Amazon Studios’ Lord of the Rings TV series, The Rings of Power, is set to premiere next week. Ahead of that, social media reactions are in, and many are speaking very positively about the show.
Steven Weintraub of Collider said fans should “prepare to be blown away by the scale and scope of The Rings of Power.” Anthony of The Movie Podcast said The Rings of Power is a “cinematic masterpiece.”
Devan Coggan of Entertainment Weekly said the first two episodes they saw were a “total joy.” Coggan added, “Watching it feels like stepping back into Middle-earth.”

The Rings of Power premieres September 1 at 6 PM PT / 9 PM ET with two episodes. Fans wanting to watch a little sooner can see the episodes in theaters for a one-night event on August 31. The remaining episodes will air Fridays at 12 AM ET on Prime Video.
The Rings of Power premieres not long after HBO’s fantasy show, House of the Dragon, which dropped its first episode on August 21. Author George R.R. Martin has commented on the so-called “rivalry” between House of the Dragon and The Rings of Power, saying he hopes both shows succeed.

Here’s something you probably didn’t expect to hear. I thought #TheRingsOfPower was pretty great. Interesting new characters. Unusual locations. The looming threat of Sauron and some spectacular visual imagery. I devoured the episodes, and am excited to watch more. pic.twitter.com/uCTsjnLZpZ
