8 Characters From Tolkien’s Book We Hope To See
Now it is clear that The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power will primarily focus on quirky characters in familiar settings–Bronwyn, Adar, etc..–but many canonical characters like Elrond, Gil-galad and Celebrimbor would have prominent roles. It gives Tolkien fans hope that some of the many small roles in the books might pop up here or there. There are so many great, fascinating characters in Tolkien’s legend that deserve a moment of recognition.
From kings of ancient and lost musicians to loyal captains and adventurers, Tolkien created many characters with incredible stories that would add so much to a series.
The wise wizard, Gandalf the Gray (or the White), certainly has a chance to show up just in time. As one of the helpers of the Valar and an instrumental figure in Middle-earth during the time of Sauron, it seems reasonable to assume that he might appear for an episode or two to aid the peoples of Middle-earth. to fight the Dark Lord. In the book, he took the form of an old man, and it would be interesting to see the show’s interpretation of Maiar’s forms before arriving in Middle-earth.
A new scene in the recently released trailer gives this theory at least some credence. While it could definitely be someone like Glorfindel or maybe even a dragon, the blazing fire comet that streaks across the sky and lands with an explosive burst of gold definitely looks like something out of this world. another world.
The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of PowerThe new trailer for showed a blink-and-you-miss-it scene on screen of a group of elves raising their swords together in what’s supposed to be a rendition of the famous Fëanor Oath, which he and his sons swore. together at the start of the First Age of Middle-earth.
If the show shows all seven sons of Fëanor (or even the one still alive at the time of the Rings of Power), one would expect Fëanor himself to be shown – or at least mentioned.
As JRR Tolkien’s most enigmatic and unpredictable character, Tom Bombadil offers screenwriters plenty of leeway. Tolkien never goes into his story with satisfactory depth, although he describes him as a different being from men, elves or hobbits, having existed since before. the elves have awakened before the creation of the Sun or the Moon.
Although in the books he actively refuses to have anything to do with the One Ring, it’s not out of the question that the Harfoots, on their adventure, might encounter him and his wife, Goldberry, in a manner similar to how Frodo and his fellow Hobbits stumbled upon them – as a friendly couple ready to eat and rest for weary travellers.
Glorfindel only has a small role in the books as an elven rider from Rivendell who helped Frodo to reach the shelter after being attacked by a Ringwraith. However, his backstory as captain of the fallen city of Gondolin, who is reborn in Middle-earth with the sole purpose of helping them through the impending war with Sauron.
Since he played such a huge role in defending Rivendell in the Third Age, it would be great to see Glorfindel finally given a characterization in this screen adaptation that he didn’t get in the movies.
As the Numenorean ruler, Tar-Miriel is confirmed to be played by Cynthia Addai-Robinson in the series already, her husband and the last Numenorean king, Ar-Pharazon, is almost sure to be an equally important character. Played by Trystan GravelleAr-Pharazon was the ambitious and overflowing king whose pride led to the destruction of Numenor. Eventually, this resulted in the formation of the Kingdom of Gondor, made up of exiles from the destroyed island kingdom.
It will be hard to imagine power rings happens without showing Ar-Pharazon’s impact on the world, so all fans have to wonder how his journey to power will be portrayed.
Eärendil is mentioned in The Fellowship of the Ring as Elves’ brightest star, but that might lead some moviegoers to think that’s all the star is. In fact, Tolkien Silmarillion reveals that Eärendil is actually the name of the elf who pilots one of the last remaining Silmarils across the sky, a beacon of hope for everyone below.
Eärendil is known for many great deeds: the slaying of a dragon, his risky journey to the forbidden land of Valinor, and a great legacy as one of the last descendants of the royal Noldorin line of Elves. His sons Elrond and Elros became a wise healer and commander respectively, and the first king of Numenor.
With all the scenes relevant to the First Age The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power seems to be showing interested fans so far, it’s not too unlikely that characters like the Doriathrin King Thingol could show up.
It has been instrumental in some of Middle-earth’s greatest stories – the love story of Beren and Luthien and the tragic fate of Turin Turambar come immediately to mind – and it offers the opportunity to show another aspect of the show’s budget with its Halls of Menegroth, a palace considered one of the finest pieces of architecture in the world.
Any of the Valar
The ancient god figures who helped create the world would be difficult to portray on screen. Loosely based on the gods of Norse mythology, Tolkien’s lifelong passion, the Valar are rarely described directly, more associated with their natural jurisdictions than any physical feature.
Although most beings in Middle-earth are separate from them and doubt their existence, the Valar occasionally arise to prove that they are, in fact, real – they sent Gandalf, Saruman and Glorfindel to Middle-earth , and when Ar-Pharazon dared to attempt to conquer the land of the Valar, Valinor, they destroyed Numenor.
