So we have finally gotten some solid tidings regarding Amazon's The Rings of Power series, courtesy of this Vanity Fair article which, though long, is in-depth and wonderfully informative, hence a must-read. I shall do my best to extract the core elements from it.
|Galadriel, presumably during the War of Wrath seeing as her armor |
is marked with the star of the House of Fëanor
- A millennia younger Galadriel still reeling from the War of Wrath that ended the First Age that was itself and end to the War of the Jewels which saw basically her entire family – naturally excepting her father Finarfin and her husband Celeborn – killed. She is described as being "far from the wise, ethereal Elven queen that Cate Blanchett brought to Peter Jackson’s acclaimed films", instead being as angry and brash as she is clever, and certain that evil is looming closer than anyone realizes and determined to save the future.
- Halbrand, a new character not invented by Tolkien who is a fugitive from his own past and encounters Galadriel in rather wet circumstances (i.e. they are both struggling for survival on a raft in the stormy Belegaer.).
