the end of the First Age. Sauron is the primary enemy of the Second Age (and the Third Age). Corrupting Ar-Pharazon — the last king of Numenor — and those loyal to him to go and attack the land of Aman to the west.
