Before we finally get to watch Prime Video’s The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power in September, the series is getting the Hall H treatment at SDCC 2022. Which, actually, if it wasn’t coming to Hall H, we’d be more than a little bit confused. This series is, after all, kind of going to be a big deal.
According to the press release, “The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power panel will introduce the international team of actors bringing the show’s roster of new and legendary characters of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Second Age to life.” So, we’re in. It would be a pretty big understatement to say we’re looking forward to this.
Some things we’d like to see when Lord of the Rings comes to Hall H
Obviously, we can’t wait to see any and all footage they release as part of this event. After all, we loved every single second of the teaser trailer. So, anything they show in Hall H will probably be just as epic, if not better.
As Tolkien fans, we’re also looking forward to seeing other fans at the panel. Specifically, any trip to Comic-Con is an opportunity for cosplay. With that in mind, we’re betting we’ll get to see some elves and hobbits this summer. Bring it on.
Actually. Come to think of it, speaking of fans…
Our dream moderator: Stephen Colbert
Our dream moderator for this Lord of the Rings Hall H panel would be Tolkien super fanboy and walking middle-Earth encyclopedia, Stephen Colbert. Very few people on Earth could match him in terms of insightful questions. Why? Because he knows his Second Age and because he…kinda does the whole interview thing for a living.
We can’t say enough just how much Colbert is the One Tolkien Stan To Rule Them All. The late night host genuinely knows and loves the material. Like, to the point where he has gotten choked up when talking about it. And he can literally turn anything into an excuse to talk about Tolkien’s works. No, really. Anything—even NASA news.
Add in Stephen’s talent for working an audience, and he’s truly perfect for the gig. Imagine sitting there, waiting for the panel to start, and having a good laugh with one of our own. Sounds good, doesn’t it?
Oh, and he also made a brief cameo in The Hobbit. Goals.
Lord of the Rings questions, comments, concerns?
And while it might seem early to be asking this, we wouldn’t at all be mad if we hear Season 2 news. For instance, when should we expect to see it? And will there be time jumps? After all, the Second Age did last over 3000 years. As much as we’d love to see The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power cover it all, we’re not exactly immortal here.
So, what actors do you want to see, and what kind of intel are you hoping for when The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power comes to Hall H? Drop us a comment. And get ready to binge the series exclusively on Prime Video on September 2.
